Buccaneers selected Texas A&M WR Mike Evans with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Evans (6-foot-4 3/4, 231) left A&M following his redshirt sophomore year after posting a combined 151-2,499-16.5-17 stat line across two seasons. He'll be a 21-year-old rookie. Johnny Manziel's go-to guy, Evans relentlessly made contested catches in heavy traffic in the SEC, and has field-stretching speed (4.53), incredibly long arms (35 1/8"), and a 37-inch vertical. A standout youth basketball player who averaged 18.3 points per game as a senior at Galveston (TX) high, Evans' natural ball skills are the best in this draft. Also a strong run blocker, Evans is most commonly compared to new teammate Vincent Jackson. He offers WR1 potential in Dynasty leagues and could flirt with double-digit TDs as a rookie. He'll be a Week 1 starter. May 8 - 9:00 PM

Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports that even though the Browns like Texas A & M QB Johnny Manziel, the Browns prefer Texas A & M WR Mike Evans at the No. 4 spot.

"I’m told while the Cleveland Browns like Manziel they don’t like him enough to use the fourth pick of the draft on him. The name that continues to pop up for the franchise at that selection is receiver Mike Evans," Pauline wrote. For sometime now, evaluators have had the Browns as the potential landing spot for Clemson's Sammy Watkins. Our own Josh Norris has had Mike Evans going to the Browns at the No. 4 since mid April.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans has flown up draft boards over the past week, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer.

Glazer, it should be clarified, is talking about draft boards within the league, as opposed to the media. Evans could go as high as No. 4 to Cleveland, as CBS Sports' Dane Brugler first reported last week. Numerous teams have also kicked around the idea of trading up for him, including Buffalo, Detroit and San Francisco. Don't be surprised if he goes in the top five.

ESPN's John Clayton believes "if the price isn't too expensive, the Detroit Lions would like to move up a few spots" to draft Texas A&M WR Mike Evans.

With the Lions sitting at the No.10 spot, they may have to move up to the No.3 spot to secure the right to draft Evans. Some evaluators believe Evans could be higher on the Browns board than WR Sammy Watkins sitting at the No.4 spot. Our own Josh Norris seconds that emotion, and has Mike Evans slated to the Browns at No. 4 in his latest mock draft.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports that there's a "real possibility" the Browns select Texas A&M WR Mike Evans at No. 4 overall.

It would be a tough pill to swallow for Cleveland if Clemson's Sammie Watkins gets gobbled up at No. 2 or 3, and it's possible they'll reach a bit for Evans. But it's not as though the selection would be panned -- Evans is universally regarded as a top 10 talent, and most mocks have him going No. 5 to Oakland or No. 7 to Tampa Bay. Josh Norris lines up with Brugler, slotting Evans to the Browns in his most recent mock.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's beat writer Gerry Dulac writes that the Steelers will take Texas A&M's Mike Evans if he's available at No. 15.

"Believe me, if Mike Evans is available, they will draft him," writes Dulac. "But they do not expect him to be there at 15." Any beat writer of a non-top 10 team perhaps could have written the same, as a hypothetical Evans slide would demand action by any team sitting below the Lions at No. 10 (Detroit would rejoice if Evans was still there). Dulac also wrote that the club will consider FSU's Kelvin Benjamin at No. 15. If they are desperate enough for a big WR that they'll reach for the Seminole, perhaps they'll instead be motivated to package a few of their nine picks to make a move up the board for Evans.

WGR 550 Buffalo reports that Texas A&M WR Mike Evans had a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday.

With the Bills holding the No. 9 pick in the draft, it's a possibility that Evans could be gone by their selection. The Bucs at No.7, could possibly pull the trigger on the 6-foot-5, 231 pound pass catcher if he's sitting there. The Bills have also brought in WR Odell Beckham of LSU, as well as WR Cody Latimer of Indiana. Beckham is projected to go in the middle of the first round and Latimer could be had in the second round. Our own Josh Norris has the Cleveland Browns selecting Mike Evans at No. 4 in his latest mock draft.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans will visit with the Jets.

