Evans nailed down a starting spot at right guard in training camp, as the aggressive young lineman turned heads upon his arrival with his maturity, work ethic and physical play. He became a fixture in the lineup and opened all 16 regular-season games and both playoff contests. A left tackle in college, Evans immediately took over at right guard and made a seamless transition despite his inexperience. In a season where Saints’ rookies made headlines on a weekly basis with their outstanding play, Evans was the lone first-year player to start all 16 games, and his blocking was part of an offensive line that paved the way for the club’s No. 1-ranked offense to average 391.5 yards per contest. Polished in pass protection and rugged when opening holes for the rushing attack, Evans is expected to be part of the foundation of the unit for years to come.

I went back and watched about 5 games of Evans playing right guard for the Saints this year. He is just a great player; he displays excellent technique, great knee bend, uses his hands well, good balance and has a nasty punch out of his stance. If you watched the 2006 playoff game against the Eagles, most of Deuce McAllister's long runs were behind punishing Jahri Evans blocks. Deuce ran for 143 yards with a 6.8 yards per carry average and 1 TD. The 6 foot 4 inch, 318 pound Evans was probably the top prospect coming out of Division II for the 2006 NFL Draft, but still lasted until the 4th round. The Saints got quite a steal.

I'm sorry, but players that aren't good don't start every game on a team that makes it to their conference finals. Saints fans think this guy is one of the best up-and-coming OGs in the league, and Mario absolutely devastated him. Mario beat the RT, came around the edge, Evans tried to get underneath Williams, and Mario just blasted him. It was great.
