What had Graham sold on Glennon

Bills WR T.J. Graham decided he wanted to go to college wherever Mike Glennon was headed after the two became fast friends at various summer football camps throughout high school. In a recent appearance on the John Murphy Show, Graham relayed a story about what completely had him sold on Glennon as his quarterback.

“Mike Glennon is the reason I went to N.C. State,” said Graham. “I knew him from 2007 and camps and stuff and I remember telling him I was going wherever he was going. That relationship started because of an overthrown ball.

“In high school I had a problem where nobody could throw me the ball. My junior year in high school I actually played quarterback because no one could throw the ball deep enough to get the ball to me. So what was the point of me being out there? So I decided to throw the ball to them.

“Coming into one camp I was running a route and my coach said, ‘Run a post route.’ And I’m thinking I’m going to run the route as fast as I can. I want to show off. So I ran as fast as I could and Mike overthrew me and I stopped as soon as the ball hit the ground. I looked back at him with wide eyes and an open mouth and I think it was love at first sight after that. He’s got a big arm and being a speed guy you love to see that. It’s something you salivate for.”

Glennon has been forecast as a late first or early second-round pick.
