The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans with the seventh overall pick in Thursday's NFL Draft.
According to an nfl.com draft profile, Evans combined with Johnny Manziel to form one of the most dominant quarterback-receiver connections in the nation the last two seasons. He's a big, physical, strong-handed, West Coast possession receiver with playmaking ability who projects as a No. 2 in the pros, where he will make his money as a chain mover and red-zone target.
The first six picks were defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (Houston Texans), offensive tackle Greg Monroe (St. Louis Rams), quarterback Blake Bortles (Jacksonville Jaguars), wide receiver Sammy Watkins (Buffalo Bills in trade with Cleveland Browns), linebacker Khalil Mack (Oakland Raiders) and offensive tackle Jake Matthews (Atlanta Falcons).
