Mike Evans, Wide Receiver: Kansas City Chiefs Scouting Report


Mike Evans had an outstanding final season at Texas A&M. He had 69 receptions for 1,394 yards and 12 touchdowns. Those stats prove that Evans would be a great fit for a Chiefs offense that improved drastically throughout the second half of the 2013 season.

During his two year career as an Aggie, Evans started every game and had at least two catches in all of those games. In fact, he had four or more catches in all but one game during his college career (Source: NFL.com). This proves that Evans is a reliable receiver and that he doesn’t seem to be as injury prone as some of the other receivers entering the draft.

Here’s what NFL.com has to say about Evans,

 “Outstanding size and length. Functionally strong to power through the jam. Boxes out defenders and is a big red-zone target.”

Evans is 6’5” and would be able to make some big plays after each reception due to his size. Not to mention having a red-zone target would be great for Kansas City. The Chiefs struggled deep in opponents’ territory, so Alex Smith would love knowing that he’d always have Evans to rely on when the Chiefs made it into the red-zone.

NFL.com continues  on saying that Evans has,

 “Strong, reliable hands. Very strong after the catch — slams into tacklers, is a load to bring down and leans for extra yardage”

Dwayne Bowe has a reputation of frequently dropping passes, which has become very frustrating over the years. Evans is not a dropper. He makes big plays and refuses to be taken down. The Chiefs need a receiver like him.

There is a chance that Evans could be a Chief. He’s considered the second best receiver and is the 13th best player in the draft (both according to CBSSports.com, which was last updated yesterday). Bleacher Report has Evans going to the New York Jets with the 18th overall pick.

If Evans somehow does make it to the 23rd pick, the Chiefs shouldn’t hesitate to take him. Evans was a phenomenal player at Texas A&M and caught pass after pass from Johnny Manziel. He finished his college career with 151 receptions for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns. Just imagine how electric the Chiefs offense would be with the addition of Evans. Smith would have a huge playmaker to get the ball to, and the Chiefs would without a doubt be one of the best offenses in the league.

    I like Evans a lot and I think the perfect fit for Alex Smith and the Chiefs. He reminds me of Jordy Nelson of the Packers. Evans would be my 1st pick if the Chiefs go offense w/ their 1st pick. If the Chiefs should get him, I think it won’t be long before Bowe becomes the #2 target for Smith.

  2. Brian Dempsey says:

    Would love to have Evans. Just so happens the the Chiefs were the 1st team to interview Evans at the Combine ( Evans said so in his combine interview). BUT, I don’t believe he’ll fall to #23, as I can’t see the Steelers, Ravens, or Jets letting Evans fall past them. If he did fall to #23 by some miracle then he’ll be getting the phone call from Dorsey/Reid as he would be BPA and fills a need.

    Marqise Lee is starting to grow on me, as well ( kick return skills are a plus ).

    Even though a 3-4 DE that can attack the QB like Tuitt is 1st on my wish list, I’d be fine with Evans, Lee, Beckham, or Cooks.
