- Draft Tracker: Round 1
New York Giants
Pete Prisco's Grade: B
They need a tight end, but I would have gone for an offensive lineman here. He is a good pass catcher.
The Giants' offense was sluggish last season, and Engram chances that.. At 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds, Engram isn't your prototypical inline tight end. But in today's NFL, that's not a bug, it's a feature. He's a matchup nightmare for defenses, and his versatility means he can dominate the middle of the field. He still can grow as a receiver, which is great news for the Giants' passing game and a nightmare scenario for the rest of the league.
"It's a little surprising to see Evan Engram get selected ahead of David Njoku, but Engram fills a need for the Giants and helps Eli Manning. He could start ahead of Will Tye, and he'll get plenty of single coverage with Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard on the field. Engram won't be a Fantasy starter in seasonal leagues, but he's someone to monitor during the year as a waiver wire addition." -- Jamey Eisenberg
