2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Jets used a fourth-round pick in 2010 to acquire the Louisville product and he will get his first chance to earn extended playing time this season after sitting behind Shonn Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson and Joe McKnight as a rookie. Powell touched the rock in just two games last season, gaining 21 yards on 13 carries and showing little promise as an NFL back. However, Greene has failed to impress and McKnight is better suited running outside the tackles. There is a decent chance that Powell will sit third on the depth chart coming out of training camp but if Greene were to go down or struggle, Powell just might leapfrog McKnight to earn a more significant role.

News From The Past 90 Days
Ivory the favorite to be Jets' RB1     -- Fri Aug 7 4:20 pm --

HC: "He's going to have to become a better receiver"
The New York Jets have a crowded backfield, but one back has yet to emerge as a bellcow to shoulder the load. Chris Ivory is the leading man for the job, but Stevan Ridley, Bilal Powell, and Zac Stacy are waiting in the wings. Ivory, who's split carries with Chris Johnson and Powell the past two years, respectively, is hoping that 2015 is his breakout campaign as a No. 1 back. "Right now, Im doing pretty much everything," Ivory said via ESPN." Although he has led the Jets in carries the last two seasons, he hasn't exactly found himself head-and-shoulders above his competition. This season could be different, as head coach Todd Bowles has been impressed with Ivory thus far. There's just one area of concern for Bowles, where Ivory needs to improve. "Hes as advertised," Bowles said. "We knew he was tough and he could pound it up in there. But he cuts well, hes got good vision [too]. "Hes going to have to become a better receiver," Bowles continued. "He has decent hands. He just needs to concentrate a little more." (Fox Sports)

FF Today's Take: Averaging just 592 rushing yards per season over his five years in the NFL, Ivory is far from a sexy pick. However, he racked up a career-high 943 total rushing and receiving yards last year and seven touchdowns. If he can secure the top spot on the Jets' depth chart, he could be a serviceable RB2 if you're still in the market for a back in the middle rounds.
