Virginia Tech QB Jerod Evans' stock rising
Virginia Tech dual-threat quarterback Jerod Evans' draft stock is on the rise. Evans is flying under the media radar, but has drawn considerable interest from several NFL teams. That includes the Detroit Lions, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers, among others. Evans declined an offer from Texas A&M to sign with the Hokies. In his only season in Blacksburg, he completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 3,546 yards and 29 touchdowns against just eight interceptions. Evans rushed for 846 yards and a dozen scores. He started his career at Air Force, but injured his knee and transferred to Trinity Valley Junior College before signing with Virginia Tech.
