TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed first-round draft pick Mike Evans.

The 6-foot-5, 231-pound receiver from Texas A&M was the seventh overall pick in the draft and is expected to move into the starting lineup for an offence that ranked last in the NFL in yards gained last season.

Evans was Johnny Manziel favourite target in college, finishing with 151 receptions for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns in 26 games. He notched the two highest single-game receiving performances in Texas A&M history with a 287-yard outing against Auburn and 279-yard day against Alabama.

The Bucs announced the signing Thursday, the final day of the team's mandatory minicamp. Evans attended the workouts, but did not participate in drills because of a hamstring strain.
