Shaquem Griffin drafted by Seahawks

Emotional moment one-handed NFL linebacker Shaquem Griffin hears he'll be drafted by the Seattle Seahawks to play with his twin brother Shaquill

Shaquem Griffin drafted by Seahawks

Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic Shaquem got drafted by the Seattle Seahawks and will be reunited with his twin brother Shaquill, but can somebody explain to me how a perennial bad actor like Florida Gators wide receiver Antonio Callaway can get drafted ahead of a perennial good guy and great player like Shaquem?

Griffin was born with amniotic band syndrome - which caused his left hand not to fully develop, and forced him to have the hand amputated as a child.

"Welcome to the family", the Seahawks tweeted Saturday with Griffin's signature hashtag "#AgainstAllOdds". "So every day I made sure to mention my brother about something, even was just, 'hey, man, my brother got a good workout in, his backpedal is looking smooth every day.'".

How long will the Cubs be without Kris Bryant?
Bryant has reportedly been working in the batting cage the past few days, with the Cubs' training staff monitoring him. Brandon Morrow got his 6th save of the year and he has yet to allow a run in nine innings of work on the year.

It was a long wait for Griffin, but the former University of Central Florida linebacker finally got the call from the Seahawks with the news that he would be the 141st overall selection in the 2018 National Football League draft's fifth round. But that never stopped Griffin from doing everything his friends were doing, especially his older twin brother (by one minute) Shaquill. He said 'Answer the phone.' He's like, 'I know the area code; answer the phone.' I'm getting myself together trying to answer the phone.

Added Shaquill: "I was going to be happy no matter what team that gave him the opportunity".

I don't know if I've ever been in a more inspirational interview that we do at the combine than that one.

Griffin showed up at the NFL Combine, ran the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.38) for a linebacker in 15 years and then put on a prosthetic left hand and bench-pressed 225 pounds 20 times as wide-eyed NFL coaches, scouts and executives looked on.

Getting picked was a dream come true for Griffin as he joins his twin brother, Shaquill Griffin, who was drafted by Seattle in the third round previous year.

"It's awesome just to be here right now, I couldn't ask for more, " Shaquem Griffin said.

Pak Foreign Minister disqualified from parliament
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has lost another of its leading figures, taken down once again by the superior judiciary. Ex-PM Nawaz Sharif was also disqualified from office under the same provision last July in the Panama Papers case.

So I anxious I felt too strongly about Shaquem to have an objective view of his value as a potential draft pick. Carroll said the intent is to start Griffin at weakside linebacker and let him use his speed in different areas on the field. He was an All-AAC selection twice and was named the AAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2016.
