2014 Community Projections: CB Xavien Howard

New, comments

Today's projection kicks things off in the secondary, where Xavien Howard has grabbed ahold of one starting CB spot and won't let go.

We don't have a ton to go on with Howard given that he's just a sophomore and didn't play all that much last year, but we'll do our best.

Those two guys got the bulk of the playing time last year at CB, so it makes sense to look at them now.

TACKLES / TURNOVERS CAUSED / PASSES DEFENSED

That's what we're projecting for our DBs.  I'm leaning toward doing just three DBs so that we can get done on Friday, and I can do a defensive update for everyone on Saturday.

Please keep all discussion to the Discussion Fanpost and "rec" that post if you haven't already.  Happy projecting!
