Okay, Graves may be tanky in the early, but once you reach late game he is easily focused and killed. I don't know how many times I've been playing Graves with heavy burst damage and not been able to use it in a team fight (where yes, it does work great) because I get knocked, stunned and focused out the ears...
Yeah, Graves does start the game better than some other champs, but those champs are the other squishy AD's who don't start with the armor. But in the end, they are all squishy and focused easily and killed.
