There are plays he looks like Jordy Nelson with his ability to get open, but you have to keep in mind that Manziel is buying him tons of time.
A&M fan here. I agree that Evans is no sure thing and he'll most likely run somewhere in the 4.65 range. I do like the fact that he uses his body against defenders extremely well and has extraordinary concentration. He reminds me so much of Gonzalez. He's in his fourth year playing football, so I don't know if that means he has room to improve his routes, but he is definitely one of the biggest competitors on the team. He beat out a couple of experienced seniors as a redshirt freshman last year. Receivers are just so hard to project. The homer in me thinks he could be Colston...but I honestly have no clue.
If I had to rank the 2014/2015 prospects A&M prospects, it'd go like this for me
1. Johnny Manziel QB- Everything aside, this dude just has it. Position gets him the nod over Jake.
2. Jake Matthews OT- Love this guy
3. Deshazor Everett CB- Would be a great fit for the chiefs, IMO. Great tackler, good skills and talent, ideal size. Unfortunately, he's playing safety out of desperation right now.
4- Cedric Ogbuehi OT- If he keeps building on his frame, the sky is the limit for him.
5- Mike Evans WR- Might be worth it. Love him as a college player, obviously. Might be A&M's best receiver of all-time
6- Jarvis Harrison OG- Starting his 3rd year as a Junior on that dominant line. He is a big boy.
