Evans has that ability to be dominant because he has the body size and knows how to come down with the ball in contested coverage. He's almost like a mix between Boldin and Dez Bryant in my opinion and if I were to pick one guy then Brandon Marshall. I don't think his lack of elite speed will be a big problem.
    I'd argue that Watkins has better body control and hands than Evans.

    I also think the 'in almost all cases in order to be dominant you need amazing size' comment is nonsense. Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith, Roddy White, Wes Welker, Marvin Harrison, and Chad Johnson are all guys that dominated for long stretches recently without amazing size. (that's not even getting into the old school Jerry Rices and Tim Browns of the world)

    IMHO, Watkins is clearly the best receiver in this class...he has and can do everything. I get what Wiked is saying about him and Torrey, but I think Watkins can be a suped up version of Torrey...and I thin Watkins does bring significant potential to do things Torrey doesn't such as breaking tackles and has more YAC potential IMHO.

    I just don't think there is any way we'd have a shot at him even if we continue to struggle.

    I do like Evans too and he'd be a nice consolation prize if we wind up drafting in the middle of the first...I do want to see Evans run at the combine, and also having Manziel scramble so much and not throw on rhythm so often prevents me from seeing how well Evans does on his initial routes...JFF turns so many plays into scramble drills.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
