Shaquem Griffin smashes records, leaves National Football League in disbelief at draft work-outs

In 2014, he ran a 4.52, which wouldn't be fast enough to beat Griffin's first 40-yard dash time, but would beat Griffin's second time of a 4.58. He recently penned this open letter to National Football League executives, sharing a bit of his backstory and candidly discussing how doubt motivates him.

Shaquem Griffin was projected before the combine to be at best a mid-round pick.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Griffin was four years old when doctors amputated his left hand as the result of a birth defect known as amniotic band syndrome.

Despite having just one hand, he kept up with his twin brother on and off the field.

"I thought I was gonna walk over here and there were gonna be like three people", Griffin told reporters.

Not after becoming the talk of this combine. "I didn't know I had it in me".

And Griffin showed up and showed out at the combine and completed 20 reps in the 225-pound bench press with a prosthetic device clamped to the weight bar. Primetime wanted to give him a shout out for his blazing fast 40, and his incredible bench press and the moment was nearly too much for him to handle. He even became a sought-after college football player, even without a left hand -a feat that made Griffin a standout even though he still faces concerns from scouts over the impairment. "I mean, I'm shaking all over the place and the bar is falling, and I can't lift 45 pounds". I ain't feel like I needed to stop.

Produced by Clean Slate Films and presented by KriArj Entertainment and Kyta Productions, " Pari " releases on Friday. Apart from this, Anushka Sharma is busy with the shoot of her next film, "Sui Dhaaga: Made in India".

"I literally choked up a little bit watching him do that and I can't wait to watch him tomorrow".

"I'm planning on doing both linebacker and DB drills", Griffin said. Don't set limits for me, because when I wake up in the morning and I brush my teeth and I look at myself in the mirror, it's only me that I see in the mirror.

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 hope I inspire a lot (of people)", Griffin said. "I feel really good hearing that from them".

As his number of reps just kept going, the crowd got more and more shell-shocked.

"That was an awesome feeling, and it makes you enjoy it that much more".
