Bilal Powell   #29 RB

Height: 5-10   Weight: 204   Age: 30

Born: 10/27/1988 Lakeland , FL

College: Louisville

Experience: 8th season

High School: Lake Gibson HS [Lakeland, FL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.126

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 29 (126)

Pick Analysis: 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.
