Biography

Daniel Graham (born November 16, 1978 in Torrance, California) is an American football tight end who plays for the New England Patriots of the NFL.

Early years

At Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, Colorado, Graham won the Randy Brewer award, which was given to the school's most inspirational player. During his time there, he played the positions of tight end, outside linebacker, long snapper, and placekicker. As a senior, he caught 33 passes for 741 yards (22.45 yards per reception) and six touchdowns, and recorded 12 sacks and 29 total tackles in just seven games. He also lettered three times in basketball.

College career

Graham was a prolific receiver at Colorado, where he also started two games playing fullback during his freshman season before switching to tight end.

After his senior season, he was named First-Team All-American and won the John Mackey Award as the nation's best tight end. He finished his collegiate career with 106 receptions for 1,543 yards and 11 touchdowns.

NFL career

In the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft, the Patriots selected Graham out of the University of Colorado with the 21st overall choice.

Early in his career he was known for dropping too many passes and suffering apparent lapses of concentration. In his rookie season, Graham recorded 15 receptions for 150 yards, and one touchdown. He added four tackles on special teams.

Since then, he has blossomed as a receiver and blocker. In 2003, he started nine games and recorded 38 catches for 409 yards and four touchdowns. By 2004, Graham was fully integrated into the Patriots' system and became one of the better tight ends in the game. He had 30 receptions for 364 yards and seven touchdowns. The Patriots won the Super Bowl at the end of each of these seasons.
