Shaquem Griffin steals the show on day three of the NFL Draft

Shaquem Griffin steals the show on day three of the NFL Draft

The 22-year-old can be seen speaking on the phone to the Seahawks in the family living room on Saturday while thanking them for the good news and tearily embracing his brother. Shaquill Griffin, who started 11 games at cornerback for the Seahawks this past season and he was a third-round selection a year ago, the No. 90 overall pick.

When the Seattle Seahawks selected linebacker Shaquem Griffin in the fifth round of the 2018 National Football League draft, the praise for Griffin reached a new level.

The twin brothers will link up at Seattle.

I don't see it as a handicap and I have never looked at it that way, said Shaquem. "I'm just glad I was one of the selected few to be here".

"I don't want to be a guy who's just a feel-good story", he said. He was an All-AAC selection twice and was named the AAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2016.

Shaquill advised his brother continue pushing, now that he has reached the next level. Only Michigan and USC have longer streaks, both extended to 80 years during the first two days of the draft. After seeing Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier gingerly walk to the podium to announce the Steelers first round pick, it made me cringe.

Not all the good news for Jackson is on the field. "It doesn't say anything other than we got better as a football team". On tape, the Ravens saw Brown consistently control defensive linemen, knock them down and play to the whistle.

Despite his birth defect, Shaquem loved playing American football from a young age, and said he was determinged to show that he was "not just a fell-good story" but a serious player in his own right.

Speaking prior to the draft, the 22-year-old from the University of Central Florida had said: "A lot of people are asking, 'Are you anxious about where you're going to go in the draft?"

RENTON, Wash. - Shaquem Griffin had walked away from his cellphone, on his way to use the restroom, when it buzzed.

One more punter, Logan Cooke of Mississippi State, was chosen by Jacksonville, and the only placekicker taken was Jason Sanders of New Mexico by the Dolphins.

Hurst was diagnosed with a heart condition at the combine, and even though he was eventually cleared by doctors to work out with no limitations, several teams were scared off by the issue.

Griffin's college coach, Scott Frost, tweeted "About time", after the pick was made.
