Rashaan Evans

Rashaan Evans is coming into form.

 

The first-round pick has really stepped up his game.

 

When the Titans drafted inside linebacker Rashaan Evans in the first round of this year’s draft, there were pretty high expectations for this Titans’ defensive front. But with injuries limiting his impact in the first half of the season, things went south for Evans.

Thankfully, that seems to be out of the picture, as Evans has gradually gotten better through the season’s progression. It’s tough to take anything away from tackle stats, as they can boil down to where the play ended. Still, Evans has 40 tackles in his rookie season, with 18 in his last three games.

Again there’s nothing we can take away from tackles, but I’ll say this: Evans looks more and more like a key part of this Titans defense, showing up in a big way in the team’s wins against the Jets and Jaguars. So with that in mind, let’s dive into what stands out about Rashaan Evans’ rookie season.

It took him a while to get up to speed after missing most of training camp, be he looked as good as expected by the end of the season. I look forward to seeing him being a standout on D.

Yup.  He was pretty much lost for the first few games, but started hitting his stride around midseason and improved steadily.   Evans is gonna be a huge problem for a lot of teams.

 

Lest we forget....Henry's 99-yard TD run wouldn't have happened had it not been for Evans' play on 4th and goalshooting the gap and hitting Fournette in the backfield.

Placeholder reply.

Original reply was infected with stupid.

We're working with tech support to resolve the issue.

 

Thank you for your patience.

Man that game was so damn fun to be at.

EOY he turned up. Really hoping he puts it all together this year too. Gonna be interesting to see the competition develop between these linebackers. They have the potential to be special. 

 

Our team right now reminds me of the Ravens 2012.

He gives us that thumper at middle linebacker we haven't had in years in a smaller and more agile package then you usually see from the position.

That Fournette tackle was the thing of HOF players.  He's still getting accustomed to the position, yet he was grading as well as a run defender as anyone in the league at the end of the season.  He's got Patrick Willis ability IMO.  That physically and athleticism isn't all that common.

Thats a pretty good comparison.

The first gif is awesome. He literally bulldozed his own tackle to get the RB. He blew him up. The guy is hungry and wants to feast.

My favorite play from him was when he blew up the Patriots FB and then laid out the RB at the LOS at the goal line. That was the play when I knew we had something special in the guy. For his size he lays wood on any and everyone in his way.
