Coming out of high school, OJ Howard was number one in the country. Howard was born in Prattville Alabama, where he attended high school at Autauga Academy, so naturally, when it came time for college he chooses to play for Nick Saben at the University of Alabama. For Howards freshman year he only started five games, and his sophomore year looks about the same. Junior year, he had a tremendous year, he concluded it with two touchdowns, and 208 yards, with a total of 5 catches, against Clemson, that victory earned him the offensive MVP for the National Championship game. During his senior year, they lost to Clemson where Howard had 106 yards and only one touchdown. Howard is a gifted player, no doubt about that with his long arms and massive hands. I think he will be a great asset to any team. In his highlight reels in highs school, he looks like a man among boys. He took a big risk going to Alabama because they don’t have a strong throwing game, but he provides to be good anyway. He is the type of football player that keep defensive backs up at night.

With the draft getting closer official visits are underway. Today’s draft prospect that I am writing about is WR Corey Davis, who attended the University of Western Michigan. Where he was a four-year starter with 332 receptions for a total of 5285 yards and 52 touchdowns. He leads Western Michigan to its first win in bowl history, at the Bahama’s bowl against
Middle Tennessee State, he had 183 receiving yards during this game alone. During the NFL Combine Davis said, “I don’t get intimidated by who lines up in front of me, they bleed red just like me” (Everett). Davis can run every route on the route tree. He may not be as well known as some of the other receivers from more well-known university, but his measurables make up for it. When you need a big catch this wide receiver does not disapoint.
Mike Willams attended Lake Marion High School in South Carolina, and “was rated as the 180th player in the nation, and number 2 in the state of South Carolina”, according to 247sports .com. He then went on to play college football at the University of Clemson-South Carolina. In 2015 he suffered a fracture to the neck during Clemson’s first drive of the season, putting him out for that season, but definitely not out as he would soon prove. In 2016, Willams had 1,361 receiving yards and was the team leader with 98 receptions and 11 touchdowns. Williams caught a touchdown in the final drive against Alabama leading the Tigers to a victory.This guy is unstoppable. He earned his undergraduate degree in sociology in December of 2016 and now he is looking to make his mark in the NFL.
The Titans could use this man on their team. He could bring a set of skills the Titans need and are looking for. At Clemson’s pro day Williams ran a 4.55 and showed off his catch radius. The Titans head coach was on hand among many other NFL teams, looking to see what Willams could bring to the table. As normal he showed off his skills like a true professional.
