Graham Makes ESPN Insider's List

For ESPN Insider, Pro Football Focus identified the most improved players across the NFL in several different categories, ranging from run-blocking skills to overall passing accuracy.

Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham, who posted 65 receptions for 923 yards and six touchdowns in his second season in Seattle, was listed as the most-improved player in contested catches and a runner-up for the most-improved deep-ball receiver behind Tennessee's Rishard Matthews.

Graham's first season in Seattle was solid, if not up to the standards we had come to expect from his prolific time in New Orleans with Drew Brees. This season, highlighted by that incredible performance against Buffalo, when he had two touchdowns with defenders draped over him, his PFF grade rose from 80.6 to 85.0.
