Darrynton Evans
21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
With Derrick Henry entrenched atop the depth chart, the Titans didn't exactly have a pressing need at running back, but they still saw enough in Evans to nab him late in the third round of this year's draft. An explosive, elusive runner, Evans can change direction on a dime and is a home-run threat once he gets some green around him. His smaller frame and lack of power could make him ineffective between the tackles, but that's Henry's domain anyway, so it shouldn't be a big issue in Tennessee. Evans also gives good effort in pass protection and is useful enough as an outlet receiver, so he should be able to take on the passing-down role previously filled by Dion Lewis. Should anything happen to Henry, however, Evans has the skills to make a big impact as a three-down option, even if he might need someone else to take on short-yardage work. Read Past Outlooks
Tennessee snags in third round
RBTennessee Titans
April 24, 2020
The Titans selected Evans in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 93rd overall.
Evans is perhaps the most explosive running back in this draft, though his 4.41-second speed comes at the expense of his frame, which is rather thin at 5-foot-10, 203 pounds. That shouldn't matter too much in Tennessee, though, because Derrick Henry's presence leaves only a change-of-pace role for Evans anyway. The Appalachian State standout should prove useful insurance behind Henry, and as a helpful firecracker off the bench otherwise.
