Bilal Powell #29 RB
Height: 5-10 Weight: 204 Age: 26
Born: 10/27/1988 Lakeland , FL
Experience: 5th season
High School: Lake Gibson HS [Lakeland, FL]
Selected By: New York Jets
Pick (Overall): 29 (126)
Powell had a breakout season in 2010, and he has vision to excel in a zone blocking scheme at the next level. He possesses a knack for finding a seam and can accelerate on a dime to find daylight. He is very elusive in the open field, as he can idle down and then explode past a defender. He does not have the strength to run over people in the NFL, but he keeps his legs churning and usually falls forward after contact. Powell is a very good one-cut and go back and could be a middle round pick.
