Flash Analysis

When the Philadelphia Eagles traded up No. 13, it was believed that they would look to select either S Earl Thomas.

Not only did that not happen, they wound up looking at a position that wasn't seen as one of need.

However, by selecting University of Michigan DE/OLB Brandon Graham, they got perhaps one of the most versatile defensive players available for this year's draft.

Graham's senior season at Michigan was terrific and he followed that up with a set of dominant performances during Senior Bowl week.

Graham could play with his hand down as a defensive end or he could play at strong-side linebacker for the Eagles.
