Scouting Report on Ronald Powell

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Tall, yet lean, and muscular athlete with very little body fat. He is the guy that should walk off the bus first.
Needs Improvement: Doesn't always give 110 percent on every practice rep. When he turns it on, he is the best in the country as a pass rusher.
Most Impressive: Has the speed, strength and athleticism to beat much bigger offensive linemen. He can win battles up front using technique, speed or strength. He also has amazing athleticism that allows him to also possibly be used as a threat at tight end on offense or as a linebacker in certain defensive schemes.
Conclusion: Should end up one of the premier pass-rushing defensive ends in a couple years. He has all the physical tools to play this game for a long time.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
