Round 4, pick No. 112:  TE Isaiah Likely, Coastal Carolina

With the loss of Evan Engram, Kaden Smith, and Kyle Rudolph, the NY Giants only have one NFL caliber TE on the roster currently in the form of Ricky Seals-Jones, meaning the Giants must find a replacement for the veterans they lost. With that being said, I believe a great replacement for the lost veterans is Isaiah Likely out of Coastal Carolina

Similar to Zion Johnson, Isaiah Likely is a prospect I have praised several times recently. As I believe he has all the tools it takes to be an elite TE in the NFL.

Coming in at 6’4, 240, Isaiah Likely had himself a monster season at Coastal Carolina, catching 59 passes for 912 yards and 12 touchdowns in 13 games. All while only dropping 1 pass on 77 targets.

In addition to these ridiculous stats, Isaiah Likely also has some promise as a blocker. While there are some things he needs to work on in that aspect, he has a lot of potential and has shown how willing he is to block in the run game.

Isaiah Likely has it all as a receiver, he is a great route runner, tremendous in the open field, and seemingly has glue on his hands. If he can just work out a couple of issues with his blocking, which mostly pertains to his technique, he will be a sure-shot superstar in this league.
