02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 13. *Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M, 6-5, 225, 4.58, 1...Like his college battery-mate, quarterback Johnny Manziel, Evans has not convinced everybody his talent and production can be sustained at the next level. His big body, long-striding style and strong hands worked well in college, but he must learn to create more separation in the NFL, where his size won't give him that much of an advantage and his route running will need to be more precise. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
02/19/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: 10 prospects with the most to gain/lose: 2. WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M ... Johnny Manziel will probably be drafted top-five and ahead of Evans, but he owes a good amount of his collegiate success to his Texas A&M teammate, who is a projected first rounder himself. The question for Evans is how will he go? We won't know the answer for a few more months, but many around the league believe his Combine workouts will correlate with his draft position. Everyone seems to have a guess as to what Evans will run in the 40-yard dash, some think he'll get in the 4.4's, while others forecast a number in the 4.7's. But regardless of his timed runs, Evans is most dangerous when he can box out defenders and use his strong hands to highpoint and come down with tough grabs in traffic. A 40-yard dash in the 4.52-4.58 range would just be icing on the cake. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/02/14 - Texas A&M WR Evans declares for 2014 NFL Draft...“After talking things over with Coach Sumlin and my family I have decided to enter the NFL draft,” Evans said. “Thanks go to Texas A&M for giving me an opportunity to play college football. Thanks also to my coaches and teammates for helping me develop as a player and as a man. I made this decision based on what I thought was best for myself and my family.”
He took down one of the oldest records in school annals when he exploded for 279 yards against then-top-ranked Alabama, which eclipsed the old mark of 250 yards set by Ken “Dude” McLean against Texas in 1965. A few weeks later, Evans broke the record again with 287 yards against Auburn. He also had four receiving touchdowns against the Tigers, which matched the school record originally set by Ryan Swope against Baylor in 2011.
For the 2013 season, Evans gained a school record 1,394 receiving yards on 69 catches with an impressive 20.2 per catch average. The consummate big-play threat, Evans was the only receiver in FBS with more than 45 catches to average more than 20 yards per catch, and he led the nation with 17 catches of 30+ yards and ranked No. 2 nationally with 28 catches of 20+ yards. He also reeled in 12 touchdown catches, which matched the school record originally set by Jeff Fuller in 2010. - Texas A&M football
01/02/14 - Texas A&M WR Evans declares for 2014 NFL Draft...Record-setting Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans will forego his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft, Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin announced on Thursday. Evans, a redshirt sophomore from Ball High School in Galveston, Texas, was a first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection and consensus All-American in 2013, and he was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given annually to the top receiver in college football.
“It’s been a pleasure watching Mike’s development as a receiver and a person the past two seasons,” Sumlin said. “Mike was one of the team’s hardest workers in whatever he was doing, and it paid off for him on the field. I think one of the highest compliments you can say about Mike is that he plays as hard when he doesn’t have the ball in his hands as when he does. Texas A&M wishes him the best as he moves on to the next chapter in his life.”
Despite playing just one season of high school football, the athletic and physical Evans was a dominant force for the Aggies. Evans broke or matched multiple school records in 2013 including single game receiving yards (twice), single game receiving touchdowns, season receiving yards and season receiving touchdowns. - Texas A&M football
12/31/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: This marks the 35th bowl for Texas A&M, which has a 15-19 bowl record. This will be the first postseason trip to Atlanta for the Aggies. It's also the eastern-most bowl assignment for Texas A&M since going to the Gator Bowl to play Tennessee in 1957. The Aggies aren't shy about throwing the ball around the field and down the field and that's bound to be part of the plan against Duke. With QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M will put pressure on Duke's secondary. Duke has been stung by teams looking to throw the ball down field, though the Blue Devils sorted out some of those problems by the middle of the season when some of the younger defensive backs gained experienced. - The Sports Xchange
