With the 148th in the 2013 OM NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...

Josh Evans, S, Florida

Strengths: Has a lean, athletic build with very long arms. Attacking mentality stands out on film. He isn't afraid to get physical and competes when the ball is in the air and after the catch, always attempting to rip it out of the ballcarrier's grasp. Attacks the line of scrimmage when he reads run or when allowed to blitz, which he did effectively in 2012, recording 2.5 sacks... Good balance and lateral agility to break down and make the effective open-field tackle or when avoiding backs as a pass rusher. Good flexibility and overall speed in coverage. His ability to cover over the top allowed Elam to roam and make big plays. Improved ball skills in 2012.

Weaknesses: A bit lean for the position and may not be as fluid with additional weight. Needs some work with his reaction quickness to trust what he sees. At times will take the safe route of making sure he makes the tackle, rather than going for the interception or pass breakup.

Compares To: Reshad Jones, FS, Miami Dolphins

Pick made at 10:08 PM EST. St. Louis (Rohirrim) is on the clock.
