Brandon Graham Says He Can Be A Standout LinebackerBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Linebackers, News Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013
Eagles former number one draft pick defensive end/linebacker Brandon Graham has no idea what position he’ll be playing for Birds this year but he says it doesn’t matter right now because he can do whatever the Birds need him to do. Graham is eager to get ready and make a good impression to Chip Kelly when he gets on the field.
“I’m just excited because I don’t know if they really know what I can do and I know what I can do and I can’t wait to show them this year,” Graham said. “I’m excited about if I’m going to stand up or not. If I stand up, that’s cool, you can see more of the field and be able to drop and catch interceptions and stuff. I want to show that part of my game if I do do that.”
Graham knows how big of a season this is for him. He was coming on last year when he finally got on the field, but now he must prove himself to Chip Kelly and his staff. He’s also got to overcome the fact that he’s about he’s weighing 270 pounds and will need to lose more weight in order to improve his agility, so he can drop into the passing lanes as a linebacker.
“There’s been a lot of talk around a lot of things, but I don’t really know where they want to put me,” Graham said following his first official workout of the offseason at the NovaCare Complex. “All I know is wherever they put me, I’m going to go full-out.”
