2016

Howard was the Dolphins second round pick in the 2016 draft. He was expected to compete for a starting job from day one but knee surgery may put those plans on hold for the immediate future. Howard could still land a starting spot if he can recover quickly but the more likely scenario is that he will begin the season in a reserve role as he proves to the coaching staff that he can cover the league's best receivers.
