ESPN: Jerrell Powe entering NFL Draft

Bruce Feldman of ESPN is reporting that Ole Miss defensive tackle Jerrell Powe will enter the 2011 NFL Draft.

Powe cited his age, 24, for entering the draft. A blue chip recruit out of high school in 2005, Powe had academic troubles and attended a prep school before beginning his college football career in 2008.

On the season, Powe had 27 tackles, eight and a half tackles for loss and two and a half sacks. In 2009, Powe had 38 tackles, seven and a half tackles for loss and three sacks.

The general feeling is that Powe was much more disruptive in 2009. However, he faced consistent double teams this season. He's one of the few natural nose tackles in this year's class. Because of that, he could be selected in the first 100 choices.
