But what happened in Indy won’t make it any easier.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that two scouts clocked Griffin at 4.38 seconds and another had him in at 4.40 seconds. Born with a birth defect, his left hand was amputated when he was four years old.
Regardless of how many hands he has, Griffin is simply a dominant football player and an impressive human being, and every single NFL fan should be begging their team to draft him.
Griffin’s performance could well have improved his draft stock, with projections before the Combine that he would be taken in the middle to late rounds when the NFL Draft is held in late April. “If I feel this good right now, I can’t wait to see how I am tomorrow”.
“People didn’t think I’d be able to do it”.
“I remember, my brother told me a year ago, what you put in is what you’ll get out of it”, Griffin said this week. “I mean, my adrenaline was going through the roof and I didn’t feel like I needed to stop”.
Griffin said Saturday all he wants is a chance.
He began pumping his arms like pistons, and the crowd started to get revved up. Griffin is an inspiring story, but he’s also doing well alongside his linebacker peers in Indianapolis.
Guess who was impressed?
Griffin uses the hashtag #againstallodds on Twitter.
“I felt the energy from everybody”.
Shaquem Griffin’s 4.38 came in his first attempt and he posted a 4.58 in his second run.
“I mean, it’s incredible”, Shaquem said.
Griffin, who wasn’t invited to the National Football League combine until after the Senior Bowl, blistered the 40 in 4.38 seconds on Sunday at the National Football League combine. Ezekiel Elliott. Those are just some of the names that ran a slower time than Griffin. He blitzed. At the Senior Bowl workouts, he played linebacker, safety and defensive line.
What is clear is Griffin is killing the pre-draft process.
“Said Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, “@Shaquemgriffin you are straight balling man! “Lol “If you ball u get the call” @nflnetwork #GamedayPrime #Truth”. However, his output on Saturday was more than three times what Griffin had set out to do at the beginning of the competition.
