Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: He will need to continue to work hard in the weight room, but has the size and frame that colleges look for in a defensive tackle prospect, but he also seems like he could be considered as a candidate to also play along the offensive line. When he plays with the correct pad level he is much tougher to block.
