Selected by New Orleans Saints in round 2, pick 2 (#33 overall)

6'3½" 278 5.07 - 4.34 - 29 9'0" 8.39
Darren Howard
A very athletic end with solid legs, long arms and huge hands. Needs to improve his upper body strength. Very quick off the ball. Leads with his hands and sheds well. Plays low, but isn't strong anchoring. Can be ridden out. Has quick feet and good redirection. Disciplined. Active from the backside, but inconsistent in pursuit. More quick than fast. Solid pass rusher. Agile to the inside. Uses his hands well. Has the loose hips to turn the corner. Closes with a burst. Can longsnap. A little inconsistent, but has the tools to be a very good pro.
