SOT: Shaquem Griffin 20-rep bench press in NFL Combine
Impressive! He should get drafted and be able to help some NFL team out there.

I'd like to know who the GM was that thought he'd only be able to do 5 or 6.

Probably the GM of the Browns.

That was Griffin's expectation. His previous max is 11.


Good showing by him, considering he couldn't do the bar freshman year that's quality coaching and work in strength and conditioning.

I know, but there was also a GM who was quoted to have said something along the lines of, "I'd be impressed if he could only do 5 or 6..."

Looking for that quote but a night after too much Dead, I might be wrong too...

Dude should be in the discussion for 1st/2nd rounder...but teams are afraid of the elephant in the room. He's one of the best rush backers I've seen and has good to great coverage skills. Add that to his strength and speed, and the dude is a great option.

The 4.38 40 he ran is the fastest 40 time by an LB since they began keeping track in 2003. What an incredible story. I hope some team takes him in the early rounds. How can you not root for him?

You are an SEC QB and have PTSD from the peach bowl

Wow!!

That's a beast of a strong safety. Strong, fast, nose for the ball, situational understanding, good football iq. That's Polamalu (spell?) Like qualities.

Tulane's Perry Nickerson ran a 4.32 40 today. Tied for fastest at this year's combine.

It's too bad the AAC doesn't have NFL talent. (Forgot which ESPN talking head made that statement)

Still just wow. Imagine him in Jacksonville or in Houston. With all their defensive abilities now he would terrorize the league, no doubling him, he can cover, rush, get to the ball. Who is going to line up and give him trouble one on one?

You're right. People like to cover their butts. Just like a company that won't take a chance on hiring someone without a college degree. If they don't pan out they will be asked "why did you hire someone without a college degree". Anyone can hire the obvious but you have to put work into finding someone outside the norms.
