Brandon Graham is a very solid player but I view him as a slightly better prospect than Parys Haralson. Maybe in the right scheme he can be a double digit sack guy but then again Haralson nearly was a double digit sack guy in 08 but no one will ever confuse him with an elite pass rusher.
I hope people finally wake up now and realize Tim Tebow is a 3rd rd prospect AT BEST.
Iupati will go where he belongs, in the 20-32 range.
I hope we get Gilyard, McCluster or Arenas (or Spiller).
I still like Bulaga and Earl Thomas with our 2 1st rd picks.
Haralson was nowhere near the prospect that Graham is. Haralson was drafted exactly where he should've been -- in the 5th round.
Haralson has not once been in the double digits his entire career. He had 8 in 2008. He never even had double-digit sacks in college, with the most he ever had being 8.5 his senior year.
Graham led the nation in TFL and has had back to back double-digit sack years. He's a monster and a man playing amongst boys. He and Haralson are completely uncomparable.
Agreed, and I watched just about every game Parys played at Tennessee...love the guy and was extremely happy we drafted him, but he's not in the same conversation in terms of pass rush skills, size, physical abilities and ranking as a prospect as Graham is.
I really like Haralson too, but I'd love to see him come in as a 3rd down specialist. I'd love to have a legit OLB who was enough of an upgrade to send Parys to the bench. If Graham is that guy, I'd love to have him.
