Ranking the NFL's best tight ends in 2020 - Execs, players, coaches pick the top 10

Evan Engram is the league’s seventh-ranked tight end in this survey, which shows you what league insiders think the Giants are missing when he isn’t able to get on the field.

"Those who haven't watched that dude need to," one NFL offensive coordinator said. "He's a true receiver. Polished releases, whole route tree, run after catch. He just plays in a bad offense."

If they just could stay healthy ...
