Sam Howell

Howell's performance was impacted by a mediocre OL (he should fit in nicely here lmao).  Kid was sacked 100+ times in 3 seasons.

He also lost his top weapons to the 2021 NFL Draft:

  • 2nd Round: Javonte Williams, RB, Denver Broncos
  • 3rd Round: Dyami Brown, WR, Washington Football Team
  • 4th Round: Michael Carter, RB, New York Jets
  • 6th Round: Dazz Newsome, WR, Chicago Bears

To be honest, I expected his numbers to take a dip considering he lost his WR1, WR2, RB1, and RB2 (and all are producing in their rookie seasons as pros). The fact that, while they did drop, he still seemed to consistently perform speaks highly for him.

People here don’t seem to understand or comprehend that UNC football is NOT UGA or Bama or Ohio State football where they just get crops and crops of these NFL prospects and can easily replace them. It is a big deal when UNC loses big time skill position players like we did last year because it takes a little bit of time and effort to replace them. Carolina has to actually develop some guys and not just operate a revolving door at WR, RB, etc. 

like I’ve said 1000x before the hate on Howell and Trubisky and UNC football on teh huddle is basically because there are a numerous amount of Duke fans, state fans, and people that don’t like the UNC basketball team. It’s funny to read a lot of the comments because it is painfully obvious I am correct. Ignorance is bliss.

Quietly, one of the biggest losses for UNC was Beau Corrales. He's not an NFL prospect, but he is a darn good college possession receiver who was expected to be able to keep us from being a one man receiving crew until we could develop some youth. Instead, he got injured and left us with a damn good WR in Josh Downs but nothing outside of not yet ready youth beyond him.

Agree with this. Security blanket WR who had good hands and a solid connection with Sam. Would have helped tremendously this year not only Sam but also Downs and Morales.

Alright, I just did a 15ish minute dive looking at this dude as I dont remember seeing anything from him last year.  His highlight film is nice.  He has a classic throwing motion eerily similar to Kerry Collins.  He also has great size which I didnt know beforehand.  He appears to have a strong arm and no problem throwing to the sidelines deep.  He seems to process his reads rather quickly and dumps off when the heat gets a bit hot.   He even had a couple of off platform throws that was nice to see.

 

Yeah man he looks like a legit prospect although I dont see much in regards to his athleticism or ability to move out of the pocket which may be a red flag but I dont know.  I just watched 2 videos, will definitely check him out next season.

 

 

He's not Manning levels of immobile, but he can move a little:

Again lifelong UNC fan. Lived in Chapel Hill as a child. Went to games in Carmichael including the world famous Duke Carolina game. Grandfather Rams club member.

I think Howell is probably a career backup.

The only way Sammy Big Gun is a “career backup” is if he get drafted by the Chiefs.

Honestly he checks a lot of boxes. It’s been a small sample size so far, but if he lights it up next year he should definitely be in the mix with Young/Stroud.
