Evans can impact the Tennessee Titans at the game’s most punishing position.
For no other reason other than the fear of running the NFL’s best running back into the ground. The Tennessee Titans must get more from their reserves at the position. Since 2016’s draft, when they took Derrick Henry in Round 2, the Titans have selected two tailbacks.
One isn’t on the team anymore (Khalfani Muhammad). The other is a third-rounder that they got out of Appalachian State, the five-foot-ten, 203-pound Darrynton Evans.
14 rushes for 54 yards, two receptions for 27 yards, and a receiving touchdown were the result of five regular-season games. Currently, the Titans also have Senorise Perry, Jeremy McNichols, and D’Onta Foreman on their running backs depth chart.
Sure, 2020 was a season marred by injury for the now second-year man Evans, but moving into 2021, the Titans need to be able to spell Henry sometimes. That has to be Evans’ and this coaching staff’s desire moving forward. They can’t have a repeat of last year where Evans never touched the ball more than ten times in any game that he played in.
