Purdue DT Ra’Zahn Howard Declaring For 2016 Supplemental Draft

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Purdue DT Ra’Zahn Howard will declare for next month’s supplemental draft.

  • Schefter adds that Howard is holding a Pro Day in New Jersey on July 8.

Howard has played three seasons at Purdue, but is entering the 2016 supplemental draft, due to academic reasons, according to Schefter.

Reports from a a month ago mentioned that Howard was planning to transfer from Purdue, but it appears as though he plans to focus on a pro career via the supplemental draft.

Last year, the Rams elected to use a fifth-round pick on OT Isaiah Battle, which was the first time a player had been taken since the Browns drafted WR Josh Gordon back in 2012.

During his college career, Howard recorded 47 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss including three sacks, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.
