TJ Graham
Round 3, Pick 69
Position: WR
Class:  Sr
HT: 5'11"
WT: 180 lbs.
40 Time: 4.35
Conference: ACC
Biography: All-conference selection as a senior after totaling 46 receptions/757 yards/7 TDs while Also averaging 11.5 yards on 17 punt returns with one score. Averaged 22.4 yards on 44 kick returns last season. Junior receiving numbers included 25/316/4 with an average of 8.1 yards on 19 punt returns. All-American sprinter on the North Carolina State indoor track team.

Positives: Athletic prospect starting to develop into a complete receiver. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, shows a burst of speed and has the ability to run away from defenders. Plays with excellent balance and body control. Nicely adjusts the errant throw and gets vertical to pull the high pass from the air. Extends to make the reception away from his frame. Looks the ball into his hands.

Negatives: Moderately productive in college. Must improve his route running. Not a sturdy wideout.

Analysis: Graham is slowly transitioning his sprinter?s speed into football ability, and he watched his game take off last season. He has the skills necessary to be a productive third or fourth receiver for an NFL team while also handling return duties. Graham comes with a large amount of upside and should only get better with NFL coaching.

Projection: 5th
