The Skinny
The upside on Jeremi Powell is his athletic abilities. He is fast enough to run track and competes at a state level in high jump and triple jump. He played running back and linebacker in high school. As a linebacker he is known for punishing hits. His tapes show a knack for taking proper angles to the football and plays downhill. He can play up or in the three-point stance.
The only real downside is his weight, which should not be a problem once Mickey Mariotti gets a hold of him.
Powell should contribute immediately on special teams and be a good fit in the Buck position or at the other OLB spot, especially rushing the passer. He had 15 sacks and two defensive touchdowns his junior year.
