WEEI.com will continue to offer daily insight and analysis regarding options that may be available to the Patriots when it comes to the 2014 NFL draft. Here is one in a series of profiles of players who could be on the board when it’€™s time for the Patriots to make a selection.

MIKE EVANS

Position: Wide receiver

School: Texas A&M

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 225 pounds

Achievements: Finalist for Biletnikoff Award, semifinalist for Maxwell Award, semifinalist for Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, Associated Press first-team All-American, first-team All-SEC

What he brings: Evans’ physical play, as well as his size and strength, makes him hard to defend. While many scouts talk about his strength in jump ball situations, some have said that Evans should take another year at Texas A&M to improve on his route-running.

Where the Patriots could get him: Evans is likely a top-20 pick, so the Patriots would have to trade up to get him.

Notes: Evans only played varsity football for one year in high school. After redshirting his freshman year along with quarterback Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M, Evans started in every game for the Aggies and led the team in catches with 82 for 1,105 yards. During the 2013 season, he led Texas A&M in receptions and receiving yards for the second consecutive year and broke the school’€™s record for receiving yards with 1,322.
