In the 6th Round, Chiefs Go Nose Tackle

In the sixth round with the 199th selection the Chiefs drafted DT Jerrell Powe from the University of Mississippi.

He’s 6-2, 335 pounds native of Mississippi, who missed just one game in three seasons with Ole Miss. Over his career he had 69 total tackles, 24 tackles for loss and 7 sacks.

Last season he was a team captain and started all 12 games at nose tackle. He finished with 27 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Powe graduated from Wayne County Hargrave High School with the class of 2005. He spent a year at Hargrave Military Academy in 2005. The next year he enrolled at Ole Miss but was not able to play for two years because of academic standing. He ended up playing just three years and he considered petitioning the NCAA for another year of eligibility before deciding to leave school and enter the NFL Draft.
