Jason Licht may not have drafted Shaquem Griffin, but the general manager of Griffin's hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers will certainly be rooting for him. "Man, love the kid. Had him here for the local day. That was an emotional moment. I thought that was just awesome. Very happy for him and his brother and it just pulls on your heartstrings there. That's awesome."

UCF OLB Shaquem Griffin has the speed and first-step quickness to compete for a role in the Seahawks Nickel/Dime packages. And the energy he brings to the field will show up on special teams. Griffin has the ability to take over on coverage units in the kicking game.

Shaquem Griffin's story is so much bigger than football. Annika Emmert is 13 and plays soccer. She was also born with amniotic band syndrome and had a portion of her right arm amputated. Some kids and even coaches don't high-five her after games because of her bionic arm. "It's always a big thing meeting someone like him who is exactly like you. It makes your heart pound."

Shaquem Griffin meets with two young fans -- Annika Emmert and Wyatt Falardeau, who both have 3D printed arms and are patients of UCF's Limbitless Solutions. Griffin told them he wanted to go grab ice cream, donuts and strawberry sodas now that his workout was finished.

"I was a guy who was under the radar who they didn't believe in at first but I feel like they're starting to believe now," said Shaquem Griffin," adding, "I have the entire nation behind me." He's so grateful for the enormous support he's had from all over.

Shaquem Griffin said that he has been invited to the NFL draft and he will be attending. That's a far cry from just a few months ago in January, when he was practically begging for an invite to the NFL combine.

At Shaquem Griffin's side at his UCF pro day — brother Shaquill Griffin, cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks. Shaquem had some drops today in defensive back drills. That'll be the concern for him at the next level — identifying where he fits.

Shaquem Griffin specifically asked cleat designer Marvin Baroota to have "Against All Odds" and "Trust the Process" on his cleats. Baroota told me that the logo on the front represents him and his brother, Shaquill. (Photo courtesy of Marvin Baroota).
