Welcome to the giants Evan Engram
Evan Engram will be a very good friend of Eli Manning's very soon. Great receiving TE. #Giants #NFLDraft— Scott Bilo (@BiloFootball) April 28, 2017
All I could think about was what if Giants took Evan Engram and Chad Kelly... 1 down 1 to go @EvanEngram @ckelly_10— Cannon (@CannonBrisco84) April 28, 2017
I'm very happy the giants drafted TE, just didn't like that they skipped over foster. Evan engram seems like a baller though— Matt Engel (@mattengel_) April 28, 2017
