Outlook

Tampa Bay selected Mike Evans with the seventh overall draft pick this offseason. As a prospect, Evans has hulking dimensions at 6'5", more than 230 pounds, and a tremendous wingspan. Evans will barely be 21 years old for his first NFL game and with only one productive season in college, he is more of a wildcard than most top-10 selections. Mike Evans joins Vincent Jackson as one of the biggest wide receiver tandems in NFL history. Evans excels down the field, winning jump balls and working his way back to a quarterback in distress. He was a perfect fit with Johnny Manziel during their time together at Texas A&M. With little competition on the wide receiver depth chart for playing time, Evans is slated to see significant opportunity in his rookie season. Refinement of his short and intermediate routes will be key to his immediate success. Evans will consistently see single coverage opposite Vincent Jackson and, at a minimum, will be a threat for a long touchdown or red zone opportunity any given week.

Our View: Evans almost had another touchdown and showed that he can have a good day when the other Bucs receivers (and even tight ends) do well. He'll likely get a lot of Jalen Ramsey next week against the Rams.
