So, after trying Ezreal on the free week, I've found my love - ADC. I've been thinking about getting ezreal, but Vayne or graves are equally good ADC's, I think.

What are some pro/cons about each, and, who is your preference?

Ezreal:

Pros:
Good burst
Good mobility with Arcane Shift
A poke with on hit effects and low mana cost
An attack speed buff/debuff for allies and enemies
Global ultimate

Cons:
All skillshot based
No CC
Spaming spells=mana problems
Has the pushing power of a little kid

Vayne:

Pros:
True damage with Silver bolts
Tumble allows for manual dodging and bonus damage
A crowd control ability
Ultimate allows stealth, increased chasing potential and more attack damage

Cons:
No real escape mechanism
Short-Medium ranged abilities
Can be easy to shut down sometimes

Graves:

Pros:
Amazing burst
Mobility and attack speed buff with Quickdraw
Tankiest AD-Carry with True Grit
Can push minion waves like no other
Smokescreen has a lot of uses

Cons:
Short attack range
May require you to push a lane if you want True Grit to keep stacking
No hard CC
Burst will do nothing late game


My preferred AD-Carry is Vayne because I tend to play with supports that are scary babysitters like Blitzcrank or Leona so I can more easily get to late game.

Yeah, I find Ezrea to hit a pretty small amount for an ADC, and Vayne and hit a good bit more.

if you plan on playing adc you should buy the top 3 atm (ez, corki, graves) all the mobility makes it easy to forgive poor positioning while learning

after you get used to those 3 you can start playing the intermediate ones like trist, ashe, and mf

then finally the kings of late game vayne and kog, who require perfect positioning or you get owned in 1 sec

Vayne seems interesting, especially her E but it makes me wonder.

Ezreal is the best AD Carry in the game right now, and AINEC.

Ofc, w nerf op, so don't expect this to be true in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, he fits into almost every team, goes well with every support, has almost no bad lane matchups... So hard to kill.. The list goes on and on about why Ez is so good.

What's so good about draven? I rarely see him in competitive play, or in normal matches, actually.

Pretty much what Operation V said about all those champs.

My favorite ADC is Vayne for sure, she just shreds everyone down to nothing, but she requires almost perfect positioning, or else you'll just get locked down and just die. That's why a lot of Vayne players take cleanse, and some will even build QSS with cleanse and flash, just because she really doesn't have much of an escape. Her E + Q if done right can get her out of a few things, but a lot of champions also have good gap closers, so it's just really hard for her to get away.

I like graves because he's just an overall strong champion, can trade pretty well, clear waves, and is more mobile than Vayne. He can also kite very well with Red buff and his quickdraw.

Ezreal is probably my least favorite, I don't know why, I just don't like him too much, mostly because I'm bad at skill shots I guess. Because if you can't land his Q he doesn't trade very well, but what I do like about him, is his mobility, he's a pretty safe ADC and his ulti can be pretty strong in a team fight. But of course, as said earlier, the W nerf will hit him pretty hard I think, and he won't be as strong as graves.

Also, you asked about Draven. Well, in my opinion, Draven is kinda a gimmick champion, he does a lot of early game burst damage, but if you can't get those kills early game, he's not really that great later on, and doesn't have much of an escape either. Even if you get those kills, his late game is still meh.. in my opinion.
