One of the highest-profile prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft class is Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin. What makes Griffin unique aside from his talent as a draft prospect is that he only has one hand, which makes all of his accomplishments all the more unlikely.
Naturally, folks online love to talk about why they would/wouldn’t do something if they were the decision-makers, and that didn’t sit well with Michigan Wolverines offensive lineman Grant Newsome.
As someone who has actually blocked Shaquem Griffin, I can personally say this take is beyond stupid. And last time I checked 4.38 at 6’1” 227 is as insane with one arm as it is with two https://t.co/I28RP3N08y

Where Griffin winds up in the draft is still to be seen, but he will have as much notoriety around him as any other prospect in his class due to both his unique skill set and situation.
