Shaquem Griffin is the talk of the scouting combine and here’s where he may land in NFL draft.

INDIANAPOLIS – The guy who almost didn’t get an NFL scouting combine inviteended up rewriting part of its history. And along the way, Shaquem Griffinbecame the centerpiece of one of the biggest offseason stages in the NFL.

The All-American UCF linebacker – who suffered from Amniotic Band Syndrome and had to have his left hand amputated at 4 years old – ran a blazing 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash, marking the fastest time at his position in the history of the event. The NFL also added another remarkable twist: since official record-keeping began, Griffin’s time is the second-fastest of any player in league history weighing over 225 pounds. Only a hand-timed 4.37 seconds in 2005 from former Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick Matt Jones has proven faster. It’s also the only sub-4.4 second 40-yard dash for any linebacker in recorded history.
