Draft 2019

Pick No.23

Selected By: Houston Texans

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 23 (23)

Pick Analysis: Howard has grown from a high school quarterback and basketball star into a NFL prospect on the offensive line. He redshirted as a tight end for the Hornets in 2014 but managed to work his way onto the field at right tackle the following season (six starts in eight games played). Howard started seven games on the rights side his sophomore year before replacing NFL draft pick Jylan Ware at left tackle, starting all 11 games in 2017. SWAC coaches named him the Hornets' only first-team all-conference selection in 2018 after he started 10 games at right tackle.
