Hey everyone, longtime Philadelphia Eagles fan here from BGN. As all of you know, the Eagles traded up to the 13th pick in last months NFL draft to acquire Brandon Graham. I made a fanpost on Bleeding Green Nation back in September saying that I thought the Eagles would draft him in the first round and everyone laughed at me. I was so happy when we picked him and I think he is going to do wonders for our defense. I just have a couple questions about the promising young star.
I am a HUGE fan of Brandon Graham and I think he will end our search for a bookend opposite Trent Cole. He actually reminds me of Cole a lot with his non-stop motor, mix of power and finesse moves, and quick first step. In watching a lot of his games this year, there wasn't much that I didn't like about him. So I come to you guys.
1. Would you say he is better against the run or the pass?
2. Is there anything that he typically struggles with?
3. "Draft experts" said that they were concerned with his "midget arms" and the fact that he will get swallowed up by bigger offensive tackles in the NFL. Do you guys buy into any of this or are you confident, like myself, that his college dominance will translate to the NFL on sundays?
I would love it if you guys can give me some feedback on these questions and hopefully #55 (now #54) will be making plays like this for Philly.