New York has already hosted first-round WR prospects Odell Beckham Jr., Marqise Lee, and Brandin Cooks, and now it will bring in one of the draft's two elite WR prospects. The Jets have zero chance of landing Evans at No. 18; they'd need to deal into the top 10 to make it happen.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans compared his playing style to Brandon Marshall's.

"I get a lot of Vincent Jackson comparisons, and that's a great comparison," Evans said. "But I think Brandon Marshall. He's vicious after the catch. A big, physical guy, can go up and get it, blocks real well. So I've modeled my game after him since high school." Evans (6-foot-5, 231 pounds) is bigger than the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Marshall. NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks both project Evans to the Buccaneers with the No. 7 overall pick in their mock drafts.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes the Buffalo Bills should move up ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to draft Texas A&M WR Mike Evans.

"I have Evans going to the Bills at No. 9 in my most recent mock draft, but given the buzz around the Texas A&M wide receiver right now, waiting for him at No. 9 might be a recipe to miss out on landing him," Davis wrote. While Clemson WR Sammy Watkins should be gone by the No.4 selection, the next potential landing spot for a WR could be the Bucs No.7 spot. The Bills would possibly have to move in front of the Bucs, to ensure landing Evans. With Lovie Smith signing journeyman Josh McCown to start under center, for Bill's sake, he could also be looking for a future signal caller. Our own Josh Norris has the Cleveland Browns selecting Mike Evans at No. 4 with Sammy Watkins going at No.3 to the Jaguars. The question is, are the Bills going to sit tight and be willing to gamble?

The Eagles will target a large, speedy wide receiver early in the NFL Draft, speculates the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

"What's your ability to get open in one-on-one coverage, because we see a ton of it," Eagles coach Chip Kelly recently said when asked what his top priority is in searching for a wide receiver. Philly's boss also explicitly stated he's looking for size and speed. Texas A&M WR Mike Evans possesses both, but he'll be long gone by No. 22. Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin could be a good fit at that point. If they wait until the second round, Penn State's Allen Robinson, Clemson's Martavis Bryant or Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief will all hold intrigue. The Eagles own the 54th overall pick.
Apr 12 - 8:43 PM

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that "three teams are the frontrunners to make some sort of move" for Texas A&M WR Mike Evans.

"If the St Louis Rams trade out of the second spot, and they will make every effort to do as much, Evans would be a target assuming they stay in the top ten," Pauline wrote. "Two teams selecting in the middle of the first frame who are very high on Evans and would consider trading up to grab him are the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens." All three teams are desperate for a play making receiver like Evans to add to the mix. However, the Rams have the best opportunity to move back in the draft and make something happen with the No.2 and No.13 selections. Both the Eagles and Ravens would have to give up quality draft picks in order to move up and grab Evans.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans is visiting the Jaguars on Wednesday, according to Fox Sports' Peter Schrager.

Evans joins a number of names, including Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, for the visit on Wednesday. Some teams choose to bring in a bunch of prospects at once, with one goal to be how they handle themselves in a group or social setting. It is worth noting that reports have stated that some teams prefer Evans over Sammy Watkins, but we doubt the Browns are one.
Apr 9 - 10:18 AM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Texas A&M WR Mike Evans to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 7 is more likely to happen after Mike Williams was traded to the Bills.

"WR Mike Evans to the Buccaneers at 7 just became much more likely," Brugler tweeted. Now that WR Mike Williams has been traded to the Buffalo Bills, it leaves a hole across the way from from Vincent Jackson. Mike Evans would definitely be an upgrade to the WR unit and would provide McCown with two big body receivers, similar to what he had in Chicago with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. The Bucs now look like a ideal landing spot for Mike Evans services at No. 7.
Apr 4 - 12:18 PM

NFL insider Adam Caplan says a trade up for Texas A&M WR Mike Evans is on the Eagles' radar.

Caplan also notes Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks is a possibility. The "target area for Brandin Cooks: 20-32 in first," Caplan tweeted. "Everything checks out well with him -- character, tape, speed." We think Odell Beckham Jr. would be an even better fit thanks to his contested catch ability, but he is less likely to be there.
