Shaquem Griffin steals show with bench press at National Football League combine

2018 NFL Draft: Shaquem Griffin throws up 20 bench press reps

For his next trick on Sunday he set the unofficial fastest 40-yard dash by linebacker - destroying the rest of the field with a time of 4.38 seconds.

Using a prosthetic, Griffin put up 225 pounds 20 times.

Shaquem Griffin is doing more with one hand than 99 percent of men can do with two.

Griffin was born with amniotic band syndrome, which eventually led to the amputation of his left hand at the age of four.

In fact, Griffin almost got left out of the combine entirely despite twice receiving All-ACC honors, and being named the ACC Defensive Player Of The Year in 2016. "I literally choked up a little bit watching him do that and I can't wait to watch him tomorrow".

No left hand, no problem for Shaquem Griffin. "If you need somebody who can cover - and not just tight ends, I can cover slots, too - you watch some film". "I feel really good hearing that from them". I still have the feet for it, and that's why I was able to be at the Senior Bowl and move and progress at each and every position. In two years with the Golden Knights, griffin posted 166 total tackles, 33.5 tackles for loss, 18.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Over the last several months, former Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin has been making headlines in the sports world, and that will not be changing anytime soon. "It felt good. I didn't know I had it in me, but I had it today". I want to show National Football League teams that, whatever you need help at, I'm the player. But the truth is, a lot of them look at him the same way people have looked at him most of his life: as a guy with one hand.

'Unbelievable! Can't no one stop what God has for you!' tweeted Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson about the feat.

As evidenced by the way they were cheering him on in the bench press, he's inspiring his fellow draft prospects at the combine.

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