I'd pass on him as we already have an athletic tight end who lacks top-end blocking ability.
I don't disagree with regards to passing on Graham because we do not have a third or fourth round pick. However, to say he is too raw to make a roster is a stretch. He runs very good routes and with the exception of one game (VT in the rain) he did a good job of catching the ball. He isn't afraid of contact and anyone of who saw him play BB and FB at UM would know that. What does Kareem Brown have to do with Graham? Brown was not a basketball player who decided to try out for the football team his senior year.
