You only get to take so many people with you to the draft so I thought it was best because I’ve had a lot of people involved in my life through the process so I wanted to share that moment with everybody, Howard told Sporting News. It was best for me to stay back and have everybody here for a party.
Comfortable might be the way to describe Howard, a 6-6, 251-pound tight end who impressed at the NFL Combine with a 4.51 in the 40-yard yard dash. Howard averaged 15.1 yards per reception over four years with Alabama. He’s most remembered for his play in the last two national championship games against Clemson.
The gap between Cook and top-10 picks Leonard Fournette and McCaffrey still shouldn’t be that wide. Cook was every bit as productive as those counterparts. Cook rushed for 3,456 yards and 38 touchdowns the last two seasons. He will show that over the next few seasons. It works out for Minnesota, which gets to replace one franchise back in Adrian Peterson with another one in Cook.

The Cowboys took a cornerback, Chidobie Awuzie, in the second round, and reportedly are shopping incumbent Orlando Scandrick. Where Lewis fits in is hard to predict so early. He has a window to play. But he was not projected as an automatic starter, even before his legal issues. He was the 15th cornerback taken in a deep draft.
