The more I think about it I think Evan could end up the #2 on this team. Big target fits our needs pretty well and fits the O. I like the pick a lot even though I had higher rated WRs on my list. Nelson needs to look out for this kid he could very well steal his job in camp.
To me Saunders and Evans as many have said already have different skillsets and roles. Saunders is a quick, shifty Slot guy who is one of those guys who has quick feet, can turn a Screen into a good gain and who can really work well on inside Plays. Evans is a big, prototypical outside Receiver. I have seen a few UCLA games last year and while many consider him a top prospect in the future Hundley is a QB who didn't do much to help Evans' stock. With a better QB Evans could have easily put up better numbers. I think he can be a solid outside Receiver in the pros, hope he can earn a spot and challenge guys like Nelson for playing time...
For what its worth, Evans got his 40 down to 4.4 at his pro day (from the 4.5 sited a lot at the combine that seems to be drawing some concern).
Evans is more well-rounded with fewer deficiencies. He may not be a burner or the best at any one thing, but he has the higher "floor" as they say. Saunders is a good pick but he certainly has that one little thing against him. "Little" being the operative word. And check out the Grades on WRs taken according to NFL.com. Look at the crowd of names right above and below Evans...
I think Evans will emerge as the game one starter opposite Decker.
Shaq Evans was apart of INGLEWOOD JETS as a kid.
