the New York Giants. We have spent much of the week talking about the future at quarterback Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , and we certainly will spend more time doing that over the next few months.There are, however, other positions on a football team and other decisions the Giants have to make. Let’s begin position-by-position reviews with a look at tight end. We will look back at what transpired in 2018, discuss the choices the organization has to make and what the position might look like in 2019.2018 review2018 roster: Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison, Scott Simonson, Hakeem Valles (practice squad/IR)As we look at the tight end position, let’s first look at how the Giants employed their tight ends in 2018. Last January, we wondered how Pat Shurmur would use tight ends. Well, the Giants used ‘12’ personnel Authentic Alec Ogletree Jersey , one running back and two tight ends, on 24 percent of their offensive snaps. Only five teams used that alignment more frequently. So, the position was important to their offense.That deployment made sense with Evan Engram being able to split out and function at times as a pseudo-wide receiver, and with the Giants really struggling to find a consistent third wide receiver. It also made sense at times to use Rhett Ellison and Scott Simonson in heavier sets to run block for Saquon Barkley.Here is how the Giants aligned Engram in 2018, per Pro Football Focus:Inline — 243 snaps (51.1 percent)Slot — 169 snaps (35.6 percent)Wide — 57 snaps (12 percent)Backfield — 6 snaps (1.3 percent)This was not a great season for Engram. He played in only 11 games as a knee injury sidelined him for three games and a hamstring injury cost him two more. Some speculated during the middle portion of the season that Engram was a disappointment and the Giants might look to trade their 2017 first-round pick this offseason. Engram and Odell Beckham Jr. are the only Jerry Reese first-round picks remaining on the Giants’ roster, so perhaps that speculation was understandable.Engram, though, became a primary focus of the passing attack over the final four games. He made 22 of his 45 receptions and had his four highest yardage totals of the season in those games.Engram said he “just kind of stayed the course” throughout the season.“I just wanted to finish strong,” Engram said. “Just take advantage of the opportunities that I got, and to just keep getting better and keep taking steps as a player and a better playmaker.”For the second straight season Ellison Authentic Nate Solder Jersey , better known for his blocking, set career highs in receptions (25) and yards receiving (272). Simonson, who had only one reception in 18 career games prior to this season, played in all 16 games and had nine receptions. Simonson did, however, commit seven penalties in 217 snaps. Right guard Jamon Brown (eight penalties in 509 snaps) was the only offensive player to commit more.2018 Tight End ProductionNameTargetsReceptionsPct.

CaughtYardsTouchdownsYards/ReceptionDropsPasser Rating2019 look aheadRather than moving on from Engram, the Giants should really be figuring out more ways to utilize him. Especially when Odell Beckham Jr. is in the lineup. In both of Engram’s NFL seasons, his role in the offense has spiked when Beckham has been hurt. To take another step on offense, the Giants need to find more ways to incorporate the talents of both players.These are the kinds of things Engram can do for the Giants:The Giants do have decisions to make in regards to whether Ellison and Simonson are back next season.Ellison is a good player and a Shurmur favorite. He will, however Color Rush Kareem Martin Jersey , be 31 next season, has probably reached the peak of his production as a receiver, and carries a 5.75 million cap hit that is high for what he brings to the table. The Giants could save $3.25 million against the salary cap by cutting him, $4.5 million if they designate him a post-June 1 cut.Simonson can be a restricted free agent. He is a similar player to Ellison and a less expensive one, so perhaps his fate is tied to whether or not the Giants bring Ellison back.If the Giants move on from Ellison they will likely need to add a player at this spot. Considering all of the other needs the Giants have, though, it doesn’t seem likely that they would spend big free agent dollars or a high draft choice to add to the tight end spot. For the fourth time in four years, the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers will face off in the College Football playoffs. And for the third time in that period, the two teams will face off for the National Championship.As we should all expect from the two teams which have been atop the college football world for the last four years, this game is going to be absolutely packed with future NFL players on both sides of the ball for both teams. With the New York Giants once again drafting highly Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey , there is the distinct possibility that we will be watching at least one future Giant tonight. National Championship Game: (1) Alabama vs. (2) Clemson ESPN - 8 p.m. The two teams in this game had relatively easy paths to the National Championship Game. Alabama outscored Oklahoma’s explosive offense and Heisman Trophy winning QB Kyler Murray on its way to a 45-34 win in the Rose Bowl. Clemson simply dominated Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl, winning 30-3. Of course, both sides also had concerns heading in to the play-offs as well. Alabama had to get starting QB Tua Tagovailoa healthy following ankle surgery, while Clemson had to deal with the suspension of three players for testing positive for a banned substance — including starting nose tackle Dexter Lawrence. (Lawrence will miss tonight’s game.) But path and adversity aside, these are two behemoth football programs. They are as well coached as any in college football, and better than many in the NFL. Nick Saban and Dabo Sweeny have built recruiting machines which acquire and churn out a steady supply of elite prospects. Their combination of great players and great coaching is a combination which few other programs in the country can match — as evidenced by their records and continued meetings in the post-season.
