4. Jimmy Graham
Even though Jimmy Graham snagged 10 touchdown receptions last season with the Seattle Seahawks, he had a down season by every other measure. He only caught 57 passes for 520 yards and a 59.4 percent catch percentage. Do not expect to see those numbers from Graham again.
Rodgers will look to Graham early and often on all parts of the field. Graham is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. Even though he’s 31-years-old, he’s still too fast for linebackers and far too big for cornerbacks. Mike McCarthy and Joe Philbin will surely come up with a lot of creative ways to use him.
Speaking of creativity, even though Graham is listed as a tight end, expect him to play more of a receiver’s role. Especially considering the Packers lack of depth behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, Graham will likely see himself lining up in the slot more often than not. This will lead to a huge Rodgers-to-Graham connection and career numbers for the “tight end.”
