How does Zach Evans compare with TDP, Emery?
Will he be playing a lot with all the talent at RB? What kind of talent does he bring? So excited were going to be LOADED at RB next year

Never compare your RBs with each other. Just as you don't compare your kids.

EVALUATED 11/02/2018 Gabe Brooks MIDLANDS REGION RECRUITING ANALYST PROJECTION First Round COMPARISON Melvin Gordon LOS ANGELES CHARGERS Evaluation Dynamically athletic running back with prototype size and frame potential relative to the position. Owns college-ready build with frame space to add more bulk. Flashes elite athleticism verified in combine testing environment. Makes it look easy, sometimes to the point that it's deceptive. Shows great top-end speed and outstanding close-quarters lateral mobility confirmed by a 3.91 shuttle. Flashes devastating start-stop-start ability in close quarters, coupled with impressive hesitation stutter. Effortlessly strings moves together in the open field to elude multiple defenders. Chameleon in ability to alter running styles, going from elusive darter to hole-punching, straight-line galloper. Home run hitter with high-volume capability. Patient and presses the line of scrimmage to set up blocks. Size and strength potential could provide high ceiling in blitz pickup. At times dances in the backfield rather than accelerating through the hole. Sometimes an upright runner who presents a bigger target. Does not always finish runs with expected strength. Will try to bounce runs too often. Could get on the field immediately at high-major level and become a Power 5 star, in addition to first-round NFL Draft ceiling.

It's hard to judge from highlight films, but the closest "great" LSU back he reminds me of is Charles Alexander. Smooth.

Honestly, Saquon Barkley might be a better comp with the speed, quickness, and strength combination. He’s not as compact but the rest seems like a good comparison.

Walter Payton and Barry Sanders are really good comparisons.

Stop asking these people questions , nobody knew CEH would be what he is today. They can’t predict the future. Most said emery would be starting now but as of today he is the least used

Yeah, it doesn't look like he's trying very hard even though he is blowing by opposing players. I'd question if he was just a supremely gifted athlete playing against sub-par competition, but they play in the highest class in TX.

If there is a "knock", it's that he doesn't appear to have great sudden lateral movement or vision the likes of CEH or Guice. If I had to compare him to one of LSU's current backs I think I'd say he's more like TDP than Emery

He runs hard and smooth. The Saquon comp is good IMO

He competes in the very competitive 6A division in Houston, which, is loaded with FBS talent and in his recruiting videos he's jogging past DBs. He'll be the starter if he can learn the playbook, end of story.

Yes. Twice in the video I watched. Which means he maxes out well over that. Dude is a beast.

He looks like Emery with a college ready body.

Evans makes it look effortless. In a lot of his highlight videos, it looks like he’s almost jogging until you realize he’s pulling away from people. He also has ridiculous lower body strength and balance. Like another poster said, he’s the best running back out of Texas since Adrian Peterson.
