Card: Leaf Rookies 2012
Acquired: 2012, Box Breaker
6-2, 311 Tydreke Powell played collegiately for North Carolina, where he was team captain of the defense from his defensive tackle position. In his senior season he finished with 47 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 1 pass defensed, and a forced fumble. Considered raw and unpolished, many scouts believed that he has aggressive natural talent and athleticism that will allow him to develop with the right team at the NFL level with the right conditioning and training. If there was a better place to land- I am not sure of many, as Powell was signed as an undrafted free agent by the defensive line stacked Minnesota Vikings. Tydreke did not see any playing time his rookie year, but Jared Allen thinks he has an amazing singing voice.
