Bo-bo-bo-bo-bounce with me, bounce with me?

Not much to say about former Ivy Leaguer and short-time Tennessee Titans defensive lineman David Howard. Taken with pick No. 241 in the 2010 NFL Draft, Howard never made the team. He “bounced” around numerous practice squads but has never recorded an NFL statistic.

As far as this whole “bouncing” matter, here.

Let’s wrap up the individual player grades for these 2010 NFL Draft report cards from Titan Sized.

"Alterraun Verner, Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle, Ivy Leaguer David Howard… was Jeff Fisher trying to offset the “stupid” that Albert Haynesworth had left behind? Seriously though, Howard was waived during his rookie season and has never recorded an NFL statistic. His noteworthy accomplishment: pleading no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge from a bar incident in 2009. Sounds like Haynesworth’s “stupid” can have contagious effects, even on Ivy Leaguers."

Josh Gunnels (Assistant Editor, Lead Columnist): 50 (F)

"Who?  The Titans waived Howard the year they drafted him.  He’s bounced around the league a bit since then and is currently without a team.  Not much to say here.  Oh, he did plead no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge brought against him while working as a bouncer, so there’s that."

David Fleming (Contributor): 40 (F)

"Howard has bounced around between several teams during his brief tenure in the NFL, and he is currently a free agent. He has never recorded a single stat in the NFL, and he probably never will. The Titans took a swing and a miss on this late round prospect."


Titan Sized Staff (3 Participants): 43.3 (F)

"50 + 40 + 40 = (130 / 3) = 43.3"


Doing a poll is rather pointless because it’s obvious that he’ll receiving a failing grade. It’s just a matter of how much of a failing grade. Therefore, I’ll hand the “F” grade to Howard and distribute the final exams within the next two days. When all the picks are mashed together, what kind of a grade will the Titans receive?
