Mike Evans Highlights Tampa Bay Bucs WR NFL Draft 2014 Interview
Mike Evans Highlights Tampa Bay Bucs WR NFL Draft 2014 Interview (Coverage sponsored by Courtyard New York Manhattan Central Park) Mike Evans is a wide receiver that's sorely needed by the Oakland Raiders, but was passed over for Khalil Mack (great choice) and taken by the Bucs. Evans is a rare combination of size, speed, and pass-catching skill who will light up the NFL in Jeff Tedford's new offense. Here's Evans: Q. How do you feel? MIKE EVANS: I feel great. Q. What did the Buccaneers say to you on the phone? EVANS: They said they're excited that I'm coming, and that was pretty much it. Q. How are you looking forward to playing with Vincent Jackson? EVANS: I'm very excited. Me and him have similar games. I'm just ready to learn the art of route running. I want to learn the offense as soon as possible and just learn what it takes to be successful in this league. I think we can do great things. Q. Did you talk to Lovie Smith at all in detail? EVANS: No. When he called me, I talked to him a little bit. Other than that, I haven't. Q. Did you have a chance to meet former Cal coach Jeff Tedford, who's now your offensive coordinator? EVANS: I haven't had a chance to meet him yet. Q. Can you talk about your experience going from high school until tonight? EVANS: It went by quick, but I had a great coaching staff at A&M, made the transition real easy. I was very raw coming out of high school, didn't know what a route was. I perfected my craft. I'm looking forward to getting better, though. It went by fast, and it's a blessing, and I look forward to playing with the Bucs.
