The New York Giants have signed their 2017 first-round pick, tight end Evan Engram to a four-year rookie contract. The 22-year-old was selected 23rd overall, and is the first tight end since 2002 to be selected in the first round by the Giants.
The organization has confirmed the signing on its official Twitter account, earlier this afternoon:
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had really good words for Engram. He said that he was looking forward to seeing him on the field, and added that the young man is "a real hybrid. If you put him out there and you have a safety guard him that is going to be trouble, if you put him out there and you have a linebacker guard him that is going to be trouble and from what I have been hearing he has even tortured corners."
Engram played his college football at Ole Miss, where he recorded 162 receptions for 2,320 yards and 15 touchdowns.
