What they are saying about Evan Engram

 

evan“It used to be Laquon Treadwell, now the explosive player on this offense is Evan Engram. You saw it against Florida State, where he went over 100, you saw it against Alabama, where he went over 100.”
– David Pollack, ESPN analyst | October 11, 2016

“I am really impressed with their offensive skill positions. They have great length at the wide receiver position. The tight end, Evan Engram, is a special talent and they do a lot of different things with him.”
– Memphis Head Coach Mike Norvell | September 26, 2016

“As good of a tight end as there is in the country … He’s a mismatch whoever you put against him.”
– Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN analyst | September 24, 2016

“Best tight end in the country, Evan Engram.”
– Greg McElroy, ESPN analyst | September 24, 2016

“He’s talented. He runs like a receiver. They put him in spots where he can get vertical down the field. The guy runs by DBs, and he’s a tight end. When you’ve got a tight end that runs faster than your DBs you’ve got a problem because he can get matched up on a linebacker.”
– Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart | September 22, 2016

“He’s a heck of an athlete. He’s a playmaker. He’s aggressive. He likes to hit people, too. He’s a blocker, so he’s not just a receiving tight end. He’ll put his helmet into someone. I’m just glad he stayed another year.”
– Chad Kelly, Ole Miss quarterback | September 19, 2016

“He has turned out to be an excellent football player. Some NFL team is going to draft him and make him a move tight end. He’s going to play at the next level for a long time and catch a lot of passes.”
– Andre Ware, ESPN analyst and Heisman Trophy winner | September 10, 2016

“One thing he does well is play with leverage. He gets his hands inside, really good technique. That gives him a chance. He’s real effective because he does that. He’s able to do that on a consistent basis, I think some (NFL) team is going to get a gem.”
– Ole Miss TE Coach Maurice Harris | August 27, 2016
