Graham agrees to 5-year deal

The Eagles locked up their 13th draft pick late Thursday.
First-round choice Brandon Graham, of Michigan, also was the 13th overall pick in the draft. He agreed to terms on a 5-year contract and is expected to be available for the first full-squad practice Friday afternoon.
The 6-1, 279-pound Graham is expected to battle veterans Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp for snaps on the left side of the line.
Rookie third-round pick Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and rookie Ricky Sapp, the converted linebacker, also are going to get snaps coming off the edges.
Wide receiver Blue Cooper was cut to make room on the roster for Graham.
The Eagles shipped their first-round pick (24th overall) and a pair of third-round selections (Nos. 70 and 87) to Denver to move up and take Graham.
