Shaquem Griffin and Josh Allen among winners at NFL Combine in Indianapolis

Shaquem Griffin and Josh Allen among winners at NFL Combine in Indianapolis

Former UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin had an outstanding collegiate career despite only having one hand, and his success didn't stop at the NFL Combine.

Shaquill Griffin actually did 17 repetitions in the bench press previous year, but Shaquem will have a tall order to top his brother's 40-yard dash time.

The only time he uses a prosthesis is when he is lifting weights so Griffin put on the prosthesis and settled under the bar Saturday in Indianapolis for the bench press.

Griffin projects as an National Football League linebacker, but he's also willing to play defensive back and already has experience as a college safety.

He was born with a deformed left hand that was amputated when he was 4 years old.

Shaquem Griffin is taking the NFL Scouting Combine by storm, and continues to defy the odds despite his significant physical disadvantage. Forget about the deformity, or whatever you want to call what he has. I think that'll get bumped up.

Griffin and his twin brother, Shaquille, both played football for the UCF Knights together. Everything he's done on and off the field should have him locked in as a top-100 player in this year's draft. He blitzed. At the Senior Bowl workouts, he played linebacker, safety and defensive line. "Let's go! And I just started cranking them out". I got a few interceptions against some slots. But the truth is, majority look at him the same way people have looked at him most of his life: as a guy with one hand.

"I hope I inspire a lot", Griffin said. But at the end of the day, it's not my choice. It motivates me to do more and keep pushing when you've got guys all over the place, the top in the country, and they're proud of me. He could be projected as a fifth or sixth round draft pick.

Griffin made a joking reference to that perception when he stepped to the podium his official interview at the Combine Saturday, saying "I thought I was going to walk over here and there were going to be like three people here".

"If I can inspire one, and they can inspire another and (soon we'll) inspire a thousand", Griffin said.
