Welcome to the NY Football Giants.
While I campaigned for an OLine upgrade, I see the Giants are going to protect Manning with weapons.
The Giants offense has the look of an arcade game: OBJ, Marshall, Shepard, Engram, Parker & (hopefully) Vereen.
A team's defense cannot double all these toys and Manning is polished enough to exploit the match-ups he wants on any given play.
I really like the pick...
I thought for a moment that OJ Howard was going to slip to the Giants, but then Tampa grabbed him.
Many people like Njoku more than Engram, but I saw all three TEs in the same tier.
I assume Reese/McAdoo see Njoku as a project and the Giants already have one project TE on the roster in Jerell Adams.
Engram is a game-ready move TE that will create ridiculous match-up issues for every defense...
He's 6'3", 235lbs, runs a 4.42 forty and can line-up inside or out.
He can't block linemen, but, most likely won't be required to regularly.
He can block downfield... coupling Engram and Marshall on the same side downfield... I can already see the screen plays unfolding.
I do not expect Engram to be fantasy consistent in Year 1, but this is a solid football pick.
Let's see how the Giants follow up.
