Howard is a possible starter on Missouri’s defensive line in 2017 and could be yet another Missouri lineman to head to the NFL. The Tigers’ defensive line has been one of the most prolific in the country over the last 10 years and Charles Harris was a first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins in May.

Howard appeared in four games in 2016 as a sophomore and had three tackles and a half sack. The St. Louis native was a three-star recruit in the class of 2015 and had 12 tackles as a freshman.
