    The drafting of Rice means this may very well be the plan.

    But, and someone should be able to explain this to me - my summary of Evans is that he;

    - Is strong stuffing the run by shooting a hole up the middle
    - Is rubbish in coverage
    - Is good at goal line stops

    What about the above suggests he might be a half decent pass rusher?

    It is a mystery to me why Evans isn't a better blitzer because as you say he can time up the snap and shoot the gaps better than anyone in short yardage situations.

    He did it in college but we used Evans as a pass rusher last year. I’m not sure why people keep forgetting that. It wasn’t a huge sample but he definitely was on the edge rushing the passer.
