Justin Evans – Safety, Texas A&M
If the Bucs choose to wait until day two to address their safety needs, then Justin Evans from Texas A&M could be the name to watch as the draft progresses.
He’s probably not fully suited to start day one, but his overall skill set makes him a prime candidate to develop within a year or two into a playmaker with an aggressive streak.
The defense took so well to Alexander in his rookie year because of his aggressive play and willingness to hit stick an opponent.
Evans has the same drive, but has deep ball skills to go with it.
It may take him some time to become an every week fixture on the field for Tampa, but once he gets in there, fans are going to love his style.
Just like every other cover man at the combine, his foot work, reflexes and hip movement are going to go a long way to determining whether or not he makes or loses money during these proceedings.
He’s not likely to jump into day one conversation, and should be there day two if the Bucs decide to make a move to get him and add some depth to their roster with very exciting upside.
