When discussing Mike Evans, one of the first things that comes to mind is his physicality. Evans is not only taller than your average receiver, he is also bigger and stronger. Weighing in at over 225 pounds and measuring in at 6 feet and 5 inches Mike Evans is a force to be reckoned with. One thing about Evans that stands out is the way he comes down on the ball even when it looks like he has little to no chance of completing the catch. Jameis Winston is lucky to have a receiver like this throw to.
In the third quarter of the Buccaneers’ divisional matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, Jameis tossed the ball to Evans in double coverage. Evans soared over both defenders and brought the ball in anyway.
While the Bucs put up a solid performance they really need to manage more wins. The touchdown brought them within three points to victory, but sadly that was not enough. The major takeaway from the game is to keep giving Mike Evans the ball and let him do what he does best. His almost magnetic-like drive to the ball and his strength make him a defense’s worst nightmare.
