“I just started watching him today and I know why you like him, but he’s what I call a ‘sack of potatoes’ back. He’s going to keep getting dropped like a sack of potatoes in this league with that running style.” — NFC running backs coach
Howard has the optimal size and talent needed to strap the pads on and become a productive workhorse for a team looking for one, true lead back. Howard’s vision, power and subtle shiftiness allow him to create and break tackles along the way.
