Do we all agree? Mike Evans to TB?


I also think that it was all but unanimous that Bridgewater will go to the Vikings.

And, unless, BUF somehow drafts Justin Gilbert, then DET's pick will not change, either.

1. HOU - Jadaveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
2. STL - Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
3. JAX - Blake Bortles, QB, UCF
4. CLE - Johnny Football, QB, Texas A&M
5. OAK - Greg Robinson, LT, Auburn
6. ATL - Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
7. TB - Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
8. MIN - Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
9. BUF - ???
10. DET - Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma St.
2014 NFL Draft: Mike Evans' stock rises with Williams trade

By Derek Harper | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com
April 4, 2014



Is Tampa Bay eyeing Mike Evans with its pick at No. 7?

The biggest winner out of Friday's trade of wide receiver Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills could ultimately prove to be Mike Evans.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were aggressive in reshaping their roster under new general manager Jason Licht and head coach Lovie Smith, and were set to enter the 2014 NFL Draft with plenty of directions they could go with the No. 7 overall pick. In dealing Williams, however, the Bucs now have a clear need for a playmaking wide receiver opposite Vincent Jackson.

NFLDraftScoutcom's Rob Rang projects the Bucs to land Clemson's Sammy Watkins at No. 7, but there figures to be plenty of jockeying in front of Tampa Bay come draft day for the most dynamic wideout in this draft. Fellow analysis Dane Brugler projects Watkins to the Oakland Raiders two picks earlier, and a number of teams could be interested in leapfrogging the Bucs should Watkins still be on the board.

That could bring Evans into play with the seventh pick. At 6-feet-5 and 231 pounds, Evans would team with Jackson (6-5, 230) to give new starting quarterback Josh McCown the type of super-sized combo he excelled with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery in Chicago last season. Smith also helped bring Marshall and Jeffery to Chicago as head coach of the Bears.

Evans, the second-rated wide receiver and No. 13 overall prospect by NFLDraftScout.com, is a long-strider who has been compared to Jackson by NFLDraftScout.com since last year due to his combination of size, physicality and body control. Some scouts believe Evans helped "make" Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, and the redshirt sophomore has increased his stock since the end of the season - highlighted by his 4.53-second 40-yard dash time he was credited with at the Scouting Combine.

There is little doubt the Bucs will target a receiver earlier in the Draft. Of the other six receivers they have on the current roster, only Louis Murphy has more than two years of NFL experience, and the sixth-year veteran caught only six passes for the New York Giants last season.
