|TE James Graham, Miami (Fl.)|
|Pos. Rank: 4||Grade: 2nd-3rd Round||Height: 6-6 1/2||Weight: 260||40: 4.53||Year: 5-Sr.|
The Good: Large, athletic tight end prospect with an enormous amount of upside potential. Fluid getting off the line into routes, smooth moving about the field and looks like a receiver rather than tight end in motion. Displays natural pass catching skills, extending his hands and adjusting to the errant throw, or making the reception in stride. Displays good eye/hand coordination, gets vertical, and is graceful catching the ball. Displays the ability to get downfield into the secondary as a pass catcher. Gets vertical over defenders and makes a lot of athletic receptions.
The Bad: Must improve his blocking techniques. On the ground too much. Does not display a good sense of timing.
The Verdict: After stepping on the football field at Miami last season, Graham displayed incredible skills and looks like a big-time talent. He has a ways to go before developing a complete game, yet he is a tremendous prospect who could reward the team that is patient developing his skills.
