Is Graham just never going to make it because of those injuriezzz?
We can relate to that schit.
Tell me more about Brandon.
How did he get injured in the first place anyway?
I think he had a non-contact ACL tear late in his rookie season.
Then he missed the 2011 season while recovering from the surgery.
in 2012 he came back and was one of the best pass rushers in the NFL as a rotational player in a 4-3 wide-9. This year he has been getting a <20 snaps a game as a rotational 3-4 OLB and not been doing as well.
I think he best fits a 4-3 Wide-9 but could be a impact 10+ sack guy in any 4-3, really. If he was signed by a team like the Falcons, Rams, or Giants and given a starter's job, he could probably be a top-10 DE easily.
The injury really didn't affect him that much because he played really well in 2012. He just needs to be a 4-3 DE, and probably a 4-3 LDE.
