I am excited to report that there is a 2009 CFL draft sleeper, who had an impressive Pro-day try out this past April 5th in LA,California. Sr. Defensive Tackle/Nose Guard Jermyah Graves, a USC transfer playing at Albany State University in Ga, exploded of the line, executing speedy L, and Horizontal drills and above average vertical jump. To be 300+lbs and move this quickly is certainly an athletic gift. It will be interesting to see who nabs him first the NFL or CFL. An underrated player of his caliber is an asset to any team. Run-stopper, football savvy and aggressive.

I have seen what this player can do, and quite frankly, the team that picks him will notice and vast improvement/addition to thier defensive line. As for the teams that don't, they don't know what they are missing. This boy has heart, determination, speed and strength with the force of a locolmotive. He's six feet tall, approximately 325 pounds--and quick?? Whats not to like?
