Analysis:  Tanner McEvoy is an all around athlete who can play just about anywhere on the football field.  He has experience playing Safety, QB and WR.  His size and exceptional catching ability makes him a legitimate down field threat.  Tanner catches the ball very well and has reliable hands.  He is the type of receiver that will go and make the grab.  He catches the ball in his hands and doesn't let it get close to his body. Tanner is a versatile athlete and his playmaking abilities should remind people of former Texas WR Jordan Shipley. Tanner has the ability to leap over defenders and grab the ball right out of the air. Red Zone jump ball situations are going to be a specialty for this receiver at the next level.  Tanner is a threat not only as a WR but also on the defensive side of the ball. He is a hard-hitting safety.  His height and catching abilities make it dangers to throw to his side of the field.  If being an exceptional WR and a hard-hitting safety wasnt enough, Tanner is a good kick and punt returner.  His combination of speed and a lethal stiff arm causes havoc for opposing special teams.
