Powell joins Jets Dan Leberfeld

The Jets stuck to their board and picked Louisville running back Bilal Powell in the fourth round.

He is coming off a terrific senior season for the Cardinals, rushing for 1,405 yards and catching 18 passes. He hurt his knee late in the season and didn’t work out  the combine.

He overcame a rough childhood in Florida, and has turned his life around.

Powell is fearless runner who is more quick than fast.

He will give the Jets more quality depth at the running back position.
