could the Giants see Darren Waller as a big WR? Might the Giants still draft a young TE? seeing its a strong draft for TEs. When I watched Darren Waller I always feel like he looks like a WR.
He is a move TE...

He will play in the slot and on the line, but he isn't lining up on the outside.
Waller started his career as a WR  
fish3321 : 3/15/2023 12:07 pm : link
so yes, hes a "move" tight end. Hes what Kenny Golliday should have been
My guess is he’ll

Be used like Kelce is for KC
He'll be an excellent intermediate target.

Real good size, nightmare matchup.
Still gonna need someone to take the top off. Hopefully we get that in the draft.
My guess is you'll see him in the slot a LOT

like the Chiefs do with Kelce
He will be a weapon.  
blueblood : 3/15/2023 12:12 pm : link
and thats what matters...He plays inline, outside and from the slot..
Waller played inline for 57% of his snaps w/

LV-OAK. He may line up outside on occasion to present a different look, but he’s the going to be a WR.
he also lines up "wide"  
Dave on the UWS : 3/15/2023 12:17 pm : link
a significant number of snaps each game. Shockey did the same thing.
He's a pass catcher  
BigBlue7 : 3/15/2023 12:20 pm : link
He is easily one of the best TEs in the NFL when healthy...  
sb from NYT Forum : 3/15/2023 12:20 pm : link 2019 and 2020 he was top 3.

Why would the Giants move him to WR?
He’s definitely lining up outside too  
No1MDGiantsFan : 3/15/2023 12:21 pm : link
Just like he always has
Brown_Hornet : 3/15/2023 12:25 pm : link
...I think they added a Y.

Sort of like asking if the US is a democracy or a republic.

We are, he is.
Looking forward to all the threads from Manny...

where he suggests that Waller should be a WR and not a TE ;>)
Skill set of a WR in the body of a TE.

The Upside of Darren Waller, from Nick Falato.

Darren Waller Film Breakdown, from Bobby Skinner.
Definitely could see 2 TEs, with Waller the "Kelce" and Bellinger  
PatersonPlank : 3/15/2023 12:40 pm : link
more the blocking/outlet valve guy. Reduced the number of WRs we need on the field (no matter what formation), which is a good thing because we are very thin there. So for example Bell and Waller, Wandale, Barkley, and the new WR (FA or draft).
I wasn't saying I  
mdthedream : 3/15/2023 1:26 pm : link
think he is a WR I am asking do you think the Giants feel he might be that big WR they are missing and still go draft a TE to go with Bellinger. It would also make some sense seeing he does get injured as a TE.
I love  
mdthedream : 3/15/2023 1:27 pm : link
wallers game and he will be a big plus.
mdthedream : 3/15/2023 1:28 pm : link
I also suggested that Jones is really good and we will be bringing him back. :)

Golladay all over again
Can't we just dust off  
Semipro Lineman : 3/15/2023 1:36 pm : link
the all the old Even Engram to Wide Out threads and just change the names?
mdthedream : 3/15/2023 1:42 pm : link
had a great season for the Jags. He just is not a good blocker.
Replying to: Waller? - mdthedream : 12:04 pm  
JerrysKids : 3/15/2023 3:08 pm : link
Exactly as I see it, I think Waller and Belly will be on the field together a lot. Think Gronk + Hernandez duo.

Waller is a better contested catch receiver and runs much better routes. He's a top TE, when healthy, for a reason. Evan Engram never has been.
He mostly needs to be…

Healthy and stay that way!
