Watch for the Bucs receiver, stay for cornerback Charles James II going on about how no one goes up and gets a ball like Evans and cornerbacks can’t stop him. Good fun.
This was Evans’ second time on the list, after he made it to #75 after his rookie year. He didn’t get on the player-voted list last season, presumably because he had a few too many drops. With fewer drops, a slew of memorable catches and 1,321 receiving yards with 12 touchdowns it was a little hard to keep him off it this year—and his peers agreed.
Earlier, Gerald McCoy and Jameis Winston made this year’s Top 100 list at #52 and #57, so the Bucs are reasonably well-presented. It seems unlikely any other Bucs make the list this year, though Brent Grimes probably deserved a spot. Oh well.
