Strengths

Howard has been a durable player for the Gators. He is very quick off the ball for his size, although he can forget his technique (a testament to his inconsistent play overall) and rise up to get stonewalled by offensive linemen at times. He is very good against the run and has the ability to snap quickly off the ball, engage a lineman, then work off him to move laterally towards a running back and make a big-time play in the backfield.

Weaknesses

Howard is very inconsistent. There were times at Florida when he would just let himself get blocked. He is late to disengage from his man on many plays, and this really hurts his ability to be consistent. When he sees an opening, he can hit it and make a big play, but he shouldn't be relied upon to defeat blocks and make plays on his own.
