Bio: 
Former starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and rushed 112 times for 740 yards and five touchdowns in 2017. Led Florida Atlantic with 13 rushing touchdowns and 168 carries and rushed for 833 yards as a junior. Finished first on the team with 133 rushes and 598 yards on the ground and added three touchdowns in 2015. Carried 50 times for 253 yards and one score as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Large, downhill ball carrier coming off a disappointing season. Strong, picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact and moves the pile. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, finds running lanes and works to pick up as much yardage as possible every time he handles the ball. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes.
Neg: 
Marginal quickness and speed. Gets in trouble when he tries to run east and west.
Analysis: 
Howell entered the season with a late-round grade from scouts but failed to capitalize on his solid junior campaign. He possesses the size and skill to be a short-yardage or goal line ball carrier but must quickly produce in camp this summer.
