Yesterday, the Jets announced several roster moves, including successful waiver claims on WR/KR Walt Powell and CB Philip Adams. Jets fans might not know too much about these two players, so I've been looking at game film to try and assess what each of them brings to the table. I'll look at Adams later today, but for now we're assessing Powell.

Powell is a rookie receiver and kick returner who is 5'11" and 189 pounds. The Cardinals selected him in the 6th round of this year's draft but he did not make it through final cuts despite catching six passes for 106 yards and averaging 25.7 yards per kick return in preseason. He replaces Quincy Enunwa on the active roster, with Enunwa likely reverting to the practice squad as long as he clears waivers, which the Jets will hope waiting a day or two makes more likely.

After the jump, observations from reviewing footage from preseason to evaluate Powell's strengths and weaknesses.

Who is Walt Powell?

Powell was a small school prospect out of Murray State, where he led for three straight years in receiving. He was also a team captain and productive kick and punt returner. At the scouting combine, he ran a disappointing time in the 40-yard dash. However, he was apparently suffering from an injured foot and did much better at his pro day (4.44). Gil Brandt also reported that he put on an impressive display on the field at his pro day, which no doubt factored into the Cardinals picking him up in the sixth round.

Powell apparently impressed at camp and was able to avoid being a final cut for the Cardinals after a solid preseason, only to then be released one day later. The Cardinals have a pretty deep receiver unit so it's a good sign that he was in the mix there.

Although we don't have too much to go on (117 offensive snaps), we can still learn a lot from his preseason performances.

Preseason

Week 1 - v Houston

In this game, Powell caught three passes for 74 yards on four targets and had a tackle on special teams. He made an immediate impact with a 45 yard gain down the sideline. This appeared to be a blown coverage, but he made a nifty move downfield to avoid a safety and pick up 20 extra yards. His next catch saw him gain 18 on an out pattern which he caught high and then turned upfield for some extra yards. His final reception saw him make a first down catch just beyond the marker on a curl route. Powell was also targeted deep on two long bombs down the sideline and had a step each time but the pass was overthrown and sailed out of bounds. One was negated by a penalty anyway. He also had a solid special teams tackle at the 16 on kick coverage. The only real negatives were that he was twice called for holding and also was responsible for an illegal formation penalty.

Week 2 - at Minnesota

Powell was targeted three times in this game, making two nine yard catches. The first of these was on a quick slant for a first down and the second came as he stopped just short of the marker on a timing route. On each occasion he had a defensive back draped all over him. His other target was some kind of a communication breakdown as he ran a deep in-route and the quarterback threw right down the seam. He did have another throw his way, a low throw that he could come up with on a diving attempt, but the defense was offside anyway so this didn't count. Powell had mixed results as a blocker in this game. On one play he motioned to the edge but seemed unsure of who to block and ended up getting in the runner's way and on another he didn't sustain his block on the edge although the runner still was able to make a short yardage conversion. He did make a good open field block on a defensive back on a screen pass though. On special teams, he got work as a gunner, drawing some double team attention but not really getting close to the return man.

Week 3 - v Cincinnati

Powell didn't see much action on offense in this game and wasn't targeted. However, he was used as a return man for the first time. On one kickoff return, he made 24 yards, eluding the first man and then turning the corner before being forced out at the 20. On another though, he slipped as he went to make his first cut and faceplanted at the 15. On one punt return, he made seven yards but that was negated by a hold. Once again, he was flagged for lining up in the wrong spot on offense.

Week 4 - at San Diego

In this game, Powell got plenty of opportunities, with one rushing attempt for two yards, a 14-yard catch on one of his two targets, a chance to field punts and five kick returns. He made the best impact as a kick returner, getting out past the 25 on four of his five attempts. He broke two tackles on his longest return, a 37-yarder, and showed good vision and cuts on the other three. The only time he failed saw him start to go East-West at about the 15 at which point bad blocking led to him being snowed under at the 13. He was less successful as a punt return man, with his longest return being just four yards as he eluded the first man but not the second wave. There was one punt where he perhaps made an ill-advised and awkward catch in traffic.

His one catch was a nice play on 3rd and nine. They looked for him underneath on a short crossing route and he was wide open. The pass was slightly behind him but he adjusted, reversed his field and eluded three defensive players to get past the marker for a gain of 14. His other target saw him tightly covered on a quick slant that was thrown high. They were looking for him on another play, an out pattern where he seemed to be open, but that was batted down at the line. His rushing attempt saw him run an end around pattern behind the quarterback who then pitched it to him on a read option on 3rd and three. He was nailed short of the marker in the open field. Once again he was called for a hold while blocking on a wide receiver screen, as he let his man leverage off the block.

Observations

Based on all the footage watched, here was what Powell brings to the table, divided into categories:

Measurables - As noted, Powell calmed doubts about his lack of speed with a solid forty time at his pro day. However, looking at the rest of his measurables, they're mostly about average. He did have a very good three-cone drill (6.70) and does have big hands, which makes up in part for his short arms. Powell is a bit slight and will probably need to bulk up and add some strength.

Usage - Powell played both in the slot and outside in preseason. He was also put into motion quite a lot, often motioning to the edge of the line as an effective "move TE". In college, he played as the Z receiver which means he can be put into motion and would need quickness and slot-like skills.

Deep threat - While Powell didn't have any deep catches in preseason, he did beat his man deep a couple of times on unsuccessful throws.

Blocking - The Jets have targeted good blockers with most of the receivers they've added of late, but Powell is a bit of a work in progress here. He's definitely a willing blocker, but in the small sample size preseason gave me, there were too many examples of players muscling off his blocks and him having to grab to keep on top of them.

