A fifth-round rookie from Clemson, Cornell Powell is a long shot to be fantasy-relevant in 2021. But with Andy Reid calling plays and Patrick Mahomes throwing passes, and with a wide-open competition for playing time at wide receiver alongside established star Tyreek Hill, it's not inconceivable that Powell could turn into a fantasy asset. He was a nonfactor in college until his senior year, when he had 53 catches for 882 yards and seven touchdowns. Powell went nuclear down the stretch for the Tigers last season, averaging 121.7 receiving yards over Clemson's final six games and scoring five touchdowns over that stretch, capped off by an eight catch, 139-yard, two-touchdown night against Ohio State in a playoff semifinal game. As an underclassman, Powell was buried on the Clemson depth chart behind players such as Tee Higgins, Hunter Renfrow, Deon Cain and Amari Rodgers. Powell had been a four-star high school recruit, and in a college program with so much talent at wide receiver, it's easier to understand why it took him a while to bloom. A good showing in training camp and the preseason could put Powell in the mix for snaps right away.
