Bucs WR Mike Evans route running better than advertised

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked up WR Mike Evans in the draft to pair with Vincent Jackson on offense. He had an impressive combination of speed and size, but there were some question marks with his route running abilities. Working on offense with Johnny Manziel may have hidden his ability to get open out of the breaks. He has shown a consistent ability to get open with his route running in Tampa practices though:

With the combination of Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson on offense, Josh McCown should be comfortable getting the ball out to his receivers. They should be able to get separation from defenses and they will both be able to fight for the football when it is in the air.

Just throw the ball up to them and watch them come down with it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers passing game should be fun to watch. Having Mike Evans running crisp routes just makes it that much more dangerous for opposing defenses.
