Eagles’ Brandon Graham Ranked in Top Half of PFF Edge Rusher Rankings
Even though he doesn't always get a sack, Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham is still one of the best when it comes to rushing the passer.
The 6-foot-2 defensive end finished the season with 46 tackles, eight sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered one.
Graham was especially dominant in the first half of the season, racking up seven of his eight sacks in Philadelphia's first eight games.
As a result of his stellar play, Graham was ranked as one of the top edge rushers by Pro Football Focus for his play in 2020, coming in at No. 14 on the list.
Graham is one player whose sack totals at the end of his career won’t do justice to how disruptive he was as a pass-rusher. Since 2014, Graham ranks tied for 16th at the position in total sacks, but only Khalil Mack, Cameron Jordan and Von Miller have recorded more pressures than Graham has (445). Pair that with a league-high 88 tackles for loss or no gain against the run over that same span and you have one of the most well-rounded edge defenders in the game.
Graham, 33, had two multi-sack games in 2020, helping him earn a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster for the first-time in his career.
The team just signed Graham to a one-year contract extension back on March 15, meaning he will make $20 million over the next two seasons with the Eagles, who are hoping he continues to show up on these rankings.
