This has been quite the week for Thomas Graham Jr.
The former Oregon Ducks three-year starting corner began the week turning heads at practice leading up to the 2021 Senior Bowl on Saturday, January 30. On game day, Graham and the National Team defeated the American team, 27-24. You can watch the highlights here.
That exposure, along with his talent, earned Graham Jr. an invitation to the 2021 NFL Combine:

According to the Senior Bowl site, “The Reese’s Senior Bowl has had 93 total players and 40 selected in the first three rounds each of the past two years, including 10 first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The 93 figure represents nearly 40% of the total draft these past two years.”
However, the beginning of 2021 is still met with uncertainty due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
So this 2021 NFL Combine will look a tad different.
On January 18, the NFL announced that there will be no in-person workouts but rather individual workouts will happen during pro days on the players’ respected college campuses.
In addition to the workout and drill portion of the Combine, the interviews and the psychological testing portion will also be conducted virtually.

Congrats to TG4!
