Texas A&M’s red-shirt sophomore Mike Evans has skills that could help him develop into a player along the same stylistic continuum as Boston, Brandon Marshall, and Vincent Jackson.

Odd the article would pick David Boston for comparison just because of all the steroid issues. Odder still the author pinpoints his time with the Chargers as when he got on 'roids when it's pretty apparent he got on them when he was with the Cardinals. He went from weighing 209 to 238 over the offseason coming into 2001...which would be his best season. It was widely rumored he was on 'roids at that time.
When fisrt saw guy thought of old Browns receiver Dave Logan.
Bsoton may have doen roids with acrdinals but becsmem ridicouls with SD Chargers. Guy could no longer move laterally due to droid usage.
So he's Boston strong?
I'm also not seeing how Boston really fits into the comparison. He's 6'2 while Marshall is 6'4" and Evans is 6'5" so he's not the same sort of receiver. He also was an extremely good kick returner at Ohio State while Evans has never done that.
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
