Pos: 
Powerful, small-area blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Strong, gets his hands into defenders and easily drives them off the line of scrimmage. Stays square, consistently opens running lanes and works to block with proper pad level. Seals defenders from the action and anchors in pass protection. Explosive at the point and fires off the snap. Displays terrific vision to pick up stunts and twists and works well with linemates.
Neg: 
Struggles to adjust and gets exploited by quicker opponents. Really cannot slide in space. Marginally effective in motion.
Analysis: 
Powers is a dominant small-area blocker but is a scheme-specific lineman who would not be effective in a zone system. He's a bit of a throwback and could be a starter in a conventional offense.
