Zach Evans

22-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Although he was three picks away from falling to the seventh round of this year's draft, Evans is a former blue-chip recruit who consistently produced at TCU and Mississippi. He was outdone by Kendre Miller at TCU and Quinshon Judkins at Mississippi, but there's no shame in getting outplayed by two potential NFL standouts. Evans' career rushing stats (1,999 yards and 18 touchdowns at 6.9 YPC) were consistently efficient on modest volume, which should make him a good off-the-bench runner in the NFL, at worst. His athletic testing was mediocre, with his 4.51 pro day 40 at 5-11, 208, indicating size-adjusted speed below starter quality, so his ceiling might be that of a good backup. But he is the Rams' best pure runner after Cam Akers, which puts him in the mix for touches. Read Past Outlooks

The Rams selected Evans in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 215th overall
Evans was a high level recruit at TCU before transferring to Mississippi, but he was the best running back at neither school, outdone by Kendre Miller at TCU and Quinshon Judkins at Mississippi. Evans consistently produced as a runner despite the modest volume, finishing his three-year career with 1,999 yards and 18 touchdowns rushing on 290 attempts (6.9 YPC). Evans therefore seems to have some amount of innate running ability, but the problem is his poor volume is compounded by mediocre athletic testing. At 5-foot-11, 208 pounds Evans ran a 4.51-second pro day 40, a time that might translate to something closer to a 4.60 at the combine. Evans is someone to monitor closely because of his recruiting pedigree and consistently explosive rushing production, but it's not easy to see how he'll earn immediate playing time with the Rams.
