The Shore Sports Network football staff of Kevin Williams, Matt Harmon, Ed Sarluca, and Bob Badders are back with their 2017 weekly picks in Shore Conference football action.

We will also have a guest picker each week. This week's guest picker is former Brick Memorial tight end Garrett Graham, who starred at the University of Wisconsin and played in the NFL with the Houston Texans.

Graham is a 2005 graduate of Brick Memorial High School where he was an All-State tight end who helped the Mustangs capture the 2003 NJSIAA Central Jersey Group IV championship. Graham received a scholarship to play at the University of Wisconsin and was a three-year starter for the Badgers. He finished his career in Madison with 121 receptions for 1,492 yards and 16 touchdowns. Graham was selected as an All-Big Ten tight end as a senior when he had 51 catches for 624 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior.

The Houston Texans selected Graham with the 118th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Graham played six seasons with the Texans and had his best season in 2013 when he had 49 receptions for 545 yards and five touchdowns. During Week 11 of the 2012 season, Graham posted career highs in receptions (8), yards (82) and touchdowns (2) in a 43-37 overtime win over Jacksonville.

Graham signed with the Denver Broncos in April of 2016 but suffered a career-ending shoulder injury before playing in a game for the Broncos. Graham concluded his NFL career with 100 receptions for 1,059 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Graham and his wife Ericka live in Houston where he is an avid golfer and planning his post-football career.
