Cosell: Graham "the best all around defensive end in the draft"

Greg Cosell, an analyst from NFL Films, was a guest on 97.5 the fanatic yesterday to talk NFL Draft. If you've never heard him, Cosell has access to all the coaches tape and breaks down a ton of film. He actually was on well before the Eagles made their pick and was discussing a few possible Eagles targets. First, he said how he expected the Eagles to either take a defensive end or a corner/safety. He actually said that he really liked Earl Thomas and said that from all the tape he's seen he thought Thomas was a better player that Eric Berry. Then, the hosts asked him about defensive ends and whether he thought Jason Pierre-Paul or Derrick Morgan was the better player. His answer?

Overall the defensive end I like the most is Brandon Graham from Michigan. I think Brandon Graham has got the same body type as Dwight Freeney. Now he's not quite as explosive as Dwight Freeney, but I think he's the best all around defensive end in this draft. I would have Paul second and I would have Morgan third.

He said Morgan was a very energetic player, but doesn't make as many plays.
