Former Hokie QB Jerod Evans hoping to stick with Philadelphia
- A one-year starter at Virginia Tech, Evans has good size (6-foot-3 and 232 pounds) but is very raw as a prospect. A number of scouts believed he would have been best served returning to school to improve his game.
- Evans possesses intriguing tools to work with as his 52.0 adjusted completion percentage on deep passes ranked him sixth among draft-eligible quarterbacks.
- During his final year in college, the signal-caller attempted 75 deep passes, completing 34 of them for 1043 yards and eight touchdowns.
- Despite the Eagles and their coaching staff’s history of running a West Coast offense, the team is looking to stretch the field more in the future. This could give Evans an opportunity to compete for a roster spot as a long-term quarterback project.
- At the moment, his primary competition will come from recent free agent signee Matt McGloin. The former Oakland Raider has played only 104 snaps during the last three seasons.
