Scouting Report
A powerfully built receiver, Evans was highly recruited out of high school and chose Notre Dame, playing one season there before transferring to UCLA. He delivered on some of that promise his last two seasons with the Bruins, totaling 1,586 yards and 12 touchdowns - nine of which came in 2013. However, his reception and yardage total as a senior dropped from the previous year and a lack of consistency has been perhaps the biggest knock on him. Evans, though, is considered to be a hard worker who strives to get better and has good hands that allow him to make difficult catches. He excels at winning 50-50 balls in traffic, using his size and strength to come away with the reception. He turned in a solid combine performance, though his lack of top-end speed was apparent as he ran a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash. Evans, though, won't be drafted as a stretch-the-field receiver, and his success in the NFL will hinge on his ability to make tough catches over the middle and getting open underneath the defense. His strong and physical route-running and quickness should boost his stock, and he's solid in downfield blocking - a sought-after commodity in receivers in the NFL. He could carve out a career as a possession receiver that makes big third-down receptions.
