That LB from UCF just ran a 4.3. Trade up and get him by any means.

Its a great story and i really hope the kids makes a career in football. But a first round pick,its a no from me.

He very small for a LB, and its hard enough making the leap to pro without his disability. 2nd round maybe,3rd yeah take the shot. First round when your not oucking again till round 3. No

Shaquem Griffin wowed everyone at the NFL combine. Then he wowed them again. The linebacker from the University of Central Florida, whose left hand was amputated when he was four due to a congenital condition, was a late invite to the event despite earning AAC defensive player of the year and Peach Bowl defensive MVP honors. On Saturday, he stole the show by putting on a prosthetic left hand and bench pressing 225 lbs. 20 times to the astonishment and adulation of anyone watching. His goal was six reps; his previous personal best was 11. “I felt the energy from everybody," Griffin said afterward. "My adrenaline was going through the roof.”​ It was amazing.

Then Griffin came back Sunday and ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any linebacker since 2003, at 4.38 seconds. The sprint made Pete Carroll double-take while Antonio Brown tweeted "sheeeeeeeeeesh​" and Richard Sherman claimed if Griffin "doesn’t get drafted in the first two days the system is broken."

Productive in college and the star of the combine. To get a sense of what comes next for Griffin, I solicited the informed opinions of a few MMQB writers. Here's what they had to say about where Griffin's draft stock now sits.

I have no issue round 4+
The way people were talking was round 1 or 2 which is where i said no.

A 225lb LB will struggle enough as is.
Maybe he could slot into that LB/SS role that Deon Buchanan played at Arizona.
