O.J. Howard’s combination of massive hands and extraordinary speed for a TE make him a great target for any NFL QB. He’s known for big after-the-catch ability, as linebackers have no chance when matched up against him in the open field.

Howard may, however, struggle as a blocking tight end at the next level. He appeared passive as a blocker at Alabama, and some question his conviction to play football for a living. Another head-scratcher is just how come Howard was never a huge factor in the 2016 offense after a breakout 2015 season. Howard recorded just 595 receiving yards and three TD his last year there, hinting there may have been something going on behind the scenes between he and the coaching staff. But either way, you can’t argue with his raw physical talent, and it will be interesting to see what kind of Wonderlic test scores OJ Howard comes up with.
