1-handed LB Griffin gets his shot, joins twin on Seahawks

Shaquem Griffin has become the first one-handed player to be drafted by a National Football League (NFL) team.

The fourth selection of Saturday's fifth round, Griffin was the 14th linebacker taken overall and eighth outside linebacker. I get to play alongside my brother and it's a blessing.

In four seasons at Central Florida, Griffin played in 39 games with 26 starts and had 175 tackles, 18 ½ sacks, two interceptions and 11 passes defensed.

So I stopped short of rooting for the Seahawks to draft Shaquill's twin brother right up until the very moment the Seahawks picked him.

"I think the thing that stood out to me was somebody told me they had sat down with (Shaquem) for five minutes and they gained the same inspiration from him as they did the first time they were able to sit down with John Wooden", Schneider said. I'm not anxious about where I go, what time I get picked or what team picks me, as long as I get a chance to get to a practice, I'm going to show everybody what I can really do'. I couldn't breathe. I didn't know how to talk.

Griffin showed up at the NFL Combine, ran the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.38) for a linebacker in 15 years and then put on a prosthetic left hand and bench-pressed 225 pounds 20 times as wide-eyed NFL coaches, scouts and executives looked on.

His proud sibling, who was selected by the Seahawks in the third round previous year, said he did not cry on his own draft day but when he heard about Shaquem's success he was unable to hold back the tears.

"He was just so expressive and so open to tell his story and tell what this opportunity meant to him in a way that moved us all", Carroll said.

Shaquem Griffin provided one of the biggest stories of the 2018 NFL Draft when it came to a conclusion on Saturday.

Griffin is appreciative of all the support, but said he's not interested in being remembered just as a feel-good story, he wants to make a real impact on the field.

"I'm glad they made this happen", the elder of the twins continued.
