Good morning, New York Giants fans!
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."
"Routes, breaks ... he's top three," one veteran assistant coach said of the 25-year-old. "But he's not really a tight end."
The Giants may not have a true No. 1 wide receiver, but Bill Barnwell collectively ranks the Giants collection of playmakers No. 7 in the NFL.
If everyone could just get on the field at one time, the Giants would be something to stress out about for opposing defenses. Daniel Jones wasn't able to get his five key weapons -- Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton -- on the gridiron together for a single snap in 2019. Jones dropped back 77 times with only Shepard missing from that bunch and posted a passer rating of 100.7, 13 points higher than his season-long total.
Slayton was the revelation of the bunch, leading the team with 740 receiving yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie fifth-round pick. The Giants don't have anybody as valuable as DeAndre Hopkins, but they are deeper one through five than the vast majority of teams and still have position-leading upside at running back and tight end with Barkley and Engram. If they just could stay healthy ...
The New Yost says Williams is “holding a lottery ticket with one more opportunity to increase his winnings.”
Maurice Jones-Drew has Barkley at No. 6 because of pass protection. Yes, pass protection. C’mon, MJD!
