Rookie linebacker Rashaan Evans has yet to play a game for the Tennessee Titans, but he’s already had a leadership role bestowed upon him by head coach Mike Vrabel.
According to Titans Online, Vrabel put Evans in charge of the rookies this off-season.
Basically, Evans is responsible for making sure his fellow rookies are where they need to be, when they need to be.
Vrabel gave Evans this task because he sees some incredible leadership skills in Evans.
For his part, Evans has fully embraced the role.
I embrace that role. And I know there’s a lot of guys in that group that can do the same thing.
The sample size is small right now, but I think the sky is the limit for Evans as a NFL player.
Evans just seems to be the total package. He has the off-the-field leadership skills that are necessary to be an impact linebacker in the NFL. And he has the on-the-field skills to be a dominant three-down linebacker.
To be honest, I feel like Evans has the potential to be the AFC version of Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.
If that ends up being the case, then Titans general manager Jon Robinson deserves a significant raise for landing such a talented player late in the first round.
