Former Mississippi tight end Evan Engram ended up in a great spot heading into his first NFL season. With the New York Giants he has a capable quarterback in Eli Manning and great receivers around him like Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall.
In case you aren't familiar with Evan Engram or need some insight on your fantasy football lineup, here's some stats to remember from his college football career:
Engram piled up the receiving yards at Ole Miss, going over the 2,000-yard mark thanks to a healthy senior season — 65 catches, 926 yards and eight scores. He averaged 14.3 yards per catch and 56.6 yards per game over his career, averaging 84.2 yards per game in his senior season.
That's the number of tights ends drafted before him, as in just 1 — O.J. Howard of Alabama, who was drafted by Tampa Bay 19th overall. Engram was the second tight end off of the board with the 23rd pick in the draft, and he was one of three first-round TE's (Miami's David Njoku went No. 29 to Cleveland).
9 for 138
That's yards and catches against Alabama last year, Engram's senior season. While the Rebels lost, Engram balled out, averaging 15.3 yards per catch and scoring a touchdown. He averaged 16.3 yards per catch against Alabama in his career.
That's a blistering 40-yard dash time for a tight end, the fastest of any tight end at the 2017 NFL Combine and tied with four wide receivers for the fifth-fastest time among wide receivers or tight ends. Only two running backs ran a faster 40 time at the combine.
That's pounds, which makes Engram the seventh-lightest tight end in the league. At 6-foot-3, 236 pounds he's got basically the same build as Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (6-foot-3, 229 pounds) or Washington Redskins receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr. (6-fot-4, 228 pounds). Engram is going to be a matchup nightmare, especially when Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are also on the field.
