Analysis:

What do Calvin JohnsonBrandon MarshallA.J. Green and Vincent Jackson all have in common? They are all 6'4" or taller. Mike Evans is a huge wide receiver from Texas A&M listed at 6'5", 231 lbs. Just his size alone makes him a match-up nightmare for NFL cornerbacks (average height of 5'10"). Add on to that size a 37 inch vertical and Evans is almost unstoppable when given a jump ball. He has great control of his body and catches the ball at it's highest point. Evans has reliable hands and is a solid route-runner. He plays physical making him tough to press. For his size, Evans has impressive speed.

Negatives:

Evans is a long strider which slows down his acceleration. Because of this, he will have to make a living in traffic in the NFL. Evans will have to learn the full route tree, as he often relied on the scrambling of Johnny Manziel to get open.
