While Johnny Manziel got a lot of the media attention and acclaim during the 2012 football season, another redshirt freshman on the Texas A&M team was having a banner year of his own. Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans had a great freshman season in 2012 and enters the 2013 season as the top receiver in the Southeastern Conference.
The quarterback gets most of the credit and receives most of the blame when a team wins or loses. Manziel should have received a lot of attention for his 2012 season, but very few people recognized how Evans played such an integral part of that success.
Evans was Manziel's security blanket. It was Evans who went up over the Ole Miss defensive back to make a clutch 32-yard reception when the Ags were facing a 3rd-and-19 from their own 3-yard line.
The rising sophomore wide receiver from Galveston, TX will be the best receiver in the SEC in 2013. This is a look at a few receivers who will compete with Evans for that title.
