We discuss transport properties of graphene related to the resonant scattering from impurities and defects. Two different models describing defects in the bulk of graphene or at the graphene surface are used for the calculation of self energy of electrons scattered from short-range impurities or defects. The results of numerical calculations demonstrate a resonant character of resistance. In the case of neutral impurities or defects the scattering also leads to a resonant decrease of the spin relaxation time.
