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 a decent 534 yards on 81 attempts for an elite 6.6 yards per carry, with 6 TDs, with one fumble. As a receiver he made only 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 a decent 518 yards on 83 carries for an elite 6.2 ypc, with 6 TDs, with 3 fumbles. In the passing game he pulled in only 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.
