Transcript: T.J. Graham Conference Call

On his reaction to being picked by the Bills:

I'm very excited. It's something I worked for my whole life. I'm just going to enjoy the opportunity I have now with the Buffalo Bills.

On if he expected to be selected in the third round:

I spoke with some people and they suggested that this was the earliest I would go. You expect the worst in this situation, so getting the best that they told me is a pretty good thing. I am pretty excited about it.

On how much contact he had with the Bills prior to the draft:

I had a couple of meetings with them and talked with them a couple of times. It was a destination that I saw myself going to. I am really going to enjoy it.

On if he felt good about his meetings with the Bills:

Yes, I felt really good. The meetings went well, meeting the coaching staff and Coach Gailey.

On if he considers himself a slot receiver or an outside receiver:

Anywhere I can play. It does not really matter to me; anywhere I can get onto the field and contribute to the success of the offense.

On where he lined up at North Carolina State:

Outside or inside. It depended on the defensive match-up for that week.

On his experience returning kicks and punts:

I did both all four years in college. I finished my career as the career all-time leader in ACC for kickoff return yards. This past year I led the ACC in punt return yards. I have had success on both. There were years I was better here and there.

On having returned two punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns throughout his collegiate career:

Yeah. I wish I had more though.

On if he will be able to stretch the field at the NFL level:

My speed has translated to the track and I use that to run and excel in there. On the field, I can definitely stretch the field and make the defense have to play the full field instead of the short field. * *
