In 2014, a prospect with a family history draped in orange and blue decided to etch his name in crimson and white.

Auburn native Rashaan Evans chose to sign with the Crimson Tide over his hometown Tigers. He was considered one of the top linebackers in the 2014 recruiting class and a Parade and MaxPreps All-American out of Auburn High School.

Over the course of the next four seasons, Evans racked up 137 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and 14 sacks while helping Alabama achieve two national titles and three SEC championships.

In his senior season, the Auburn native recorded 74 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and six sacks en route to First Team All-SEC and All-American honors.

Prior to his trip to the 2018 NFL Combine, Rashaan Evans detailed his expectations for the week at the combine, the assistance that he is receiving from agent Drew Rosenhaus, the goals that he is looking to achieve during various events at the combine, the approach that he is taking for the combine including interviews with personnel from NFL teams and whether he has an idea of teams that could be interested in him on The Gary Harris Show.

One of the important areas that Evans mentions is his mindset for the combine. Concerning his mindset, he elaborates on how his focus mentally can help him compete at a high level.

“For me, right now, it’s just really just the mindset, just going in there having a clear mindset and really just kind of doing what I’ve been doing and that’s competing at a high level.”  Evans said.

The NFL Combine lasts through March 5 from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
