I don't know that Powell is much of a home-run hitter, but what I saw on Sunday was a guy who has the vision to get 5 yards on a play where Greene would have only gotten 2. That's huge when it comes to play selection on the next down.
More Vlad + more Powell/McKnight = more opportunites to keep the defense on its heels.
I actually think Vlad can be a solid starter at RG when BMoore decides to hang it up, or we decide to part ways....He was in over his head at RT and the coaching staff realized it.....
