I don't know. I may be wrong here but I think he's a NT prospect. By the way do you like any of our picks today? You've been a bit cranky today hehe.

Dolphins | Team showing a lot of interest in F. Evans

Bart Isley, of the Daily Record, reports the Miami Dolphins are showing a lot of interest in Texas State DT Fred Evans. Evans, at 6-foot-5 307 pounds, projects mostly as a defensive tackle, but some teams have discussed using him at defensive end in either the 3-4 or goaline alignments. The Miami Dolphins showed a lot of interest in Evans in the days leading up to the NFL Draft, bringing him to Miami to tour their facilities and meet with head coach Nick Saban.

Thursday, July 14, 2005
CHICAGO - Texas State defensive tackle Fred Evans was named to the first team while Bobcat punter Cory Elolf was tabbed for the second squad as I-AA.org's Preseason All-America Team was released Thursday.
Evans, who as a second-team selection on The Sports Network's Division I-AA Preseason All-America Team released last week, is coming off a junior season in which he led the Southland Conference with 6.5 quarterback sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss. He was named the SLC's Newcomer of the Year.
The senior from Chicago had 33 tackles--26 solo stops and 14 assists--in his first season at Texas State after transferring from College of Dupage. He also had five quarterback hurries, forced a fumble and broke up a pass during his junior year.
Elolf is coming off a junior season in which he was named to the American Football Coaches Association's Division I-AA Coaches All-America team. He averaged 41.9 yards per punt with 10 of his 54 punts going for 50+ yards. The Converse native is a two-time All-Southland Conference First-Team selection.
Texas State was one of just 19 schools in Division I-AA to have multiple selections on I-AA.org's Preseason All-America Team.
I-AA.org was launched in 2001 as a news service for individuals, organizations and broadcasters seeking information about Division I-AA college football. At its website, I-AA.org presents official I-AA collegiate news from conferences and institutions and provides additional coverage and commentary through aa national staff of columnists and correspondents.
Texas State opens the 2005 season Sept. 3 when the Bobcats play host to Delta State.

Alright! Texas State! (It's where I go to school) I got to see him live quite a bit but guy has got all the tools and raw skill to develop into a player in the league. My homer-ism aside, I like the pick. Very good value at the pick #.

I watched him play once on ESPN and he caught my eye, don't know much else about him though. I think if Saban sees something in him, he knows more about him than I do.

You have to like 11.5 sacks the last 2 seasons from the tackle position.

Yea...you are probably right..Saban just felt like using this pick on someone he knew would not make the team. You probably have alot more insight into Evans than Saban and the Dolphins do. They have probably only saw more film of him than you could possibly imagine, probably interviewed him face to face...talked to his coaches...his family. Talked to a 100 scouts...his own coaching staff...other teams thoughts on him..and then said..lets just waste this pick. There is that guy on the internet who has a better idea of who we should pick. :shakeno:

Here's one scouting report on him:

Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 290 40: 5.30 Year: 5Sr

Bio: All-Conference and All-America selection, posting 55/18/5 last year and 40/17.5/6.5 as a junior.

Pos: Hard-working, developing prospect with a decent upside. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and clogs the middle. Holds the point against blocks, keeps his feet driving up the field and possesses a burst of closing speed.

Neg: Best in a straight line and significantly slows down changing direction. Must improve his hand technique and protect himself. Not instinctive and slow locating the ball.

Analysis: A player who’s shown significant progress the past two seasons, Evans needs more bulk on his frame to complete the deal. Solid practice squad material.
