NFL Draft 2015: Randall Evans is a "workhorse with a high motor"

"Evans brings several strengths. He's a fantastic double-duty corner, and he's also perfectly capable of playing at free safety. He's solid against the run and the pass, and does a great job reading the quarterback; most of his interceptions have been the result of perfect reads and route-jumping. He also finishes well; in the midst of a defense that we sometimes criticized for poor tackling, Evans almost never got called out for it. The Eagles, desperate for help in the defensive backfield, appear to have gone after someone who can be dependable rather than astonishing. Don't take that as selling Evans short; it's a compliment."
