The Alabama Crimson Tide have yet another player off the board!

Star linebacker Rashaan Evans is headed up to Nashville, as the Tennessee Titans selected Evans with the 22nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

While in Tuscaloosa, Evans was nothing short of spectacular. He amassed 150 total tackles in four years with the Tide. In addition, he picked up 15 sacks, with a career-high 6 in his senior season. He also put up three passes defended, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and 13 TFL in his final year in crimson and white.

He is a terrific pass rusher as an inside linebacker, who should bring a heavy presence on the Titans defense once he suits up.

Congrats to Rashaan Evans and best of luck to him in Tennessee!
