Shaquem Griffin Is An Absolute Beast

Shaquem Griffin, best known as the one-armed linebacker from Central Florida, has been cranking out highlight after highlight throughout this week’s NFL combine. He just ran a 4.38 40 yard dash, breaking the record for a linebacker. If he was a running back, he’d be the second fastest in his class; just incredible.

On Saturday, Griffin banged out 20 reps in the bench press, more than anybody could have imagined. He reps out 225 lbs with the use of a prosthetic like most bros at the gym could only wish.

Griffin’s story is an amazing tale of perseverance and grit. He wrote a great article for The Players’ Tribune where he discusses some of the trials and tribulations that have brought him to this point. I highly recommend giving it a read, you won’t regret it. Going into draft season he was viewed as a third day pick, but after his performance this weekend I have to think that he’ll be gone by the end of the 3rd round. Griffin is truly a feel good story and any team will be lucky to have him. Roll the highlights.
