Shaquill and Shaquem were team-mates at Central Florida, Shaquill only agreeing to commit to them if they would also take on his sibling. The Seahawks envision Griffin as a pass-rushing outside linebacker, and he's also expected to play special teams. The 2016 American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year had his left hand amputated at the age of 4.
"It's insane because that process is tough to see all those guys before you", said Griffin, who ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash and bench-pressed 225 pounds 20 times at the NFL Combine in February.
Added Shaquill: "I was going to be happy no matter what team that gave him the opportunity".
"Everybody thinks it's a sentimental story, but Shaquem Griffin doesn't see it like that".
During his collegiate career, Shaquem totaled 122 solo tackles, 73 assisted tackles, 18.5 sacks, three interceptions, four forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.
More than anyone else involved in the story, Pete Carroll and John Schneider had the ability to at least get somewhat prepared for the enormity of what was to come. "We're going to try to put him in spots where we can utilize the great speed that he has, and he's as fast as you can get as a linebacker".

DOJ probing Huawei over possible sanctions violations
ZTE was banned from purchasing components from United States suppliers, including access to Google's Android operating system. It is not known whether a Qualcomm representative was on the ZTE call and the company declined to comment.
"I tell you, it's fantastic".
It was a call that created the feel-good story of not just the Seahawks' draft but that of the entire NFL.
Griffin starred at college level. So when a phone call from the Seattle area code came across Shaquem's phone on Saturday, Shaquill knew he had to get his brother's attention immediately. The scenario - Shaquem not only overcoming the longest of odds to reach the pros, but also rejoining his twin brother on the same team - is the stuff of Hollywood movie scripts, not National Football League reality.
Said Shaquem: "I looked, and that's when tears just started pouring down". "Even though I've been doubted so long, it was always triggered in me to just do it and to prove all of them wrong".
I hope I am an inspiration for people, to see I can do whatever I want.
"It's tough thinking that you're one of the top players in the draft and having good tape and everything like that, just having to wait", Hurst said.
