Chris Evans 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Name: Chris Evans Position: Running Back College: Michigan Height: 5’10 ⅞” Weight: 219 lbs Overall Rank: No. 202 overall Position Rank: RB16 Strengths: Michigan’s Chris Evans burst onto the scene in Ann Arbor. In his first two years at Michigan, he posted 7 and 5.1 yards per carry, respectively. Evans is well-built with an ideal frame that can pack some downhill power. He has long-arms and massive hands, with the receiving ability to snag targets outside of his frame. Evans is an impressive receiver out of the backfield and could offer positional versatility that secures him a low-end roster spot in Year 1. Given his receiving ability, it’s possible some teams look to move him there long-term as offensive positions become more fluid. Evans is a fundamentally sound runner that drops his pad level to get the ugly yards inside in the box. He doesn’t have a true trait as a runner to hang his hat on but he’s functional in all regards and can be a rotational player that doesn’t waste time getting downhill with the ball in his hands.
