Schrager ( Mock Draft: Graham #11 to Denver

Submitted by .ghost. on February 25th, 2010 at 11:32 AM

I love this bit: "...McDaniels and co. will love his makeup, his leadership skills, and his non-stop pursuit of the ball. AFC West opponents will not."

That's pretty high up there. Hopefully he kills it at the combine and solidifies a top spot. I hope Graham retires as a trillionaire. With 5 super bowl rings.

I'm still waiting for someone to issue a statement on Graham that I believe is sufficient to encapsulate his greatness. "Minotaur Unicorn Savior" is the closest I've come.

Not a Bronco's fan but my buddy just got added to their staff as a def. assistant. First text I sent him said, "Draft B. Graham...will not be disapointed."

be bringing a player to my favorite team from my second favorite team. i love the broncos with passion and the wolverines a small fraction under that. i believe BG could step up and contribute to a defense that needs another PR in the worst division in the league...Go Broncs, Go BG and Uof M!!!

I think Graham may struggle in the combine. He's a big production guy that is probably a little too small to play defensive end and a little too slow to play linebacker.

Basically, he's not going to be a workout warrior--he'll get drafted on production, not on Al Davis's craziness.

I'm hoping that Graham somehow ends up in Bill Belichek's evil evil clutches. I'm just not sure how he's going to slip that far down. He's got to slide to the 22nd pick, and I can't imagine that there aren't other teams that would gladly pick him up before that point. Still, I can dream at night.

I would honestly like to see him play as an OLB in the Steelers 3-4 scheme. I believe one of the ESPN d-bags (Kiper/Schefter) had him as a top 5 OLB for the draft class anyways. How sweet would it be to have him and Woodley terrorizing QB's together on blitzes?

The Steelers have two very good outside linebackers right now. James Harrison is still only 31. Yes he's on the downside of his career, but I don't see the Steelers drafting a 1st round replacement right now. Maybe next year (if Harrison shows signs of slowing down), but certainly now right now. You'd be paying 1st round draft money on someone that would be sitting on the bench like a development project. Graham would be a great fit for the Steelers, but a lousy pick based on their roster and needs. If the Steelers do draft an OLB, it's going to be someone in the lower rounds who they can afford to have sit and develop.

I've been saying it for awhile now, that Graham could easily be the best player in this draft - including Suh! Someone posted a comment about how he's not going to wow people at the combine, however, that's exactly what he's going to do. He will run the 40 somewhere around 4.5 - 4.6, faster then most linebackers and definitely faster than all the defensive ends (actually that is even faster than most running backs and wide receivers, braylon Edwards ran a 4.56). I just don't understand how everyone isn't raving about his athletic ability if they watched the same games as me. I bet he out runs Edwards 40 combine time. Furthermore, I bet the ratio of speed compared to weight will be the best, meaning that for his weight he will run a faster time than those who post a 40 at 4.3 but only weigh 170.
