Psychic Gibbon Posted March 29, 2013 Share Posted March 29, 2013 (edited) Very well rounded as he can play in off man, press man, and cover and be comfortable. Fluid for a CB of his size. Plays against the run well and can command outside blocks to make the rusher hesitate and can get off his blocks. Does a good job of sticking to his man and keeping his eye on the QB. Has good hands which means he's a threat to get a turnover and not to just deflect the pass. Needs his technique polished up, however, but that means there is upside left to go along with being an instant starter. Very athletic but raw, but is tenacious and high motor. Has a habit of attempting to run around OTs in a wide loop which sometimes ends in him getting pushed out of the play but has shown signs of some pass rush moves, namely a quick speed rush which shows he can bend well and a spin move which he should use more often. He'll need a year or two of coaching up, namely in hand use, before starting but the potential is clearly there. He had a dip in production in 2012 but the front office has shown it is willing to look at better tape in previous years and get the player at optimum value (eg. William Moore, Jonathan Massaquoi). Has experience as both a 3-4 and 4-3 OLB and plays both well, basically being a poor man's Von Miller. Despite his relatively small size for the position he can hold his own against OGs and even generate some push against them. He's a three down player. Tape focusing on him is impossible to find, so focus on #67 here. Very high upside but he should have stayed in school for another season to polish up his technique, but instead he'll provide a team with good value in the mid rounds. Good pass blocker, generates push for the run, and can block well on the move for screens. They have been looking at safeties a good deal this offseason so it is possible they're looking for one to more effectively run the 5 DB formations and have a better backup for Moore. Evans is well rounded as he can play the run well, play zone, and man up. However, he's a 'get what you see' player as he doesn't have much upside left. Seems like a bit of a tweener. Strong and relentless. Can pressure the QB even when getting double blocked, but he doesn't do it on a regular basis, and is difficult to move from his point of attack, more often than not. He'd be best off adding 10-15 lbs of bulk and becoming an NT, similar to what they're doing with Robertson. This kid is going to be a late round gem.

He isn't very productive and can be effectively replaced by James, who I think has the ability to become a starter down the line, in this scenario.This defense is going to be nuts.
