Cowboys Sign Baylor Fullback

Jonathan Evans signs with the Cowboys.

Jonathan Evans School: Baylor
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 242 40: 4.79 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Became a full-time starter as a senior after sporadically playing with the first team the prior two seasons. Carried the ball just six times for eight yards last year after career numbers of 25/65/1 as junior.

Positives: Well-sized lead fullback best as a blocker. Aggressive, faces up into opponents and jolts them at the point of attack. Solid position blocker who displays vision and accelerates into defenders. Punishing runner when handed the ball. Solid hands out of the backfield and adequate speed for his position.

Negatives: Only average blocking strength and has difficulty moving linebackers off the ball. Seemingly tentative at times.

Analysis: A hard-working prospect with solid size/speed numbers for the fullback position, Evans needs to improve his playing strength and learn to finish blocks. Offers an upside, yet needs reps and more experience.
