Bio: 
Two-year starter who ran with the first team in his lone season at UAB after transferring from Illinois. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and made 25 tackles (4.5 for loss) with one sack as a senior. Missed the final 10 games of the 2014 season due to a foot injury and missed the entire 2015 campaign after suffering another foot injury in training camp. Started six games as a sophomore and recorded 22 tackles
Pos: 
Nice-sized defensive lineman who can be tough to handle. Bends his knees, plays with proper pad level and effectively uses his hands. Shows the ability to change direction and get down the line in pursuit of the action. Tough to move off the point and effectively occupies the gaps.
Neg: 
Displays limited quickness and explosion. Slow to get off blocks. Handled at the point.
Analysis: 
Powell has a next-level build and offers possibilities at defensive tackle in a four-man line, and he could develop into a zero-technique lineman in time.
