Tears as one-handed player is drafted into NFL

Shaquem Griffin

Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic Shaquem got drafted by the Seattle Seahawks and will be reunited with his twin brother Shaquill, but can somebody explain to me how a perennial bad actor like Florida Gators wide receiver Antonio Callaway can get drafted ahead of a perennial good guy and great player like Shaquem?

Shaquem will become the team's weakside linebacker. "He is as fast as you can get as a linebacker", Carroll said.

"My brother kind of tackled me with my cellphone, saying 'Answer it, answer it!,' " Shaquem said.

At the National Football League combine in March the Californian ran the quickest 40-metre dash time in over 15 years while he also bench pressed a weight of 225 pounds 20 times with a prosthetic hand attached to the bar. But that never stopped Griffin from doing everything his friends were doing, especially his older twin brother (by one minute) Shaquill.

Giants select UTEP's Will Hernandez with second-round pick
There was speculation earlier in the offseason that Cleveland was considering Barkley with the first pick. Wah was Whitehall's starting running back in 2012, before Barkley took over.

His twin brother, Shaquill Griffin, was a third-round pick of the team a year ago and started 11 games at cornerback.

Shaquem Griffin spent two nights just steps away from the 2018 NFL Draft stage at AT&T Stadium, in the green room, wondering if his name would ever be called. "A lot of anxiety these few days, but I am ready to get up there and go to work and start something great".

Shaquem "overcame a tremendous amount by just believing in himself, and I think the belief of his brother in him, as well, which is obvious, was also part of all of that". He then had his left hand amputated when he was just 4.

"I want to be a football player, and a good one at that".

Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen , had something to say about West sharing the text message. After West posted part two of the text exchange, she posted again with a humorous tone.

Asked to confirm that he actually tackled his brother, Shaquill said, "Yes, I needed him to be focused".

Griffin starred at college level. Considered by many scouts to be a first-round talent, Hurst, fell all the way to the fifth round (140th overall) before being taken by the Raiders.

The Griffins decided not to return to the draft venue Saturday, instead waiting to hear the news at a nearby Arlington hotel. The excitement, it's insane because you're around so many great guys in that setting and you're in the green room and you're moving around and seeing how the anxiety is building up. "Magical stuff started happening", Shaquem said.

As for his health, "I'm ready to go right now". "I'm going to contribute the best way possible". "It was me making sure I was enjoying the moment that I was here in Dallas".
