Video: The Mike Evans Catch

May 17th, 2014

Mike Evans turned heads, wowed watchers and dropped jaws yesterday, the first time non-Bucs employees were allowed to watch Evans on a Bucs practice field.

He certainly got Joe’s attention.

And the No. 7 pick of the draft didn’t disappoint. It only took him 101 minutes into the 120-minute practice to leave a lasting impression.

Lining up in almost a slot position to the right, Evans ran sort of a seam route or a post route where the pass from Brett Smith was terribly overthrown. Overthrown for any mere receiver, not a freak like Evans.

Evans jumped, reached up as if he was Grant Hill about to tomahawk slam an alley-oop pass from Bobby Hurley. Evans grabbed the pass without even trying to use two hands. He brought the ball back down and continued to the end zone as if he had done this all his life.

First there were photos. Now comes the video courtesy of Enjoy.

    Great catch, but from the looks of it Mike Evans might have been decapitated if that were a real play and those safeties weren’t pulling up at the end there.

    It was just a catch in practice vs scrub DBs. . Can everyone calm down ..

    Sammy Watkins > Mike Evans

  7. Miguel Grande Says:

    Thanks Joe, I feel so much better about the team this year.

    I may buy season tickets for my family.

  8. Harry Says:

    Somebody ran a wrong route there. 2 receivers in the same area. That was a sweet catch.

    @Pablo, Evans will be better than Watkins. Not taking anything away from Watkins, he is a heck of an athlete, but ME13 will be a better downfield receiver.

    pablo…would you like some more whine.

  10. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Pablo – you are a goof.
    Watkins was drafted before our pick. Wanna whine we didn’t get Clowney too. Hope you enjoy cheering for Buffalo. Have fun with that

    Decapitated?????? Hmmmmm…so 15 more yards on a personal foul penalty and we are at the 2 yard line. I’ll take that.
