Mike Evans: 'I'm the best wide receiver in Draft'

Former Texas A&M Aggies wide receiver Mike Evans believes that he is the best wideout available in this year's NFL Draft.

Mike Evans has declared himself as the best wide receiver available in this year's NFL Draft.

The former Texas A&M Aggies receiver was one of Johnny Manziel's top targets last season, recording 1,394 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.

The 20-year-old told USA Today: "There's a lot of great receivers in this Draft, don't get me wrong. but I feel I'm the best one.

"It was a great experience playing with one of my best friends. [Manziel is] a great playmaker, being a part of his success, I love him to death. He throws a great ball and throws it away from the defender where only I can get it.

"I get a lot of [Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver] Vincent Jackson comparisons. That's a great comparison. But I think Brandon Marshall [of the Chicago Bears]. He's vicious after the catch, big receiver who can go up and get it, catch it real well. So I've modelled my game after him since high school."

Eight NFL teams interviewed Evans at the Scouting Combine yesterday.
