4. Evan Engram will be featured

The New York Giants’ offense is absolutely decimated right now. These guys are hurting in a bad way, and they need some type of spark to get going.

They’ll be without Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard, and Dwayne Harris, making Evan Engram the focus of their offensive attack.

For the Broncos, that means defending against a guy that was highly coveted in the 2017 NFL Draft process, and a player the Broncos likely heavily considered drafting if the timing was right.

Engram is listed as a tight end, but is essentially a very large receiver. He uses his body and athleticism to make smaller defensive backs look silly, and he has the speed of a smaller receiver.

This guy is a rare talent, and the Giants are likely going to feature him within their offense. The Broncos can’t be having breakdowns in coverage, especially at safety, with Engram on the field.

As a matter of fact, I think with the Giants’ young talent at the skill spots, we could very well see a great number of shots taken deep downfield. The Broncos have to be disciplined.
