RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After arguably his best season in the midnight green, Graham signed a four-year deal in March and is slated to step in for the departed Trent Cole at starting outside linebacker. He should see starter-level snaps this year as he looks to top his 2014 campaign, which featured 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles as a rotation player.
Graham has the ability to make an impact as a pass rusher in the NFL, but he's proven a poor fit in Philadelphia's 3-4. He might get traded in the near future.
Graham will be Philadelphia's top backup at outside linebacker, behind Trent Cole and Connor Barwin. Despite his backup designation, it could truthfully be a timeshare between the three, as Graham might actually be the most disruptive out of the trio. He's not likely to get on the IDP radar, however.
Although he's a promising talent and former 13th overall pick, Graham has had knee issues (including microfracture surgery) and is unlikely to see many snaps at end this year with Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Philip Hunt and Vinny Curry all in town.
Likely to start the season on the PUP list due to his knee injury from 2010. Will serve as a rotational player upon his return.
Graham will be in a rotation, but he could start as Philadelphia's left defensive end during his rookie season.
