Jimmy Graham Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'6 - 260 lbs.|
2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami
For three years Jimmy Graham spent his collegiate career playing basketball at Miami. For his senior season he opted to return to football and try out playing some tight end. The Hurricanes could have used another big body on the hardwood, but Graham's future is in football and he proved that during his one year of playing collegiate football. In ten games, Graham caught 17 passes for 213 yards and five touchdowns. At 6-6 and 260 pounds, Graham has the size to be a great threat in the red zone. The fact that five of his 17 catches went for a touchdown proves that the Hurricanes were using him in that way. His lack of experience is obviously a concern, but the history of power forwards playing tight end is a long one and most NFL teams will not hesitate to take him just because he only played one year in college. This is a smart player who has all the physical tools to succeed. Graham had a successful NFL Combine and was one of the faster and more athletic tight ends in Indianapolis. While there are certainly two types of tight ends these days (and Graham has a lot of work to do before he can become a solid blocker), he will be a great vertical threat for any team who is still searching for a tight end that can stretch the field. If Graham falls past round three, it will be a surprise.
