There isn't a Seahawk player I'll ever root for more than Shaquem Griffin, the linebacker Seattle chose out of Central Florida in the fifth round of the NFL Draft.
The 6-foot (1.8m), 227 pound (102.97 kg) player impressed at the National Football League scouting combine, clocking a blazing 4.38 sec in the 40-yard dash - first among all linebackers present.
Griffin was an exemplary student-athlete, a role model, an inspirational leader, the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and the Peach Bowl Defensive MVP as a senior.
Shaquem Griffin became a household name for football fans during the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.
Getting picked was a dream come true for Griffin as he joins his twin brother, Shaquill Griffin, who was drafted by Seattle in the third round previous year.
Shaquem Griffin will play alongside his twin brother Shaquill Griffin for the Seattle Seahawks.

Both Griffin brothers were visibly emotional upon learning that Shaquem had been drafted by the Seahawks. "It was tough - I'm not going to lie to you - seeing all those guys picked in front of me". He sat through the entire fourth round without getting a call, but three picks into the fifth round the Seahawks called. One team had to feel so strongly about each brother that it would choose him before the other 31 teams who are equally determined to choose the best football players.
"I am looking for rookie of the year, I am ready to see him", Potter said.
"This is not the end of my road.it's only just the beginning", Shaquem said. Shaquill has long lobbied for the Seahawks to select his brother and obviously couldn't contain his excitement.
Griffin's college coach Scott Frost tweeted "About time", after the pick was made. It's not like I know the family or anything.
"If I can get to a practice, that's when everyone is going to see who I really am".
The 22-year-old's story blew up after he put on an astonishing combine workout, blazing to a 4.38 forty time and pushing a remarkable 20 reps on the bench press despite having to use a prosthetic just to participate in the event. But everything I've learned about emotions in sports also told me that's precisely the type of mistake you make when you get too emotionally invested in a specific outcome.
