Summary

Evan Engram is a glorified wide receiver because he's proven in two seasons blocking is not a strong suit. However, there's a place for a catch-first tight end in today's NFL, and Engram has the raw skill set to be among the most prolific pass catchers at the position. To reach that potential, Engram will need to improve his conditioning, ability to stay on the field, decision-making, and focus. He's earned a reputation for making spectacular plays look effortless and easy plays look hard; that won't lead to stardom if it persists. With Odell Beckham traded, Engram becomes the team's best vertical threat, and he should get opportunities to beat single coverage downfield presuming Eli Manning regains his willingness to throw deep. Engram's play digressed last year (45 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns) after an impressive rookie season (64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns), in part because of a concussion and knee and thigh injuries. With Saquon Barkley commanding 100+ targets, and Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard worthy of considerable target share, Engram will need an impressive preseason to earn a higher spot in the pecking order.
