T.J. Graham Scouting Report
Ht. 6-0 Wt. 181
Strengths: Track speed and can get over the top of the defense with ease. Gets up to top speed quickly and can track the ball vertically. Possesses decent height at around 6’0 and overall solid ball skills. Added value on special teams as a kick returner.
Weaknesses: He is more fast than quick and doesn’t have as much short area quickness as expected. Raw route runner that ran primarily vertical in the NC State pass game. He will need a ton of work in the NFL in terms of route running. He runs through breaks and relies solely on speed to get by defenders at the collegiate level. He’s not physical and lacks ideal strength for a WR which will cause him problems on the jam in the NFL. He doesn’t change directions well for as good of an athlete as he is.
Bottom Line: T.J. Graham is a major work in progress. A ton of speed to get behind the defense and will be one of the fastest receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft. I was really disappointed in his change of direction skills and the lack of short area burst.
Draft Projection: 4-5
