- When at full speed his strength and physicality mean he can run straight over opponents.

- 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.

- 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.
