Notes:
2009 Second-Team All-American for Michigan, also earning All-Big Ten Conference First-Team recognition after recording a career-best 64 tackles, 26 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks...Graham's TFL total as a senior led the nation as he got the job done in 12 starts at defensive end for the Wolverines...A Ted Hendricks Award finalist who was also on the watch lists for the Rotary Lombardi, Chuck Bednarik, Bronko Nagurski and Ronnie Lottawards as well...Graham was an All-Big Ten Second-Team choice as a junior when he led the Michigan defensive line with 46 tackles, 20 TFLs and 10 sacks...Led the Wolverines in sacks as a sophomore as well in 2007 with 8.5, adding three forced fumbles as he became a candidate for the Hendricks Trophy for the first time...A pass rusher who never takes a play off Graham, who had a little trouble off the field in 2008, was named Michigan's team MVP two straight years...Eagles hope the bold move to get the productive Graham pays immediate dividends.
