2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan
Brandon Graham is currently the best pass rusher in the Big Ten, and one of the top four or five pass rushers in all of college football. In 46 career games, he has accumulated 56 tackles for loss and 29.5 sacks. Graham's biggest question mark (as far as his draft status is concerned), is what positions he'll be able to play in the NFL. At 6'2 and 263 pounds he has good size for a 4-3 defensive end, but there are questions about whether or not he will be able to effectively drop into coverage if he plays as a 3-4 outside linebacker. If he is seen as a potential fit at either position, he'll increase his draft stock tremendously. Regardless of what position scouts see him at, he is a consensus late first round or early second round prospect. His best fit may be as a defensive end for a team that runs a version of the cover 2 defense. He isn't the biggest end, but he plays the run extremely well for his size. He does a great job of turning ball carriers back inside and right into his linebackers. Couple that with his quick first step and wide array of pass rushing maneuvers, and he is similar in a lot of ways to Robert Mathis of the Indianapolis Colts. Brandon Graham put on quite a show at the 2010 Senior Bowl. After a solid week of practice, Graham dominated the game registering 5 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and forcing a fumble. This performance against other top senior players may have vaulted him into the first round of the 2010 NFL draft.
