2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
John Graves, DT, Virginia Tech
The 2009 season did not go as well, mostly due to a nagging ankle injury. Graves played in 13 games, but he was really only at full strength during the bowl game. It was during the bowl game against Tennessee that Graves recorded the first sack of his career. Fully healthy in 2010, Graves was back to his old ways for his senior season. Through 13 games, he has a career high 35 tackles and 16 quarterback hurries.
At 6-3 and 278 pounds, Graves will not be the biggest tackle in this class. In fact, he has moved between tackle and end at Virginia Tech and could face a similar dilemma at the next level. He is relatively quick, but not strong enough to beat most tackles and play at the end spot. Unfortunately Graves is a classic tweener and that will drop him down to a late round selection.
