Scouting Report

Evans rushed for 1,220 yards and 14 touchdowns last season and did so at the highest level of high school competition in Texas. As a running back, he has a tendency to bounce outside, even though he thrives more as a downhill runner operating between the tackles. Evans is less the type of back who is going to sprint down the sideline and more the type of back with an impressive initial burst and acceleration. He is no Mohamed Ibrahim in terms of his vision (at least not yet), but Evans reads blocks well and has flashed the patience and ability to press the line of scrimmage while a hole opens up. He seems like a solid addition to the running back room.
