Who should LA Rams target from each NFL team at Trade Deadline
23 – New York Giants
While he may not be the first thought of many NFL fans, New York Giants tight end Evan Engram can still play well. He is freakishly athletic, can catch the ball at almost any point on the football field. And best of all, at 6-foot-3 and 240-pounds, has plenty of size and strength to initiate and maintain blocks on NFL defenders.
He is caught in offensive limbo with the Giants offense right now. The Giants cannot seem to figure out if they want him to be a blocking tight end or a receiving tight end, and so his role is ever-changing. Unfortunately for him, Engram is a much better player than the way the Giants are using him right now.
We know that the LAR Rams lost Gerald Everett to free agency, and Johnny Mundt to a season-ending injury. Their other players do not seem to fit the role envisioned by the Rams for the current role. Brycen Hopkins has simply not panned out, rookie Jacob Harris is too raw, and Kendall Blanton, on the practice squad, does not offer as high of a ceiling as the Rams seem to want.
Engram would be an ideal player for the Rams need to run more 12-personnel package to get the running game going. Engram also offers considerable forte in the passing game, having caught 236 of 385 passes for 2,591 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Rams’ offense could be a huge boost to his career.
