Gatorsports.com counts down this season's standout players in the nation's toughest conference.

No. 22 Mike Evans

Position: Wide receiver

School: Texas A&M

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 218 pounds

Year: Sophomore

Why he's No. 22: As a redshirt freshman, Evans came out of nowhere last season to emerge as Johnny Football’s go-to wide receiver. He caught 82 passes for 1,105 yards and five touchdowns and averaged 13.5 yards a reception. He’s every cornerback’s potential worst nightmare. His combination of size and blazing speed make him almost impossible to cover man-to-man. After what he accomplished last season, Evans appears primed to emerge as one of the nation’s elite wide receivers in 2013.
