The Linc - Brandon Graham and a nightmare scenario in round 2

Graham Wants To Make An Instant Impact - Philadelphia Eagles
"Never in a million years did I think Philadelphia was coming for me," Graham said. "That makes me feel very good and know that I have a lot of responsibility because you know if they're going to trade up for me then they're expecting a lot from me. I'm going to give them what they're looking for. I just appreciate the opportunity to be a Philadelphia Eagle."

Bob Ford: Bold strike: Reid and Roseman got the guy they had targeted | Philadelphia Inquirer | 04/23/2010
Whether they are ultimately right or wrong, the Eagles were able to aggressively alter the draft order Thursday night to get the player they targeted. Then they were able to catch a breath and enjoy one feature of the new NFL draft format by having nearly a full day to reset their draft board and plot a strategy for the second round and beyond. When the draft resumes Friday, the Eagles will hold a pair of second-round picks, including the fifth selection in that round.

It’s the fourth time since 2003 that the Eagles moved up in the draft – and they were able to do so while keeping both of their second-round picks (37th and 55th overall). "We wanted to keep our two twos," Reid said. "Those are two valuable picks right there." Reid sensed that another team – perhaps the Giants, who drafted defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul – wanted Graham. "We knew that they kind of liked him too," Reid said. "We knew that was a rough spot right in there. Denver moved back a couple spots with San Francisco. It was a sticky area."

Brandon Graham looked at his cell phone, the tether to his dream. It rang again at 8:50 p.m., as it had all day Thursday from well-wishers, but this time the area code said "215" and unlike the players he has faced throughout his football career, it knocked him back, slightly confused.
