CB Akayleb Evans

Missouri | RS Senior | Round 4, Pick 118

Evans was a part-time starter at Tulsa for four years before transferring to Missouri for the 2021 season. The all-district pick at McKinney High School in Texas took off his redshirt season in 2017 to start six of nine appearances (26 tackles, two pass breakups). Evans missed three games due to injury in 2018 (21 tackles, four pass breakups, five starts in nine contests) and redshirted in 2019 after three starts with a shoulder injury (six tackles, two pass breakups). He stayed healthy throughout 2020 and started all nine games (29 tackles, 1.5 for loss, three pass breakups). Evans started eight of 11 appearances in his only year in Columbia, intercepting one pass, breaking up six others and posting 29 tackles, two forced fumbles, before opting out of the team's bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft. -- by Chad Reuter,
