The article reports that Graham can play running back or fullback, and he's getting the chance to be a regular contributor on special teams as a kick returner. Graham has the quickness to be an impact runner. He's a little small, but he hits the hole hard, sheds tackles well and tends to gain an extra yard or two by falling forward as he's going down. The threat that Michael Pittman presents is helping the team sell its play-action fakes. Opponents must respect fakes to Pittman because he can break free for a big gain. He and the line are in better rhythm now, and Pittman's strength is allowing him to gain extra yards after contact.
