And so it begins….Something I saw as a very real possibility for the Raiders. A recent report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reveals the Oakland Raiders may have Texas A&M wideout Mike Evans ahead of #1 prospect Sammy Watkins.
A very intriguing report indeed, because if the Raiders do covet Mike Evans over Watkins, it would definitely open up the possibility of a trade down.
While Watkins is an elite prospect, he is still only 6’1 compared to Evans who towers over defenders at 6’5. The Raiders coud feel a big target would be a greater asset than the quick, speedy Watkins.
Remember in the NFL there are two things you cannot teach, that is Speed and Size. Evans has the size, but proved at the combine he has the speed too, running a 4.53 40 yard dash.
