Is Jimmy Graham the Lebron James of the NFL? One Ravens cornerback believes so
Last week, Zach Ertz said that Jimmy Graham would not be effective in the Eagles offensive system but the Ravens think otherwise. They feel Jimmy Graham is a beast, especially Ladarius Webb the Ravens corner.
“He’s like LeBron James playing tight end,” Webb said of the tight end, per the Baltimore Sun. “He’s a beast. He’s a big old mismatch, like a Calvin Johnson. We have to know where he is at all times and not let him break out.”
The Ravens will attempt to replicate on Monday night what the Bengals were able to do last week against the tight end, holding Graham to three catches for 29 yards.
“The Bengals got their hands on Jimmy Graham a lot to slow him down,” Ravens safety Will Hill said. “They pressed him at the line. And they mixed up their zone and man, which you have to do against him. They got a lot of pressure. They kept Brees off-balance. They hit the quarterback.”
