Aggie WR Mike Evans Declares for NFL Draft

Thomas Campbell, USA TODAY Sports

After two seasons in College Station, Evans is heading to the NFL.

In his two short years on the field as a Wide Receiver for Texas A&M, Mike Evans went from an unknown to a household name as one of the best in the nation. Aggie fans have been hearing for a while that Evans was highly likely to declare early for the 2014 NFL Draft. Two days after winning the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, we have our answer.

The 6'5" 225 pound Sophomore is undoubtedly one of the all-time great pass catchers for Texas A&M. Evans finished the 2013 season averaging 20.2 yards per catch on 69 receptions. He caught 13 fewer passes compared to his Freshman season, but managed to tack on 289 more yards. His 1,394 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns in 2013 are both school records. Mike quickly won over fans and continued to be a favorite with his toughness on the outside and jaw dropping catches. His effective run-blocking and absolute hate for going out of bounds to avoid being tackled was something that was great to see from such a young player. His career in the Maroon and White will wrap up with 151 receptions, 2,499 total yards, 17 touchdowns, and an average of 16.9 yards per catch. Insane numbers from an insanely talented Aggie who is just scratching the surface of how good he can really be at his position.

As for the NFL Draft, Mike Evans has graded out as high as the top ranked Wide Receiver on some draft boards. CBSSports.com has Evans ranked as the 10th best prospect overall and 2nd at his position.

Congratulations, Mike. It was a pleasure watching you fight for the Aggies. Thanks and Gig 'em!
