Continuing on with the 2014 Draft class, Davante Adams is another player who inexplicably receives more love from the media than Mike Evans. Adams is a great player, but yet again he falls short of Mike Evans.
Davante Adams came into the league in the second round of the 2014 Draft alongside Jarvis Landry.
Adams has experienced perhaps the most postseason success of anyone on this list, but that should be a given considering he has the fortunate opportunity of playing alongside one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time; Aaron Rodgers.
Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have become a frightening duo up in Green Bay. Adams has played in 86 games during his tenure and has 431 receptions (less than Evans), 5,194 yards (less than Evans), and 44 touchdowns (also less than Evans).
When looking at some of the other stats, Adams also has a lower average yards per reception with 12.1 and a lower overall average yards per target with 7.5.
When taking into account the games that were missed due to injury, it seems likely that Adams would only pass Evans in receptions and potentially touchdowns, but as it stands at this point Davante Adams’ only better stat than Evans is his catch rate which is potentially indicative of the accuracy disparity between Aaron Rodgers and Jameis Winston.
Mike Evans is again able to do far more with far less considering Adams has a better quarterback and overall team.
