The Ted Hendricks Foundation has unveiled the list of finalists for the 2009 Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award and Michigan's Brandon Graham is one of the seven standouts still eligible for the honor. The Wolverines' senior is the nation's leader in tackles for loss (26) and was named to the All-Big Ten first team by the conference coaches and media. His 20 tackles for loss in Big Ten play led the conference and was 5½ more than his closest competition. Graham also finished the regular season with 10½ sacks (top 15 nationally), 2 blocked punts and one touchdown off another blocked punt. The winner of the Hendricks Award will be announced on Dec. 9. Since the award's creation for the 2002 season, the Big Ten has claimed the Hendricks Award once when Michigan's LaMarr Woodley was honored in 2006.
