Summary: Matt Howard is a great college basketball player, but his skills do not necessarily translate to the next level. Still, he could get looks at the next level due to his intangibles, and actually make a roster thanks to the energy he brings. More than likely, he goes undrafted, but a team could take a second-round flier.
Player Comparison: Eduardo Najera. How does Najera still have a role in the NBA? Because he brings the same intangibles to the floor that Howard does at the college level. If Howard gets his chance in the league, he will have to follow the same path of the Najeras, Brian Cardinals, Brian Scalabrines and Mark Madsens of the world by working his tail off.
Will the broncos realistically be able to snag Zach Cunningham like you're predicting? This is a dream scenario for me as he's my favorite true Inside Linebacker in this draft. I see him coming off almost everyone's day 2 mock draft super early besides yours. He's had tackling issues when coming from behind and doesn't have that elite speed but...will he really drop that far? Oh I've never been so excited for round 2 of the nfl draft!!! Thoughts?
