GS: 8 | GP: 16 | Snaps: 805 Season in review: When Graham, who had been a special teams standout for the Chicago Bears, signed with the Ravens last spring, he said he came to Baltimore because it presented an opportunity for him to prove himself as a defender. He had a strong training camp, and after injuries to cornerbacks Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith, Graham got the opportunity he had been seeking. He joined the starting lineup in Week 10 and started every game the rest of the way, finishing with four interceptions, including playoffs. Signature moment: In the 38-35 divisional round victory over the Denver Broncos, Graham returned an interception for a touchdown in the first half. Then, late in overtime, he picked off Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning again, setting the stage for Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal in double overtime. Stat that stands out: 276 -- yards allowed by Graham in coverage in the playoffs, per Pro Football Focus. Pro Football Focus grade: + 3.9 overall | +3.1 against the run | -1.7 in coverage | +3.5 on special teams. Outlook for 2013 and beyond: Graham was one of the season's biggest surprises for the Ravens, filling into the starting lineup admirably after Webb tore his ACL. His emergence has made losing Cary Williams in free agency more bearable, but Graham will need to continue to play well in coverage in 2013. Webb might not be back to full strength when the season opens and Smith, a 2011 first-round pick, has yet to seize a starting spot. Graham should prepare to start. At the very least, he could be the nickel corner.
