The 23-year-old CB was a fan favorite on the Chicago Bears until an injury occurred during training camp that shortly after prevented Graham from playing in preseason, being waived yet maintaining on the team’s practice squad.
The former Oregon Duck was drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft during the 6th round at 228th overall by the Chicago Bears franchise.
Chicago Bears CB Thomas Graham Jr. had one of the best rookie debuts of 2021 on MNF:
🔸 90.7 @PFF grade
🔸 3 PBU
🔸 1 passing stop
🔸 10 yds allowed (0 1st downs)
Smart, balanced and plays the catch point really well. Should've gone waaaay earlier than Round 6 in the draft. pic.twitter.com/wZPisS8Z5j
