Bengals linebackers coach Jim Haslett seemed excited about adding Evans, who seems to be a somewhat of a project. Haslett said Evans is not polished and needs to work on his run support, but he loved his four interceptions in his last season at Oklahoma, two of which went for touchdowns.
How he fits: Haslett said he liked Evans’ ability in coverage the most, so don’t expect to see him rushing the passer often. He will likely also play special teams to start his career. Evans is an athletic player who used to play defensive back in high school, which has probably aided in his coverage skills. He looks like someone the Bengals might bring along slowly.
