Strong Points

Great size to go along with very good athletic ability and speed for a man his size. Has an extremely strong arm. Shows he can throw with touch or drive the ball. Has good accuracy and ball placement. Very good ability to avoid pass rushers and make plays with his feet.

Weak Points

A junior college transfer who has only played one year of major college football. Does not go through a full progression and often throws to his first read. Almost never see him go to a third option. The Virginia Tech offense is a fairly simple spread offense. Doesn't call audibles.

The Way We See It

While Evans is physically talented, I don't know why he came out. He has very limited experience at the major college level and that experience is in an easy-read spread offense. While Evans has the physical tools to play, he is a long ways away from being ready to play in the NFL. Will need a lot of time to learn the nuances of an NFL offense and go through a full-field progression. His physical traits may get him drafted higher than he deserves. Hit or miss guy. Interviews at Combine and private workouts will be very important.
