Evan Engram – Senior / 6’3″ / 234 lbs – Ole Miss

  • Ole Miss all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.
  • 65 catches for 926 yards and 8 TDs in his senior year while finishing his 4 year career with 162 catches for 2,300 yards and 15 TDs
  • Very athletic and explosive TE who ran the 40 in 4.42 which is crazy-fast for a TE.
  • Can jump out of the gym.
  • Has short area quickness allowing him to come out of his breaks w/out losing much speed.
  • Doesn’t play very physical and will be a move TE at the next level being utilized more on passing downs which isn’t a bad thing these days.
  • Not a great blocker due to a lack of physicality mentioned above.
  • Has the frame to put on some weight at the next level.
  • Can beat teams deep down the seems and should be a major factor in the red-zone on jump balls.
  • Too fast for LB’s to cover and too big for safeties which means match-up problems all-day.
  • Doesn’t have any injury red flags.
  • Engram is ranked as the 29th overall prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft and the 3rd best tight end in what should be the best TE class in the last 10-15 years.
  • First-team All-SEC and All-American honors as a senior.
  • Dropped almost 10% of his catchable targets his senior year.
  • Good leadership skills being named as a team captain during his final 2 years at Ole Miss.
  • Wasn’t highly recruited by the power-five conference programs coming out of HS as he really only got scholarship offers from Ole Miss and Wake Forest.
  • Rated as the #27 TE in the country coming out of HS
  • COMBINE UPDATE: 40 = 4.42, Vertical = 36″, Broad Jump = 10’4″, Bench = 19
  • NFL DRAFT SELECTION: Round 1-2
  • DYNASTY ROOKIE: Should be the 3rd TE off the board in rookie drafts in the late 2nd or early 3rd round.  I tend to value TE’s with this kind of elite physical talents.  TE’s tend to take longer to develop, usually by year 3 or so they can become TE1’s in the right system.  Just stash them away and be patient why they develop.
