#6. Mike Evans

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recognized Evans’ immense potential and selected him as the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. From the moment he stepped onto the professional stage, Evans wasted no time in making his mark. In his rookie season, he amassed an impressive 1,051 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns, earning him a spot on the NFL All-Rookie Team.

Since then, Evans has continued to build on his success, consistently putting up remarkable numbers and dominating opposing defenses. His combination of size (6’5, 225 lbs), 4.5 speed, and exceptional ball skills has made him a nightmare for defenders to cover.

Over the course of his career, Evans has consistently been a key target for whoever his quarterback is, and his ability to make contested catches and outmuscle defenders in the air has set him apart as one of the most prolific receivers in the league.

One of Evans’ most impressive accomplishments is his consistency in putting up 1,000-yard seasons. In his full 9 seasons in the NFL, he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark every year, a feat achieved by only 6 other wide receivers in league history. His ability to produce at such a high level year after year is a testament to his just how dominant Evans has been.
