Shaquill Griffin actually did 17 repetitions in the bench press previous year, but Shaquem will have a tall order to top his brother's 40-yard dash time.
Griffin ended up being the talk of Indianapolis, and beyond. NFLDraftScout.com's Dane Brugler seems to think Griffin may be in play to be selected in the top-100, which would be incredible for a prospect who wasn't initially invited to the combine. Here are a few scouting reports.

Shaquem Griffin just keeps surpassing expectations. 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'm never going to accept limitations. I didn't know I had it in me, but it came out.
After his performance at the combine, National Football League stars weighed in on social media.
"This is a legitimate football player", NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. "We're going to see how it goes [Sunday] and how I'm feeling after linebacker drills, see if I can take a break and come back and do DB drills or do DB drills at pro day".
He was 4 years old when doctors amputated his left hand a day after his mother found him in the kitchen attempting to cut off his jelly-like fingers, which were in scorching pain whenever he touched anything, the result of amniotic band syndrome, a congenital birth defect. If the time holds, it would be the fastest for a linebacker since 2003.
"If @Shaquemgriffin doesn't get drafted in the first two days the system is broken", Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman chimed in.
Griffin told reporters he's not just limited to playing linebacker. "Played well against high level competition". He also recorded an interception, three pass breakups, and nine QB hurries while recovering two fumbles and forcing two fumbles. "I'm proud of you man". I got the guys I'm here with hyping me up.
