Howard has clearly established himself as one of the league's elite cornerbacks who can play shutdown defense while also posing a threat as a playmaker. Since the arrival of Byron Jones in 2020, Howard has averaged 40 solo tackles, 7.5 interceptions, and 17.5 passes defensed. Numbers like that make him a pretty safe CB1 option, although the low tackle numbers will lead to more week-to-week variability.
