He was picked as one of the team captains, earned First Team All-SEC from the Associated Press, named to the All-SEC second team by the conference coaches and was an All-American selection by the American Football Coaches Association.

Evans is a rangy player who can work well out of a 3-4 and pass rush from a 4-3 scheme.

The Titans have five more picks in rounds 2-7 of the NFL draft. Round 2 selection begins on Friday night.
