i think the senior bowl is on the nfl network. i don't get it. is there anyone who has the nfl network who can give word as to BG's performance?

He's got a sack (on Jarrett Brown), he drilled Tebow on the first play, he got sucked in on a reverse once, and he showed great contain on a pitch to Stafon Johnson.
Overall, he's been BG. Great player whose stock is on the rise. He's a lock for the first round at this point.
He just picked up another sack and forced a fumble. Simple put: he's been a beast!!
has tebow looked bad (please say yes)?
All of the QBs look pretty terrible. Tebow tried a little run earlier on and was brought down immediately.
Tebow came to Mobile with a chance to prove he can be an effective NFL quarterback, but if he could go back in time he would likely choose not to come to the Senior Bowl. Tebow did show good arm strength, handled the media frenzy well and even played through a case of strep throat, but he also put all of his weaknesses on display in a setting that did nothing but magnify them. In a group of merely adequate quarterback prospects Tebow ranked near the bottom and we walk away from Mobile believing he might never be an NFL quarterback. He will have to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up to have a chance , and we cannot remember one NFL quarterback who ever had to retool his entire game before finding success in the NFL. Teams that might have been considering Tebow in the late first or somewhere in the second round now have to re-evaluate. We have not spoken to a single talent evaluator who believes Tebow can develop into the kind of quarterback Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford or Joe Flacco is right now. The learning curve is just too steep in almost every area. We cannot find a way to give him any higher than a third-round grade, and even then we envision him as nothing more than a Wildcat or short-yardage quarterback who will maybe move to H-back. Overall, Senior Bowl week could not have gone worse from an on-the-field standpoint.
At least he got to make all of the other players' lives better by spending time with them.
Tebow just got stripped on a 3rd-4 and the North recovered. He's had a few decent passes, but really, Dan LeFevour has looked way better to me.
I'm no scout, though.
He just got another sack, forcing a fumble. Yeah boy
The color guy has really drilled a few players, but has had nothing but praise for BG, saying something like, "Brandon Graham has helped himself this week as much as anyone here."
He is looking very, very good. The announcer was saying that he would be a good fit for Gunther Cunningham, who has been coaching him all week, and the Lions. Sadly for the Lions, BG could go between the Lions' first and second picks.
Sadly for the Lions but good for Graham.
That's a good thing..
I would feel really bad for BG if he ended up at the Lions.
BG will not make it past the middle of the 1st round if he keeps this up.
On the other hand, mesko hasn't looked as good as he did during the season
The Space Emperor just wants to keep Al Davis from drafting him in the top ten.
His spaceship is parked in Western Hamtramck, so he's got to stay in the Detroit area.
ESPN's Todd McShay had high praise of Brandon Graham citing his quick adaption to new defensive schemes, multiple defensive positions and 100% hustle at this particular camp and 2009 season. A "Belichick type player."
These are the days I wish I didn't get rid of DirecTv.
I didn't miss the Insight Bowl, however.
They showed some clips of him dominating guys during practice during the week and had some pretty high praise for him during those clips, too.
I read what I pasted below on TomVH's Twitter - he retweeted and quoted Feldman who based on his who seems to be watching the game:
TomVH RT @BFeldmanESPN Was there a better defensive player who played on a worse D than Michigan's Brandon Graham? wow hes been impressive.

Wish I could watch him dominate!
I've noticed the LT from UMass moving early on a lot of snaps.
He has moved himself right into the middle of the first round or better! He is a real beast!
Brandon Graham is really really ridiculously good at playing the game of football.
he's currently drawing double teams at the senior bowl
3 sacks on the game plus the forced fumble
Graham is everywhere. he's being double-teamed, he's missing sacks by one step only because someone else is there, forcing Tebow out of the pocket and yet almost catches up to him upfield. he's playing out of his mind, could be defensive MVP of the game if they have one.
Showed his game highlights and gave credit to his history in track and running. Flat out said he's willing to go anywhere on the field. Said he wants to go back in and get one big play because he wants MVP. Cracked the announcers up and just looked really positive. They rattled off his stats and they include TFLs nobody even mentioned yet. Will report in if he gets the MVP.
punts (physically) from the 40 and puts it to the 15 for a fair catch. 45 yd punt. looked like he was just going through the motions
just flushed Zach Robinson out of the pocket, gave him a 3 yd lead and chased him down. then he just got blatantly held to prevent the sack. he's playing lights out.
Mesko did that? He IS an emperor!
i think graham has been on the field for every turnover except one that the North has executed.
Refreshing to hear a well spoken football player. I love Dhani, but I wouldn't mind if Myron had his own travel show as well.
named the Senior Bowl MVP of the Game
BG is MVP
MVP! MVP! Glad to see it, but sad to see his last pass rush in the Winged Helmet.
The only reason I watched was to see how BG would do. Awesome, dominating performance. It's nice to see him get the recognition he deserves. Go Blue!
