Mike Evans says he’s hearing he could be top-10 pick

While Clemson’s Sammy Watkins is widely considered the top wide receiver prospect in this year’s draft, another receiver is making a case to move into the top-10.

According to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle, Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans says he’s hearing that he could be a top-10 selection during the draft in May.

I see it and I hear it,” Evans said. “That’s what I’m gunning for: a top-10 pick. So I’m trying to showcase my talents and make teams like me.”

Evans did not take part during Texas A&M’s pro day on Wednesday. Instead, Evans and quarterback Johnny Manziel will have a separate workout in College State, Tex. on March 27.

However, Evans is still making an impression. Evans had a very strong performance at the combine in February. At 6-foot-5 and 231 pounds, the 4.53 seconds he posted in the 40-yard dash turned heads. He said he met with close to 20 teams at the combine and had visits with the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots ahead of Texas A&M’s pro day.

Evans feels like he deserves to be selected as one of the first handful of players in May. If he can turn in another strong performance during his workout at the end of the month, Evans could take another step toward solidifying that possibility.

    Sure. If Watkins is gone by the time Buffalo picks, which is almost certain, they could take him.

    Raiders, Bills or Lions – the guy’s a freak who deserves top 10 consideration.

    I think he has a strong chance of being the #10 pick. The Lions will like him a lot and pick him or if they trade the pick then Evans could be the target for that team.
