Jahri's NFL CAREER


Jahri Evans is a key figure in an offensive line that has ranked among the NFL’s best units since 2006 and surrendered the fewest sacks in the league over the last three years. An immediate starter since being drafted in the fourth round in 2006, Evans has gone from being a little-known rookie from a small school to an established veteran now considered one of the NFL’s top right guards. He has made the rapid ascent because of his maturity, work ethic and ability – with strengths that include both polished pass-protection skills and powerful run blocking. Another of his qualities has been dependability, as Evans has started all 64 games of his NFL career.
