Bennett has Graham as his second leading candidate to rush for had ,000 yards in the conference behind only Cincinnati's Isaiah Pead. That's probably where I'd slot Graham, but I might be tempted to put him first. Pead only rushed for 1,029 yards last year and I could see Graham topping that with a full load. Pead was the team's primary rusher and Graham had nearly as many carries in a supplementary role to Lewis.
Graham rushed for about 1/2 a yard less per carry, but had two more touchdowns and could get into a pretty good rhythm as the starter. If he stays healthy, I see him as having a big workload next season.
Bennett even concedes that Graham could have a better year, as he slotted Graham first among running backs in handicapping conference Player of the Year honors.
