Indianapolis — Miami tight end Jimmy Graham played only one season of football for the Hurricanes after finishing his basketball career.
He’s had to block Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan and during his basketball days, he tried to outrebound Georgia Tech center Gani Lawal.
“They were both very different,” Graham said. “Derrick Morgan is a very elusive defensive end. Lawal is a long, long player. Very different, but I attacked it the same way.”
Graham makes a point that he’s physical enough make in the NFL as a tight end and notes that he fouled out often as a basketball player.
