Twitter roundly applauds Seahawks selecting Shaquem Griffin

By Jesse Reed

One of the most inspirational people we’ve had the pleasure of covering, Shaquem Griffin was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks with the 141st pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Now the young man who is the twin of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin (and just so happens to have just one hand) gets to join his sibling on the Seahawks and continue to live out his dream.

It was quite a weekend overall for Griffin, who also inked an endorsement deal with Nike on Friday.

He’s a player who has the support of the masses, too. People all over social media were exuberant that he was picked up in Round 5 by Seattle.
