With pick No. 169 in the NFL Draft, the
The Saints have focused on defense with four of their first five picks with cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebacker Khairi Fortt, safety Vinnie Sunseri and now Powell. He could have the chance to earn his stripes as a reserve linebacker in New Orleans.
Powell was the No. 1 defensive end recruit in 2010, but he struggled to stay healthy at Florida. He sat out the 2012 season when he tore his left ACL twice. He started 8 of 11 games played in 2013, but he strained his left hamstring running the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Powell will play on special teams and be a reserve for the Saints as a rookie.
