Chicago Bears: Earth-shattering UCF OLB Shaquem Griffin is a flawless fit

Chicago Bears: Earth-shattering UCF OLB Shaquem Griffin is a flawless fit

Griffin did it again Sunday when he ran the fastest 40-yard dash by a linebacker at the combine - 4.38 seconds.

When it came time for the bench press, Griffin strapped on a prosthetic left-hand and proceed to knock out 20 reps of 225 pounds.

Though it seems illogical that a player with only one arm could be an effective defender, Griffin has adapted wonderfully, using his forearm to fend off opponents.

Shaquem is now projected as a 5th or 6th round pick in April's NFL Draft. "If I feel this good doing the bench press, I can't wait to see how I am tomorrow".

"I've had people doubt me my whole life, and I know that there are a lot of kids out there with various deformities or birth defects or whatever labels people want to put on them, and they're going to be doubted, too". One hand or not, Griffin is ready to make an impact immediately for any team willing to give him the chance.

"I got goose bumps watching him, " NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. He was really good on tape. If I drop the ball, it's because I have one hand, not because of anything else, even if people with two hands drop the ball.

Stunning doesn't begin to describe what we're seeing from Griffin, who has completely captivated the the pro football world.

Griffin is attempting to answer that question resoundingly in the affirmative.

"People talk about what I can't do and what I can't accomplish", he said.

In his final two college seasons, Griffin totaled 18.5 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss.

"At the end of the day, you have to show what you can do".

Griffin is expected to be drafted at some point during the three-day event, but the later rounds are most likely. I got a few interceptions against some slots.

"I always tell everybody, if I can inspire one, they can inspire one more, and I can inspire a thousand later", he said.
