    Good god, the more i watch highlights/lowlights of this kid i think he is the one, im just unsure how well he plays dropping in zone coverage or in covering a tightend...if we dont take him with our first round pick and he is still available in the second round, i think he is a sure thing for us. Jerry hughes has the athleticism and pass rush we want too, more so than banta cain in the coverage dept..may be a little weak on setting the edge tho

    Everytime a player is all but guaranteed to be drafted here he gets put aside for another team
    I expect Graham to have absolutely no shot of being the Patriots first pick now.

    i agree if he is even there at #22 i say the pats go DL in the first. and graham, is not geting passed the cards he is a first round pick but not the pats first round pick.


    i think eric norwood. a late 2th round. pick or lindsey witten, a 3rd round pick would be more likely.


    i say the pats go DL. WR. CB with the first for picks.

    I watched some footage of Brandon (youtube, so take it for what it's worth) I'm not sure if the footage exists but there is no film of him dominating against the likes of Ohio State, Penn State, Iowa, etc. My point is, I want to see players excel against the elite players or teams. Anyone can be all world against Indiana or Northwestern.

    Is this the binkie of 2010?

    The flaws are too obvious. His arms are, as described, "abnormally" short, lacks ideal height, and doesn't appear to be a 3 down player. To his credit, he has a high motor and is an over-achiever. I just don't see him panning out in the NFL.

    Actually he beat Baluaga like a rented mule. Had Pryor on the run most of the day. Gave ND's offensive lines fits.
    Considering the cast of characters he had surrounding him. I would say he acquited himself quit nicely.

    Thanks for the updates, I'll see if I can find this. His performance against ND isn't the same as Penn State or OSU, sorry.

    I was there in Iowa for that game, and Graham was a man among boys. Bulaga got beat badly twice, Graham's first step was lethal.

    Graham is a beast. I don't care how long his arms are or what he run's the shuttle in. BEAST!!!

    Oh and a 60 min BEAST at that. :)

    Just watched the senior bowl again tonight and he stuck out like a sore thumb. What a Senior Bowl week he had. I'd be pretty happy if he fell to us. Doubt it though.

    If BB is shifting his template to more TBC, pass-rushing DE/OLB-Hybrid types who are decent at setting the edge against the run, but may not have great coverage skills, then Graham seems like a perfect fit. We'd need, then, probably three safeties who are very good in coverage and decent in run defense, as well as ILBs who are very good against the run and decent in coverage.

    someone called him a beast, therefore, he has no chance to be a patriot

    FWIW he played great against PSU. Without his pass rush, PSU would have scored 70. Michigan db's couldn't cover PSU's receivers. Makes me wonder about D.Warren though.I'd like to see some footage of him before I would draft him. I think we'll take one of Spiller, Bualaga or Iapoti if they are on the board at 22. If not, I J.Odrick - DE PSU. Then try to trade up from 44 to get an olb.

    I agree except linebacker or OL with 3rd pick if we resign Bodden.

    Brings up an interesting point: physically TBC has approx. the same measurables as J. Hughs and Graham.

    Odrick is going to be #22 pick.
