The Buccaneers have signed No. 7 overall pick, receiver Mike Evans, the team announced Thursday.

Though it seemed there was a possibility Tampa Bay would take a quarterback in the first round, the Buccaneers instead selected the tall, physical receiver who shined with Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M.

CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco immediately praised the selection.

Evans' contract is a four-year deal (with a team option for year No. 5) that should be worth a fully-guaranteed $14.63 million with a signing bonus of $8.96 million.
