Ta’Quon Graham – DT
Atlanta Falcons star defensive tackle Grady Jarrett has been looking for a guy to line up next to him and help dominate ever since he entered the league, it finally seems like he might have that player in Ta’Quon Graham.
Some fans might be wondering how a player who has yet to record a sack in his NFL career is a rising star, but trust me, he is.
Graham has been making plays next to Jarrett in a quiet manner that has not received much attention. His run defense has been excellent and he has been able to pressure the quarterback, but just hasn’t been able to get that elusive sack.
There is much more to playing the defensive tackle position than just recording sacks and tackles for loss. Graham has been near the top of the league in run-stop win rate, even higher than Grady Jarrett.
If you keep an eye on him over the next few weeks then you will see some great defensive tackle play. He is a legit rising star.
