I stumbled across that awhile ago and it makes sense - Evans is a guy with build up speed and wasn't a track guy like many of the other receivers which contributed to his slower start and poor technique in the 40. He's one of the younger players in the draft at 20 with an August birthday and could easily run in the mid-4.4's if he cleaned up his technique if this article is to be believed which is scary at his size. I wouldn't be surprised at all if some teams had Evans higher than Watkins on their board and one of those teams could be the 49ers. He's not as explosive or dangerous after the catch, but he has similar top-end speed and is more of a matchup nightmare because of his size.
The 49ers have shown interest in Evans and visited with him privately. He is almost a unanimous top 10 pick and likely will be taken at 7 by the Bucs, so they are at least considering making a very large trade up to get him. 5 might be a little too high, but who knows what kind of deal we can get from the Raiders. I wouldn't rule out that the 49ers have him rated much higher than many of us.
