Marvin Powell, one of the greatest linemen in USC history, passed away in October. He was 67.
Powell was an All-American in 1975 and 1976 and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. For some reason, he is not in the USC Hall of Fame.
Powell was a five-time Pro Bowl selection, three-time All-Pro and Jets Team MVP in 1979.
“Marvin was one of the best linemen I’ve ever seen,” said former Jets wide receiver Wesley Walker upon hearing of Powell’s passing. “He was just a physical specimen. He was just good. I just loved him.”
Powell was the No. 4 pick in the first round of the 1977 NFL Draft.
He is the only tackle to be selected MVP in the Jets’ first 62 seasons.
