Calvin Johnson is bigger, stronger and faster than Evans and when do they use him at TE??? Oh, basically never. The same goes for Colston and Vincent Jackson. Nothing wrong with that guy being able to physically dominate DBs, but the concept that he has shown to be multi-positional is speculative at best.
im not comparing calvin to evans nor am i saying his lined up as a TE. what i am saying though is in certain situations i think he could do it

If you want a top WR that is multi-dimensional, Watkins is your guy. He runs like a RB, is quick-twitch like a slot receiver, and has the size and "go get it" of an outside receiver.

I think Evans is a hell of a player though. Vincent Jackson is an excellent comparison.

Default Re: Luxury Picks

just to be clear im not saying i want a multi-dimensional player. what i am saying is that i think Evans can play in an array of offences and if you want can play him in different positions. his not solely a deep threat receiver.

i.e. if we was at the texans you could play aj, hopkins and evans all on the field and still utilise alot of the playbook

When you say a guy can play TE that means that he can put has hand down in a 3 point stance and block an NFL OLB without any help.

You don't watch a lot of A&M football, do you? He plays quite a bit in the slot and is very adept at using his frame to block out the defender and come up with the ball. I've seen him score on plenty of crossing routes and slant routes in his career.

this can be taught he certainly has the physical attributes for it.

but again this would be situational, if he ever does line up from a TE position his not going to block and would be used as a catching TE

You explained exactly why evans should not be considered a guy who can play tight end.

Anyway just wAtched 1st half of the msu game and evans line up as the furthest wr on the right side at least 15 plays. Ina row. Great player just dynamic at one thing not multi. Faceted

Default Re: Luxury Picks

Would love to get Evans although unless his stock dramatically falls in the combine or we trade one of the WRs we do have it is far too wasteful and would be like how the Titans have drafted multiple WRs in the past few seasons despite rarely having their franchise QB healthy enough to throw to them or them being able to catch due to various circumstances.

Evans is not and will not be a TE. He has great size and he blocks DBs just fine, but he is not blocking NFL DEs and OLBs one on one.

That said, he is an incredible specimen at WR.

I see your point but so is Calvin Johnson. Doesn't mean he's a TE.

?? Ok? Not sure what the debate is shifting into.

My point is that he is a WR that fits the mold of other NFL outside WRs.
