VIDEO: O.J. Howard Discusses NFL Combine Results, Preparing for Draft
Few players in this year's NFL Draft have turned as many heads as Alabama tight end O.J. Howard. The senior displayed his elite size, speed, and skill at last week's NFL Combine and that's why he's become one of the more intriguing prospects in this class.
"I felt really good about my numbers," Howard said about the combine during Alabama's Pro Day. "The 40 was very surprising and I felt great to hear the results."
Howard clocked a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash, which was second among tight ends and one of the fastest times of the week.
Mock drafts project Howard will get taken somewhere in the mid-to-late first round. Some even have him joining his former teammate Derrick Henry in Nashville. Howard confirmed that he planned to visit with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday and has another visit with the Bucs planned.
"It's a great feeling to be able to see that I'm here now about to be in the NFL. It's like a dream come true."
