That's one more than his twin brother, Shaquille, managed at last year's combine before the Seattle Seahawks selected the speedy cornerback in the third round of the National Football League draft.

"I feel like I could just start curling 225 right now and I'm pretty sure come tomorrow, it's going to be adrenalin just going insane".

Griffin was born with a deformed left hand caused by Amniotic Band Syndrome and the hand was amputated when he was 4 years old.

Seahawks' cornerback and four-time Pro Bowler Richard Sherman tweeted that if Griffin "doesn't get drafted in the first two days the system is broken".

"I got chill bumps watching him do 20 reps", said NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock. Come (Sunday), I'm pretty sure the adrenaline will be insane. Well, he just lit the NFL Scouting Combine on fire. I'm never going to accept limitations.

While Griffin's performances caught the eye of players and coaches, the results of the NFL Combine are always to be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt.

We're sure that wherever Shaquem Griffin lands fans from all across the country will be rooting for him as he shares his inspiring story. He said he expects to do both linebacker drills and defensive back drills, but said he would do both at his pro day if he is too worn out to do double duty Sunday. Griffin spent practice time playing at three positions on defense - defensive end, linebacker and safety - at the Senior Bowl and played very well in the game. He consistently showed his speed to the ball, and numerous league's personnel evaluators said they believed he could contribute in an NFL defense, especially as a situational pass-rusher. Doesn't matter - I'm going to get it in, though. "So it felt good to throw up 20 and show I can do way more than five".

"I would love to play with this guy!", Broncos linebacker Von Miller said on Twitter.
