Football Outsiders is always crunching numbers and in assessing best hands and drop rate, Lee Evans is among the best in the league over the past two years.

In their report on defensive drop rate they also list the five players with the best hands. Over the past two years Evans had a drop rate of 1.5 percent good for third in the league. In fact last season of the 95 times Evans was thrown the ball he had just one drop.

Those are the kind of numbers expected from a number one receiver and Evans has always had strong hands. Ahead of him on the list were Brian Westbrook and Sidney Rice.
