Brandon Graham, DE - Michigan

Pick made by fiftycal2004:

The signing of Dunta Robinson filled the most pressing need for the Falcons. So, with John Abraham and Mike Peterson not getting any younger and Jamaal Anderson looking like a bust in the making, they will go after a DE or OLB in this slot. Ultimately, they pick Graham, who had a strong senior bowl, over Sean Weatherspoon in hopes of improving their pass rush which finished 26th in the league in sacks. Though shorter than some scouts might like, Graham's collegiate production, quickness, and good moves make this a good pick.

How would he impact the 2010 Falcons?

In 2010, Graham should push Anderson for playing time opposite Abraham. Also, look for him to slide over to DT in obvious passing situations to generate more pressure on opposing QBs.

If Graham is taken #19 by the Falcons, it would be the 3rd DL taken by the Falcons in the first round over the past 4 years (Jamaal Anderson & Peria Jerry). He will also be the 1st DE taken in the first round from Michigan since 1985, when Kevin Brooks was taken #17 overall by the Cowboys.
