Summary

Bilal Powell is in a crowded backfield, but might actually be the one back on the roster who can give us clarity about his position. Whereas Chris Ivory, Zac Stacy and Stevan Ridley are all big power-backs, Powell is more of a third-down option who can do a tad more than that. He can catch the ball and pass-block well, but offers little in the way of speed and big-play ability, and isn't reliable enough to carry a full load. That said, you can at least assume he gets a fair amount of passing-down work. That, and the fact that he won't be splitting carries is the upside. The downside is the fact that he won't be splitting carries because he's just plain not going to get enough of them to be a real factor. Even if one of the three bigger backs don't make the final roster, Powell still will see the field rarely. That makes him a late round flier, at best and a waste of a roster space to start the season at worst. (May 17)
