DraftSeason: What do you feel sets you apart from some of the other top receivers in the nation?
Bug Howard: My upside, 6’5 220 frame, and my ability to still be very athletic at this size. The will to do the duty work to help a teammate (Blocking). Being a student of the game knowing defenses and knowing how to beat them. My catch radius and my ability to make 50/50 balls 80/20 (catching in traffic). The pride I take into special teams.
DraftSeason: You have been catching passes from the now graduated Marquise Williams your entire career, do you foresee any growing pains or setbacks with your new quarterback in the upcoming season?
