The future is now for New Orleans Saints rookie Jimmy Graham

"Not quite," said the New Orleans Saints' rookie tight end, appearing somewhat miffed at the questioner. "Can you do it?"
That's the point.

The number of people walking the planet capable of dunking a football over a goal post, wearing full pads after having played nearly a full game of football, is limited. The number that can do it while rotating their body a full turn might be limited to one hand.

"You see his skill set, and you see him continue to make plays," Saints Coach Sean Payton said. "Jimmy Graham and his learning curve have happened very quick. He's done a very good job. ... As a coach, it's exciting to see his development."

When the Saints selected Graham in the third round of last April's NFL Draft, it was assumed he was the club's tight end of the future.
Well, the future is now for Graham.

The Rest of the Story.

This kid is special. He has won me over.

Jimmy has made so much more of an impact, way earlier than i expected him to.
I knew the guy would be good, but i didn't know he would become such a threat so quickly, a rookie who played football for only one year of college, is rapidly becoming the most dangerous part of the most dangerous Offence.

Big fan of this kid! As long as he stays healthy, I don't worry about this position! And I do believe Shockey is helping him as much as possible. That's the really cool part. Drew Brees calling him a "freak of nature", nah, that's just part of a winning Saints combination.

Graham has talent. He's one of those atheletic guys that would probably be good at even badmitten. His speed, size and agility fits right in with what Sean Payton likes to do. If he finds a way to keep his eyes on Brees and find space in the middle of the field, he will have a golden career with the Saints over the next several years. He looks good in Black&Gold and I hope he stays healthy and wears it a long time.

Great hands, our future in N.O.

Jimmy Graham looked good at camp and impressed everybody from the start. We are lucky to have several good tight ends and Shockey is mentoring the young man nicely. The future is now....I love it.
