2014 NFL combine: Texas A&M WR Mike Evans runs blazing 40
Johnny Manziel ran a solid 40 time on Sunday. His former receiver Mike Evans was even more impressive.
INDIANAPOLIS -- While former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was impressive Sunday while running his 40, his former receiver Mike Evans might have opened some eyes of his own when he finished his own sprint.
In his second attempt, Evans blazed to an unofficial 4.46 (he ran an unofficial 4.5 in his first), and considering Evans is 6-foot-5 and 231 pounds, he proved he has size, physicality and top-notch speed.
But perhaps he could have gone even faster.
After Evans' first attempt, here's what former collegiate runner and current ESPN reporter Josina Anderson wrote:
Mike Evans lumbering too much through that 40. Left time on the track. He tried to use his upper body too much to stabilize & create power— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) February 23, 2014
And after his second:
Mike Evans just put down a 4.47 on 2nd 40. Here's the thing, he's much faster than that time too. Technique all over the place straight line— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) February 23, 2014
One of our CBSSports.com mock drafters has Evans going at No. 10 to the Lions, while another has him at No. 13 to the Rams, and two have him at No. 17 to the Ravens.
