Weaknesses:


Despite being effective in pass protection, he possesses minimal length, which could be an issue when dealing with longer interior linemen at the next level. When it comes to pas level, Powers-Johnson has a habit of playing a little high, which compromises his leverage in one-on-one battles. When moving in open space, Powers-Johnson needs to be a little more aware of his surroundings, as he has the tendency to fall off balance on outside zone runs.
