He is seen by some as the best quarterback in the next spring’s NFL Draft. But Howell struggled a bit this season. He was sacked eight times and made three interceptions in his first two matches.

In just over two seasons at Chapel Hill, Howell threw 72 touchdowns and 17 picks while completing 64.3% of his passes.

With Ben Roethlisberger up in the air and no clear start to the long run after his departure, many are wondering if the Steelers will make a boost in the draft or in free agency this spring.

Dan’s Big B-Day
