Bilal Powell, the 2011 fourth-round pick by the New York Jets has moved up to take the No. 1 spot on their depth chart.
He has played 2 seasons with the Jets, including 2 games as a rookie in 2011 and 14 games in 2012. This season he beats out Joe McKnight to be No. 1 on the Jets' chart. Incidentally, McKnight is not even second, he is listed as No. 3 on the chart. If I recall correctly, McKnight, (the overall No. 1 recruit coming out of high school) was plucked by Pete Carroll out of LSU's backyard to come play at USC.
Just goes to show the talent we had, which was never developed or used to its full extent under HWSNBN. Bilal, to his (and our) good fortune, had one year with Charlie Strong and Kenny Carter. He ran and never looked back that year.
Here's wishing Bilal a long and productive career in the NFL!
