Pauline believes that the team who eventually drafts Evans will end up making a trade to acquire him.
As of now, Pauline mentions that the Rams, Eagles and Ravens are the “frontrunners” to make a move for Evans.
St. Louis holds the No. 2 overall pick, and is reportedly willing to trade down. According to Pauline, Evans is expected to be a target for the Rams if they’re able to move and still remain in the top-ten.
Pauline adds that the Ravens and Eagles are two teams to watch in regards to a possible move up for the right to draft Evans, as they are reportedly “very high” on the Texas A&M receiver.
It’s worth mentioning that Pauline has reported in the past few weeks that Evans is a “real possibility” for the New York Giants at No. 12 overall.
Evans put together a solid combine performance this past weekend, which included a forty time of 4.53 and a 37-inch vertical. At 6’5 and a wingspan of 35 1/8-inches, Evans catch radius really sets him apart from a very deep wide receiver draft class. The most common comparison being floated around for Evans is Buccaneeers WR Vincent Jackson.
