Overview:

Evans was very productive in his only year at Virginia Tech, completing 286 passes, for 3552 yards, along with 29 touchdowns, and just 8 interceptions. He has good size, good speed, is very mobile, very accurate, has a strong arm, and a good deep ball. He is also very athletic, he is tough to take down when running with the ball, and makes something out of nothing thanks to his legs, and speed. But like mentioned, he only has 1 year at VA Tech, which happens to be his only year at the FBS level. I expect Evans to be picked somewhere between rounds 4 and 5 when it is all said and done, mainly due to only playing 1 season at the FBS level.
