WHAT TAMPA BAY CAN EXPECT by Ranger222

Mike is going to be one hell of a player in the NFL. The average fan doesn't know Mike has only been doing this football thing for four years. He has so much more to learn on how to play WR, and that will only make him better. He is already a Top 10 NFL Draft pick in one of the deepest WR drafts in recent memory.

The NFL is trending toward tall, lengthy receivers who really play as power forwards on the field. Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and even Jimmy Graham highlight a few of these type of players who are the best in the league. Mike can be next in line.

To me, the only thing you have to worry about with Mike is coming into a complex offensive system where wide receivers have to make their own reads and then adjust their routes to the proper coverage. This scenario plays right into Mike's weakness of limited football experience. The knocks on Evans are that he only played on the right side of the offense while at A&M and used a limited route tree. These multiple route-combination passing attacks that more NFL teams are moving to could slow down Evans early on. However, I think even his floor is very high. Mike should be collecting close to and over 1,000 receiving yards annually and making Pro Bowl appearances.
