  • Shaquem Griffin

The story of Shaquem Griffin may be focused on the adversity he has overcome and his reunion with his brother Shaquill, but at the end of the day the Seahawks got themselves a new linebacker - the first one they've drafted since 2014.

Griffin not only looks an outstanding player, but his philosophy and attitude should see the 22-year-old establish himself as a fan favourite in Seattle. And they continued throughout this whole process to let me know how much they loved my brother, how much they loved my family.

The Seahawks envision Griffin contributing as a pass-rushing outside linebacker and on special teams. "I was trying to get the words out, but I couldn't talk", he said. They became stars at Central Florida, Shaquill entering the draft last year while Shaquem returned for his senior year.

Klopp backs Gerrard for Rangers manager
Klopp joked: "As long as he is not the Everton manager, or Man United, then we would still help him if he has questions". I'm sure he will do a bit of due diligence and he has got plenty of people he can turn to for advice.

Shaquill, who was a third-round pick by the Seahawks in 2017, became a starter in his rookie season. I just couldn't hold it, ' he told ESPN.

Added Shaquill: "I was going to be happy no matter what team that gave him the opportunity". "But I knew how it was going to go". He made headlines during the NFL Scouting Combine when he recorded the fastest 40-yard dash time of all linebackers, running the dash in 4.38 seconds. He joins his twin brother Shaquill, who was drafted in the third round past year by Seattle. "I'm glad they made this happen". This isn't just a feel-good story, but something that should make everyone feel great.

"It's tough thinking that you're one of the top players in the draft and having good tape and everything like that, just having to wait", Hurst said.

It is not only on the field that Griffin proved himself to the franchise. "I want to be a football player, and a good one at that".

The footage then cuts to the siblings watching Shaquem's name being read out on the TV, at which point everyone else in the room bursts into whoops of celebration.

His play earned him a first team all-conference selection twice, and in 2016 he was the Defensive Player of the Year in the American Athletic Conference.
