Drafted by the Titans in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft (93rd overall), Evans showed flashes of promise in his rookie season for the league’s top-ranked offense. After being placed on Injured Reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in the team’s 42-16 Week 4 beatdown of the Buffalo Bills, Evans got back into action late in the season to solidify himself as a solid backup to Henry heading into the 2021 season.

Overall, Evans rushed 14 times for 54 yards and caught two passes for 27 yards and a touchdown across five regular-season games for the Titans. He rushed for one yard in the Titans’ playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Evans played college football at Appalachian State, where he excelled as a kick returner. He was named the MVP of the 2018 Sun Belt Conference Football Championship Game after totaling 218 total yards. In 2019, Evans was the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Year with 24 touchdowns, a whopping 1,480 rushing yards, and 2,064 all-purpose yards. He was also named MVP of the 2019 New Orleans Bowl as well as the 2019 Sun Belt Conference Football Championship Game. He also had zero fumbles in 482 career carries, a school record.

Evans comes from an athletic family. His father, Darryl, was an All-American baseball player at Bethune-Cookman, his uncle played for the Philadelphia Phillies, and his mother was a track athlete.
