Hot Take Friday: Jerod Evans is a top 3 quarterback
After parting ways with Gabriel Cunningham, the Fehérvár Enthroners found a new signal caller quite fast. Former Virginia Tech standout Jerod Evans will lead the Hungarian franchise into its first season in the European League of Football.
Evans has probably the best resume in the whole league. After excelling at the JuCo level for two years, the dual-threat quarterback transferred to Virginia Tech for the 2016 season, where he played on a historical level. With more than 3,500 passing yards, 29 passing touchdowns and an additional 846 yards and 12 scores on the ground, the Texas native led his team to a 10-4 record, an ACC championship appearance and a 24-point comeback Bowl game victory.
After breaking eight school records and winning the ACC Newcomer of the Year award, Evans declared for the 2017 NFL Draft but was not selected. He spent the 2017 NFL season with the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers, before playing a few years of Arena Football and a season in Japan.

Why will he be great?
But why am I still so confident in this guy? Well, first of all he has everything a quarterback needs to be great. Being 1,94 m tall, Evans has the perfect size to play quarterback. He has outstanding arm strength and offers deadly dual-threat abilities. Additionally, he showed that he can perform under pressure, as he did against elite competition in one of the best conferences in college football. Evans has been consistently playing football over the past few years and is not only offering a lot of talent but plenty of experience, too. I believe that he is one of the three best players at his position in the European League of Football.
