Former UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin put on a show at the Scouting Combine, turning in one of the best performances of any player in Indianapolis. Griffin ran the fastest 40-yard dash for a linebacker, but what drew the most attention was the way Griffin cranked out 20 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, despite only having one hand.

Shaquem also showed off the strap that he put around his left forearm, which he connected to a chain around a dumbbell so he could do curls with his left arm. And he started with bodyweight exercises like pushups and dips, using another pad his father made to take pressure off his left forearm.
