A rare prenatal condition prevented the fingers on the hand from fully developing. His hand was amputated at the age of 4.

Griffin, using a prosthetic on his left hand, shocked everyone by posting 20 reps Saturday. "Just from the standpoint of a football evaluator, he's a helluva player".

According to Fox News, "As a freshman, [Griffin] couldn't even lift the 45-pound bar, but then he was fitted with the prosthethic and his mom cried when he did his first pull-up".

The 20 reps were the most he's ever done.

Ten, 11 - this was his personal best.

His goal going in: at least six. "Hearing the crowd, having the juices flowing". "I felt it. I didn't know I had it in me, but it came out today". Him just saying five, five is me just warming up. It motivates me to do more and keep pushing when you've got guys all over the place, the top in the country, and they're proud of me.

It didn't stop him on Sunday either, as Griffin posted a 4.38 40-yard dash during his first run - the fastest time in his position group since the league started clocking times in 2003.

Whether he recognizes it or not, Griffin has become the story of this year's Combine.

Shaquem Griffin Is the Star of the NFL Combine

Shaquem Griffin's eyes widened as he stepped onto the podium this weekend inside the Indiana Convention Center.

"I watched his tape months ago and I was like, wow, " Mayock said. "I feel really good hearing that from them".

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? He's an energy giver. "Played well against high level competition".

Wherever Griffin ends up, writers and reporters are sure to follow.

"Back when I was eight years old, I played because I loved the game". JJ Watt, a three-time defensive player of the year, tweeted: "Shaquem Griffin killing it". That near-decision gets more insane by the hour. He was the best player on UCF's undefeated defense last season, he won the AAC defensive player of the year, and a Peach Bowl MVP to boot.

Griffin checked in at 6-foot-1 and 227 pounds, demonstrating that he not only has the talent to perform at the National Football League level but also the size.

Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman was impressed with Griffin's showing. He is fast and athletic and instinctive.
