  • When at full speed his strength and physicality mean he can run straight over opponents. 
  • Is an intelligent instinctual runner
  • Displays good patience behind the line of scrimmage 


  • If he is to stay on an NFL field for all 3 downs then he needs to improve his ability to impact the passing game.
  • While he flashes ability as a receiver, he is rarely asked to impact the game in this way and teams will need to dig deep as to why that was.
  • He also needs to clean up his pass-protection skills. He has the build and the frame but he needs to read and anticipate better


Zach Evans is a well-rounded back who does everything to a good standard. He has extremely good vision, strength and burst but he needs to add to his passing down resume, developing his pass protection anf getting more reps as a receiver to show NFL teams he can be a 3 down back. Evans is a promising prospect who now needs to show he can put all his traits together.
