During the course of OTAs, we started the buzzmeter feature to track which Eagles were getting the most ink in the offseason. On offense, it was Jeremy Maclin and on defense... Brandon Graham.

But that was OTAs. The pads weren't on, there was no hitting... So its tough to know that much, especially about defensive players. Fast forward to today, the pads are on, practice is live and it appears as though Graham picked up right were be left off.

"He's a competitor, man. He's being challenged and he worked his butt off this offseason," said defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. "When you look into his eyes, you can see that there's a fire there. I guess maybe he wants to prove you guys wrong. He's here for business."

After the jump we've got some tweets from practice about Graham, who took over as the starting LDE yesterday when Jason Babin went down with a calf strain.
