Sam Howell (QB) North CarolinaHowell came onto the scene in 2019 as a freshman and looked good.  In his first season, he completed over 61 percent of his passes for 3,641 yards, 39 touchdowns (one rushing), and seven interceptions. This earned him ACC Rookie of the Year honors. He followed an outstanding 2019 with another great season 2020. As a sophomore, he threw for 3,586, 30 TDs, and seven interceptions in a Covid shortened season while completing over 68 percent of his passes. All he had to do to lock himself in at the top of the 2022 NFL Draft was continue to develop and not fall off a cliff. He did not continue to develop and fell off a cliff in 2021. Fortunately, his numbers are better than his film but that won’t stop him from falling out the first round of the draft. He threw for 3,056 yards, 24 TDs, and nine interceptions while completing 62.5 percent of his passes. He also began to run a lot more rushing for 828 yards and eleven TDs. While this was effective at UNC with his lack of speed and quickness it likely won’t translate to the NFL.
