Jets claimed WR Walter Powell off waivers from the Cardinals.

Powell is an undersized, athletically-deficient prospect out of Murray State. The Jets would have been better off keeping Quincy Enunwa stashed on the 53.

Cardinals signed sixth-round WR Walter Powell to a four-year contract.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) set Murray State receiving records all across the board during his career. He isn't overly explosive, as evidenced by a 4.63 forty and 31.5-inch vertical. Powell will have to show well on special teams.

Cardinals selected Murray State WR Walter Powell with the No. 196 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) is the Racers' all-time leader in receptions (208), receiving yards (2,650), and receiving scores (29). He added three career special teams TDs, two on punt returns and one on a kickoff. Unfortunately, Powell ran 4.63 at the Combine with a 31 1/2-inch vertical, and sub-200-pound receivers without top speed are generally NFL long shots. Powell was also arrested last October for domestic violence, though charges were dropped. He's a low-ceiling special teams/slot receiver prospect who may have a tough time making the Cardinals' 53.
