High Side: Justin Howe
I’m targeting Crowell fairly consistently in 2017 drafts, though it’s not because I see a lot of upside in him. He wasn’t much of a prospect in 2014, going undrafted after uneven college production and a good-not-great combine. He plays on a terrible team that will struggle to win five games and won’t be on the goal line often. And he splits his backfield with a talented pass-catcher. I’m not sure he carries the ceiling of a top-eight back. And while these are all legitimate narratives, I still see a nice, sturdy floor for a number of reasons, and I don’t agree with the wide-running belief that his 2017 is destined for a production dip.
