NY Giants Have 13 former 1st-Round picks: Projecting each player’s role
6 of 12
Evan Engram, Tight End
Draft Spot: #23 in 2017 NFL Draft. Selected by the NY Giants
Projected Role: Starting Tight End
It’s now or never for Evan Engram.
The 2020 Pro Bowler somehow earned this dubious honor despite having an extremely disappointing, frustrating, and unimpressive season in year four of his NFL career.
Engram has struggled with focusing, catching the ball, holding onto the ball, and receiving handoffs with the Giants. All these issues popped up multiple times in New York and his lack of consistency and reliability is a major concern.
The Giants added kyle Rudolph to the tight end room. The pressure’s on Engram to perform better and succeed this season or he likely will be with a new team come 2022.
