In recent years the New York Giants have become a team that can turn even the most mediocre tight ends into play makers. While the position has been somewhat of a carrousel in years past, the Giants hope to have signed the future with Brandon Myers. He racked up some garbage yards with the lowly Oakland Raiders in 2012, but he has the skill set necessary to have a big year with Giants quarterback Eli Manning.  

For the last four seasons the Giants have had a tight end who has caught at least 35 passes, 530 yards and four touchdowns. To say that this position has been a good one for the Giants would be an understatement — obviously the Giants like to get the tight end involved early and often,

Head coach Tom Coughlin has always liked his tight ends, however he has used three different players at that spot in the last three years. In 2010 the team had Kevin Boss who was consistent with five touchdowns, but the team decided to let him leave for the Raiders. Since leaving the Giants in 2011, Boss has played in 16 games and has a total of 31 catches for 433 yards, so maybe the Giants system helped Boss more than we thought.

Jake Ballard would replace Boss and did a great job reeling in 38 balls for 604 yards. In 2012 Ballard would hit the dust and Martellus Bennett would take the throne as the best Giants tight end in quite some time with 626 yards, five touchdowns and an eye-popping 55 catches.

Myers has a great resume as he snagged 79 balls last year for 806 yards and four touchdowns. The Giants will definitely turn Myers into an NFL All-Pro this year as they continually get the most out of their tight ends.
