You guys are seriously underrating Howard... he was horribly schemed In nagys system and everyone thought he was a top 10 hb before last season. In 2017 in a zone blocking scheme he avg 4.1 yards per carry even though 43% of his runs came in 8 or more defenders in the box. That’s with a horrible bears oline that was injured. Give me James williams in the draft and we’re set.

Howard was really bad last year for the Bears. Our offensive numbers really went down when he was on the field. He was always going to be gone this offseason as he simply is not a big enough threat in the passing game.

Positives

Hard runner and rarely fumbles

Good pass protector

Negative

0 Homerun ability, in fact he is kind of slow

Nothing really in the passing game. He caught 20/26 passes, but average depth of target was .19 yards.

Only really runs zone, his numbers in the power game were horrible.

I also think you guys are to high on clement, he was bad last year and tries so hard to be like ajayi when he’s not that kind of runner. He has horrible vision it’s almost like he picks where he’s gonna run before the snap and won’t change it. He has tunnel vision. Now with a acl injury he’s gonna be slower

He was much better in 2017.

He just isn't versatile at all. If you just zone run him and do not ask him to catch passes then he has obvious value.
