Under the radar, getting to know the players: Part 3 of 5:

Although they may not be a first round draft pick or someone that makes impact s, they still made the team. The National Football League has historically had some of the best athletes in the world. The Green Bay Packers themselves have a historic Franchise. Thirteen championships, four Super Bowl titles, and numerous NFC North/Central Championships make for one legendary franchise. These five under-the-radar players may still have something to prove, either to themselves and/or their critiques. Josh Hawkins, Trevor Davis, Marwin Evans, Kyle Murphy, Lucas Patrick are all players that strive to have a larger impact on the team.


Marwin Evans was born on April 10th, 1993, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He attended Oak Creek High school, and graduated in 2011. After he graduated high school, Evans then attended Rochester Community College in Rochester, Minnesota. From there, he transferred to Highland Community College where he was all conference in the JKACC. Finally, he transferred to Utah State, which is where the Packers found him. While at Utah State, Evans collected 83 tackles, 2 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 5 pass breakups, and 1 interception returned for a touchdown, which also was 90 yards. Knowing how important education was and still is, he graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Sociology, and a minor in criminal justice, similar to Packer’s safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.


Marwin knew that he had a shot of entering the National Football league. During his pro day at Utah State, he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, and a 42-inch vertical jump. In the same year that Marwin Evans ran a 4.47 40-yard dash on his pro day, Packer’s WR Trevor Davis ran a 4.42 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. Marwin Evans also played along side Packer’s LB Kyler Fackrell at Utah State. Fackrell was drafted in the third round by the Packers. Evans was not drafted, or even signed to a team right after the draft was over. He eventually was invited to a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks, but they chose not to sign him. The Packers signed Marwin Evans on May 10th, 2016 as an undrafted free agent. On making the team, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, talking about Marwin Evans said: “We need guys like that” and “He’s been doing a great job of being physical and playing fast. He wants to be a part of the team”. In 2016 with the Packers, Evans played in 16 games, recording a total of six tackles. With the Packers drafting defensive backs Kevin King and Josh Jones, Evans should look to fit right in to the Packer’s defense.
