Draft Profile: Bio
Tiyon Evans from Hartsville High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Evans joined Tennessee.

In 2021 as a freshman Evans saw action in 7 games for the Volunteers as he ran for 534 yards on 81 attempts for an outstanding 6.6 yards per carry, with 6 TDs, with one fumble. As a receiver he made just 5 receptions for 77 yards.

After the season Evans transferred to Louisville where as a sophomore in 2022 he played in 8 games. and rushed for 518 yards on 83 carries for an outstanding 6.2 ypc, with 6 TDs, with 3 fumbles. In the passing game he pulled in just 6 receptions for 13 yards.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s a natural pass catcher, at his best pulling in swing passes and heading upfield. He’s a natural in the screen game as well. His hands are good enough that Evans can line up in the slot.
  • He’s capable as a receiver, a weapon on swing passes and in the screen game.
  • Evans is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • His stop-start ability in traffic, exceptional balance, lateral agility and body control allow him to squeeze out chunks of yardage when it appears that nothing is there.
  • He’s at his best working in space, showing the quickness and vision of a return specialist. His stop-start ability allows him to create initial separation.
  • His initial burst is excellent, and he’s capable of running out of a traditional setup or taking the ball lined up next to a quarterback in shotgun.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • His playing speed is less than elite. Evans won’t run past defenders like Evans did at the college level.
  • He has a slight build, especially for a running back, and he isn’t going to grind out yardage between the tackles, as he lacks power and runs with a fairly high pad level.
  • Evans has constantly ran a limited route tree.

*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.
