Unfortunately for three different FBS programs, the wide receiver position has hit the early-entry trifecta Thursday.
This afternoon, Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and Penn State’s Allen Robinson were joined by Texas A&M’s Mike Evans as receivers leaving eligibility on the table and diving headfirst into the 2014 NFL draft pool. *The official word from A&M is far from a surprise; four days ago, it was reported that Evans was leaving after a couple of months worth of speculation that he would do just that.
The past two seasons, Evans has caught 151 passes for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns. *The 6-5, 225-pound redshirt sophomore averaged a little over 20 yards per reception in 2013.
We’re still awaiting official word on the decision of the triggerman of the Aggies’ offense the past two seasons, Johnny Manziel. *The 2012 Heisman winner is widely expected to take the early leap into the NFL as well.