Routes - Powell is fast and can make sharp cuts, but I'd say his route running needs a little refinement. A defensive back was all over him on quite a few of his targets where he might have got better separation by getting deeper into his route, disguising it better or just by being more physical at the break.

Hands - Powell seems to make smooth hands catches. The only two he didn't come up with were a high throw that was on him quickly and a low throw which he dived for. In each case these were practically uncatchable and I wouldn't call them drops. Some of the catches he did make were in tight coverage.

Yards after the catch - Powell made some good plays after the catch on three of his six catches, so there's some definite promise here, especially in an offense like the Jets' which seeks to get playmakers the ball in the open field.

Instincts - Other than the one run blocking play where he looked a little lost and the play where he apparently ran a different route to what the quarterback was expected, there weren't many negative signs here. He was described as smart in the pre-draft process. He did line up in the wrong spot twice, though, causing two illegal formation penalties.

Special Teams - Here's where Powell has a real chance to contribute. Saalim Hakim was not impressive returning kicks in preseason, while Powell was. He seems to read his blocks well and negotiates traffic too. He was less convincing on punt returns, but then again only got to field a handful and didn't make any major errors. He looked okay on kick coverage and when employed as a gunner, but wasn't outstanding in those roles.

Attitude - As a former team captain, Powell's intangibles are highly touted. He's apparently a hard worker and passionate about learning his craft and getting better (which he does need to work at in several areas). He did have an arrest for domestic violence in his past but that was thrown out due to lack of evidence.

Injuries - Powell is healthy at the moment. He did miss the last two games of last season with a foot injury but doesn't appear to have any major medical red flags.

Conclusions

Something to watch for with all these waiver claims is that the team might keep the player for a day or two, then try to sneak them onto their practice squad. It's a tactic the Jets have employed in the past at this time of year. However, if Powell can impress with his kickoff return skills this week, I could see him being active on Sunday. Philip Adams is not eligible, but I could definitely see the Jets taking that approach with Leon McFadden who is, in my opinion, far too green to risk throwing out there for any meaningful snaps.

Powell himself is pretty green as a receiver (although I quite like his potential based on what I saw) but gives the Jets another option who can at least line up there and perhaps have a few special packages to utilise his skill-set. Much like Hakim and Jalen Saunders, it's on special teams where he's going to be able to forge himself a role.

Jets LB Demario Davis has been a cornerstone of the team's defense this season, but it wasn't always that way. 

When returning to the Jets this offseason after a season with the Browns, fans and media crushed Davis, saying he wasn't worth bringing back after serving four previous season in Green & White. Davis didn't prove them wrong in the first two weeks of the season either as he struggled mightily on the field. 

Davis spoke with SNY's Jonas Schwartz and Willie Colon on "The Jet Stream Podcast" to talk about how he dealt with the pressure, and turned around his season...

The Jets will select LSU DE Arden Key with the tenth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, predicts ESPN's Todd McShay.

Despite the Jets' need for a steady arm at the quarterback position, McShay points out their edge rushers need some improvement as well. This is why McShay can't see the Jets passing up on who he thinks is the most natural defensive end coming out of college this season...

The Jets worked out two CFL players on Tuesday: WR DaVaris Daniels and CB Garry Peters, reports NY Daily News' Manish Mehta. 

The 6-foot-1, 207 pound Daniels has played his past two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, who made it to the Grey Cup last season. In 13 games last season, the Notre Dame product caught 47 receptions for 743 yards and four touchdowns. 

Peters has played for the Edmonton Eskimos the past two seasons, where he most recently won the Grey Cup. The 5-foot-11, 190 pound cornerback notched 35 tackles and three special teams tackles this past season. 

As the custom with CFL players converting to the NFL, the Jets may be looking at Daniels and Peters for potential futures deals after the season. CFL players generally are not allowed to sign with NFL teams until their contracts expire in February.

Any lingering hopes of the Jets remaining in playoff contention were put to rest by a struggling Broncos team that was met with scant resistance in their 23-0 win. This continues a season-long pattern of futility on the road for this Jets team, which drops to 5-8 on the year and now seems destined to end up 5-11 for the season season in a row.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the offensive side of the ball:

GEICO SportsNite: FNNY on Jets 00:03:08
The Football Night in New York crew break down the Jets ugly 23-0 loss to the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

After Jets quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken left hand in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, second-string quarterback Bryce Petty said he feels "ready" to step up for New York's Week 15 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

"I am going to give my heart and soul and prepare for this week for New Orleans," Petty said, according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes. "Whatever happens in the future, happens, but all I can do is worry about things I can control. Whether Josh plays, or whether he doesn't, I am going to go in there prepared and ready to lead this team."

Given McCown's injury is on his non-throwing hand, it is unclear if he will play during the team's final three games of the season. Head coach Todd Bowles said McCown will undergo further tests this week to evaluate his status for the rest of the season.

THE GAME

The Jets (5-7) face the Denver Broncos (3-9) at Sports Authority field at Mile high in Denver, on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 4:05 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER:

December in Denver is always a little nicer than I think it's going to be. Temperatures on Sunday should be slightly over 60 with light winds and sunny skies.

WHAT IT MEANS

It means everything to the Jets. They are two games behind the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the last wild-card spot in the AFC with only four games to play, so they can't afford any slip-ups. They also have to hope for some help because just to get to the Ravens, they have to jump over the Chargers, Bills and Raiders, who are all one game ahead of the Jets. It's not going to be easy. It's probably impossible. But the Jets have no shot if they don't win all four of their remaining games.
