Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel had his personal Pro Day on Thursday and both Pittsburgh Steelers General Manger Kevin Colbert and Head Coach Mike Tomlin were on hand to see it.
During his workout, Manziel threw to wide receiver Mike Evans and that’s the real reason why Colbert and Tomlin were in attendance. According to a Thursday report on Twitter by Gil Brandt of NFL.com, Evans showed good hands during the well anticipated and highly attended event.
Mike Evans has the best hands I've seen since Calvin Johnson.

Evans and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins are considered by many to be the top-two rated players at their respective position this year. While it is unlikely that Watkins will still be on the board when the Steelers pick in the first round, there is a decent chance that Evans might be.
The Steelers are expected to draft a wide receiver in the first few rounds this year after losing Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery during the free agency signing period. They have, however, signed former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore thus far to replace one of those two losses.
