Overview

Powe could become an effective run-stopping, two-gap defensive tackle or possibly a 3-4 nose tackle due to his tremendous size and lower body strength. Usually requires a double team in the running game. Does more than just eat space, he can penetrate and also make some plays outside the box. Can push the pocket with his bull rush but needs to polish up his technique and moves. Like many other bid-bodied DT's, needs to watch his conditioning level. Gets plays off and becomes less dominant against the run later in games. Powe could entice a team to select him as high as the second round.


Strengths

Powe possesses excellent bulk coupled with good speed for his size. Can take on and beat the double team. Clogs the middle and does a good job anchoring. Fires off the ball and uses the bull rush to get to the passer. Sure tackler once he latches onto the ball-carrier.

Weaknesses

Endurance is an issue. Wears down on long drives and late in games. Needs to watch his pad level at times. Can be shoved off balance and is knocked down more often than other players with his stout build. Needs to have more passing rushing moves in his arsenal.

Grade

3.1
