As a sophomore in 2022 he played 7 games In pass protection he gave up 2 pressures and no sacks.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Evans is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • A fluid mover capable of creating some separation over the middle of the field, Evans has the long arms and soft hands to provide a sizable catch radius.
  • He has a tapered build and strong hands, ripping the ball back with ease when defensive backs manage to get a hold of it.
  • He’s very good in contested-catch situations, using his frame effectively to make plays facing the quarterback. Evans also shows a knack for high-pointing the ball, consistently outmuscling defensive backs.
  • Good effort at the point of attack and second level as a blocker. Intelligent and will quickly acclimate to an NFL offense.
  • He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and he shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Evans really isn’t a burner and doesn’t have elite suddenness, which is problematic considering his average size.
  • Evans lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, Evans isn’t great on contested catches.
  • He’ll give enough effort to get in the way, but because he doesn’t get any push in the run game, he won’t be used in-line early in his career.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
