As the draft approaches, buzz has been building that Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans could end up in the top five.
He actually could end up ahead of receiver Sammy Watkins, as the first wideout selected.
As one league source who is as connected on matters of the draft as anyone explained it to PFT, the Raiders are believed to prefer Evans to Watkins. The question becomes whether both are still on the board at No. 5, and whether the Raiders choose to pick a receiver.
The Jaguars also could be in play for Watkins at No. 3. Jacksonville also is believed to be seriously considering linebacker Khalil Mack, if he’s still available.
There’s a chance the Aggies deliver three picks in the top 10, with Evans joined by tackle Jake Matthews and quarterback Johnny Manziel. All three will be in the green room at Radio City Music Hall tonight, and two of them (Evans and Manziel) will join PFT Live at 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday.
