Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' draft picks: Round 1/13 -- Brandon Graham, DE, 6-1 1/2, 268, Michigan: The Eagles traded up 11 spots from No. 24 to No. 13 to get Graham. The Eagles feel Graham can be the ideal left-end pass-rushing compliment to Pro Bowl right end Trent Cole. Graham is sort of a Cole clone: Undersized, but a high play-to-the-whistle motor. - by The Sports Xchange

12/20/12 - DE Brandon Graham's career didn't get off to the best of starts. Taken in the first round of the 2010 draft by the Eagles ahead of Jason Pierre-Paul, he tore his ACL late in his rookie season and needed career-threatening microfracture surgery on top of the surgery to repair the ACL.

He's got four sacks in the last three games and is tied for the team lead in sacks with 5.5.
