Is Mike Evans a Top-Five Wide Receiver?


Mike Evans is top five wide receiver. Here’s why:

The debate of “Best Receivers in the NFL” is one that is always on going.

Names that frequently are on the list include Deandre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, and Odell Beckham Jr.

However, a name that is commonly left out is Bucs wide receiver, Mike Evans.

Mike Evans stands at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, combined with 4.53 40-yard-dash speed and an incredible 38 1/8th inch arm length.

Evans is a former college hoops standout, and it shows on the gridiron.


The Bucs star is able to box out defenders and use his length to snag jump balls with ease.

In each of his five seasons in the NFL, Evans has exceeded 1,000 yards, an achievement by only shared with two other players in NFL history (A.J. Green & Randy Moss).

At age 25 Evans has broken both NFL and Buccaneers team records.

He is the youngest player in NFL history to reach 6,000 career receiving yards and became the youngest receiver ever to record a 200-yard receiving game.


Evans also holds ten Buccaneer franchise records such as recording the most receiving yards in a single season (1,524), most 100-yard receiving games (21), and most receiving touchdowns in a season (12) among others.

Evans ended 2018 as a top-five wide receiver in the NFL in terms of receiving yards with 1,524. He finished behind only Tyreek Hill, Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, and DeAndre Hopkins.

Possibly the most impressive stat from Evans 2018 campaign is the fact he had 19 fewer receptions less than the next closest receiver on the list above.

Despite having fewer receptions, Evans made his way onto this list thanks to finishing the season with an incredible average of 17 yards per reception.

Evans is getting better each season and shows no signs of slowing down.

The numbers prove Evans is a top five receiver right now but when all is said in done they may just prove him to be among the all-time greats.
