    Summary: The Lamarr Woodley comparisons are cliche and obvious, but Graham doesn't have Woodley's long arms or first step. However, Graham is the prospect I'm somewhat afraid to doubt. He put out very good tape and he'll give you everything he's got to make it in the league. If a team wants to convert Graham to outside linebacker, then they will have to find a way to hide his deficiencies in coverage. I don't think Graham is a top-25 first-round value, and I think he's a better college than pro player. Graham is going to come off the board in the top 40 picks.

    Player Comparison: Dewayne White. White has a non-stop motor, is great in run support, and has similar size to Brandon Graham.
