2(55). Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
With pieces in place on the outside with Odell Beckham Jr and Sterling Shepard working in the slot, the Giants lacked a tight end to make their passing game the total package. Insert Engram, standing 6-foot-3 and weighing 235 pounds. He’s not going to blow you away with his measurables, but he doesn’t need to.
Engram is a very clean and quick tight end who is often compared to Jordan Reed. With his dominance in the Receiving game, he could be used as a go-to target that the Giants have lacked for quite some time.
A great way to scout players is in big games and the best coverage linebackers Ole Miss faced came from Alabama. Even in a game with such defensive pressure, Engram put up a stat line of nine catches, 138 yards and one touchdown. Providing Eli with a check down option and giving defenses another threat to worry about provides the Giants with the ability to make much more happen on the offensive side of the ball again this year.
