Why do I keep getting these damn Phyletic Extremity Dysfunction Emails.
I swear I don’t have a problem with my Phyletic Extremity…it works fine…
I have never ordered those damn pills…
Maybe one of my ex-girlfriends gave this company my email..
…hey…wait a second…what does that say about my…um…
never mind…I’m here to talk football!
And today I have a running back for you.
A running back who powers through defenders like a machine that won’t go down!
Jordan Howard is in this alien’s assessment, the most physical back in the 2016 draft.
Yeah, sure Derrick Henry is bigger, but he doesn’t run at guys like Howard does.
at 216 pounds and under 6’0, he is not exactly the next Marshawn Lynch.
You keep thinking about that as he runs you over!
Or you can be a smart human and get out of his way!
In 2015 Howard rushed for over 1200 yards while at Indiana against some pretty stiff Big 10 competition. That was Howard’s only year at Indiana.
Howard was at UAB before Indiana. You know UAB right? The school that dropped football. You feel bad for those kids right?
Well don’t feel too bad for Howard. Transferring to Indiana probably got him to be a Day 2 pick in 2016.
In his college career at both UAB and Indiana, Howard rushed for 3,681 yards.
He didn’t catch a lot of passes. He had 24 total receptions for 261 yards.
but both running and receiving he tallied 27 touchdowns!
The guy can produce and can be a workhorse. Of course when he gets to the NFL he will probably share carries with another NFL back, like most teams use backs these days.
I bet he makes the most of those opportunities!
What really stands out about Howard is his running style.
He just never goes down!
School cancels his football program – He stays up
Defensive End gets in the background – He stays up
Linebacker hits him high – He stays up
DB hits him low – He stays up
Not a day 1 draft pick – He stays up
Kinda reminds me of something…
If Jordan Howard was an Alien Weapon of Destruction…well he might just be that little blue pill that never let’s you go limp.
