Detroit Lions will check out Mike Evans at his pro day

While most of the NFL will be focused on quarterback Johnny Manziel Thursday at the Texas A&M pro day, the Lions will be watching wide receiver Mike Evans.

General manager Martin Mayhew and coach JIm Caldwell will attend.

The workouts will air live on the NFL Network at 11:30 a.m.

Evans (in photo) is considered the second-best wide receiver available in the draft. He could be one of the Lions’ top options with the 10th overall pick in the draft.

Earlier this month Mayhew and Caldwell attended the pro day for wide receiver Sammy Watkins at Clemson. In fact Mayhew told reporters the two had dinner with Watkins’ family. 

Watkins is ranked as the top wide receiver prospect. If the Lions wanted to draft him it’s likely they would have to move up in the draft order. He’s expected to be a top five draft pick.

The Lions signed free agent wide receiver Golden Tate two weeks ago.
