Evan Engram Bio

Evan Engram is a tight end for the New York Giants. A tight end through high school and college, Engram played his college football for Ole Miss. In four seasons with the Rebels, Engram caught 162 passes for 2,320 yards and 15 touchdowns. Engram's final season college stats were 65 receptions for 926 yards and eight scores in 2016. His deeds were enough to see him win the Conerly Trophy, a prize awarded to the best college player in the state of Mississippi.

Evan Engram's athletic profile heading into the 2017 NFL Draft was nothing short of breathtaking. He was above the 87th percentile in all the key workout metrics, including an electrifying 4.42 40 time and a 93rd percentile wingspan of 10.31. The Giants took him 23rd overall, making him one of three tight ends taken in the first round that year. The other two were O.J. Howard and David Njoku.

Engram quickly burst onto the scene for the Giants as a rookie. He was No.3 among all tight ends with 444 routes run. Engram commanded a 20 percent target share and caught 64 passes for 722 yards and six touchdowns, finishing the season as the TE4 in fantasy points per game. He was No.5 in YAC with 273. His numbers could have been even better, as Engram led all tight ends in Unrealised Air Yards with 554. He was also No.1 with 13 drops.

Engram has not been able to match or better his reception, yards, or touchdown tallies in any of the four seasons since his rookie campaign. Indeed, he has a combined ten touchdown grabs after six in 2017. The only stat Engram has come close to matching is his number of drops. He was No.2 in 2020 with 10. In 2021, he played 74.15 of the Giants offensive snaps, and was No.10 in pass routes run with 415. But his Target Rate of 17.6% was No.34, and he finished outside the top 20 in receptions and receiving yards. He saw just four deep balls all season. Engram did manage to fit in five drops, No.10 among all tight ends. That prompted the Giants to let him walk only for the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign him to a one-year prove-it deal.

Engram would in fact "Prove it" in 2022 as the veteran tight end would finish in the top five among all tight ends in Receptions, Receiving yards, and Yards after Catch. The Jaguars offered Engram the Franchise Tag early in the 2023 offseason, but both sides were optimistic that a contract would be complete before the season. During the Summer, the Jaguars were able to sign the tight end to a four year deal with over $20 Million guaranteed. Engram would go one to eclipse 100 receptions in 2023, finishing inside the top five in fantasy points scored per game among tight ends. Engram looks to continue to be a key cog in the Jags passing attack in the future.
