Originally posted by OnTheClock:Evans is your typical love-him-or-hate him prospect. 98% of fans fall under one of those categories, with not many in between in the "unsure" or "would be OK with" category. I find myself somewhere in the middle. On the field, he seems to consistently just get the job done. I admit, I lean more towards liking him as a prospect than I do the other side. I think he will be a great asset for a team that utilizes the downfield passing game.
I'm getting a 40 speed range in the neighborhood of 4.45 to 4.53 for Mike Evans. Very nice, and Quinton Patton was in the range of 4.40 to 4.50 and looked fluid in the playoffs. I think with that kind of speed, Mike Evans will scare a lot of DB's into backing off press man at the LOS. He'd be an ideal WR to replace a Crabtree and with that 4.5 speed, he can play a deep threat, opposite Anquan. I'm torn between the sheer speed of a Brandon Cooks and the shear athletic all around talent of a Mike Evans. I'm pretty sure that Baalke, if he wants either one, is going to trade up for them, and will give up a big chunk of draft capital for either one.
