 — It’s easy to see/write-off Evans as a runner-passer fit for college and not the NFL. However, there is much more to consider here on his value at the next level. This was a an eyeopening study for us…


Current rankings of note…

CBS Sports (as of this publish date) #8 QB prospect, #192 overall

ESPN (as of this publish date) #n/a…not in top 12 among QB prospects, #n/a overall (not among top 320 overall)

The preeminent NFL Draft and Dynasty Rookie Draft scouting service – College Football has launched its sixth year of scouting analytics and detailed reports, rankings and coverage of all things NFL Draft…including the college all-star bowls, the NFL Combine, and the draft itself. Our analysis is like none other, designed to defy and confound the mainstream coverage – who else had David Johnson on par with Todd Gurley in 2015? Or Tyrell Williams as a top WR prospect in 2015? Or Jatavis Brown and Sean Davis as top defensive prospects in 2016? Who else railed against Laquon Treadwell and Jameis Winston from the jump in their draft years? What will we discover with our computer scouting models in 2017?

For a completely different scouting service, visit Originally designed for NFL personnel departments, it has become home to the high stakes dynasty and fantasy profiteers – come see why that one person in your league always finds all those players ahead of everyone else…or become that person.
