Evan Engram NFL Draft Profile
Evan Engram-TE-Ole Miss
Size: 6’3 234lbs
- Quick feet
- Leaper/High points the ball
- Vertical speed
Analysis: Evan Engram is your prototypical ‘move’ tight end. He will not be on the field or utilized much for a team’ s running plays, but he can attack all three levels of the field in the passing game. Plus athletic ability with easy-opening hips. Nimble feet with quick, controlled strides into and out of his breaks. Accelerates out of his breaks to uncover from defenders for quarterback. Will have to be guarded by defensive backs. Opens quickly to find the ball. He has true vertical speed to attack the seams. Competitive, athletic runner after the catch. Springy leaper. Jumped out of the gym to snare a touchdown over the head of a Georgia defender. Able to pluck balls low, high, and behind him.
- Struggles in the blocking game
- Not schooled on how to beat zone coverages
- Focus drops
Analysis: Engram can still be considered a bit ‘raw’ at the true position of a tight end. He needs to learn when and where to sit down in the middle of the field. Must learn to do a better job of working back to the ball. Doesn’t post up defenders effectively. Allows defender to work through him and disrupt the catch. Has had issues with drops and contested catches could be an issue. Needs to do better job of selling a two-way go to the top of his routes rather than giving route direction away. Move tight end only who lacks any dependability as a blocker.
