Mike Evans has the best hands I've seen since Calvin Johnson.
Evans is a Top 10 pick and out of reach for us...sucks!!!!!
1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 64 323
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
I read today that after Manziel's pro-day where Evans was catching everything all over the field, some GM's have Evans ranked as the 1st overall receiver ahead of Watkins.
yeah, i'm not getting the hate on this guy.
its wishful thinking he's gonna slip to 15. i had questions about his speed watching some A & M games but he ran fast at the combine. everything else in his game screams stud to me. maybe not at the level of CJ (who is?), AJ, JJ, fitz (in his early years) but def right below them with a chance of being just as good
I really like Evans but he is no AJ Green...not even close. Evans doesn't have AJs fast twitch...that explosive quickness. AJ moves like a much smaller man. Evans moves and runs like a big man. So, I agree with your assessment...right below those guys.
