Darren Evans scouting report

Darren Evans RB Scouting Report
Ht: 6’0″

Wt: 227

Strengths:
Great overall size. Plays faster than his timed speed. Quick feet; capable of making people miss. Big enough to break some tackles. Extremely productive college running back when healthy.
Weaknesses:
Missed entire 2009 season with a torn ACL. Lacks elite breakaway speed. Some experience as a receiver, but does not have very reliable hands.
Comments:
Evans was dominant as a freshman in 2008, rushing for over 1,200 yards but his career was derailed when he missed the entire 2009 season. Upon returning in 2010 he was forced to split carries with Ryan Williams. While teams may be concerned with his knee, he looked very good in limited playing time in 2010 and should only improve as his knee continues to get closer to 100%. He could be a valuable late-round pick.
