The Saints love his talent and the mismatches he presents in the red zone for the Saints offense. However, Tight end Jimmy Graham has struggled with drops at times in the camp so far.
He’ll make a couple of tough catches and then drop a routine pass. It’s puzzling, but at the same time kind of expected from a guy that hasn’t been playing football very long.
Graham was primarily a basketball player until the end of his college career. There are still going to be growing pains with Graham, but for the most part he’ll be a huge weapon in 2011.
Graham is expected to have a bust-out season and is ranked fifth on our tight end list, ahead of Vernon Davis and Owen Daniels. Unless his drops carry over to the season, it's probably nothing to be concerned about.
