The hours are counting down until the start of the 2014 NFL Draft, but the drama should remain up until the first few picks are selected.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that Raiders brass covet Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, and actually have him listed ahead of Clemson star Sammy Watkins, on their big board.
As one league source who is as connected on matters of the draft as anyone explained it to PFT, the Raiders are believed to prefer Evans to Watkins. The question becomes whether both are still on the board at No. 5, and whether the Raiders choose to pick a receiver.
Reports say the Jaguars could be in play for Watkins at No. 3 as well.Powered by Sidelines
