Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Grade Dem (former) Saints: Jimmy Graham

New, comments

In this series, we take a look at the starters and major role-players of the 2014 New Orleans Saints. With the recent trading of star TE Jimmy Graham to Seattle, now is as good of time as any to look back at possibly his FINAL season in a Saints uniform.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another edition of Rank Dat, where we take a look at the starters and major role-players of the 2014 New Orleans Saints, put a grade value on them, and list the things we liked and the things we disliked about them in the 2014 season.  Last time out, we put a C+ grade on Junior Galette.  This time, we look at the player that nearly broke CSC on March 10th, when he was suddenly traded to the Seattle Seahawks, TE Jimmy Graham.

Voting will remain open for 48 hours from the point that the article is posted, then I will comb over the comments and average out the grade, and look for common trends in the likes and dislikes.  After the final grade is calculated and comments compiled, I will post the results in a new thread and then we'll move on to another player.  To avoid shenanigans, only votes made in the comment section will be considered. After grades for all the starters and major role-players are compiled, I will release the "class rankings" for the 2014 season.

Will Jimmy pass his final exam as a Saint?

What grade does Graham deserve for the 2014 season?  What did you see from him that you liked? Disliked?

Example (from the Kenny Vaccaro edition):

nunoyo:

C+ : Not as awful as many seemed to think

Pros: high-motor, versatile role-player, physical pass defender, great speed to attack the run

Cons: took many poor angles, whiffed on several tackles, frequently got burned by receivers and quicker tight ends in pass coverage
