Ryan Shazier has great reaction to Shaquem Griffin’s 40-yard dash

Shaquem Griffin has been turning heads at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and he had another great moment on Sunday when he posted the fastest 40-yard dash time for any linebacker since 2003. In fact, it was so fast that it inspired Ryan Shazier.

Griffin, a former UCF star, showed scouts some blazing speed:

Shazier, who also ran a sub-4.40 40-yard dash at the combine back in 2014, was just as impressed as the rest of us. He joked that he’s going to need to speed up his recovery from a spinal injury just so he can regain the title of being the fastest linebacker in the NFL.

Griffin also put up 20 reps in the bench press on Saturday, which is remarkable considering he had his left hand amputated when he was 4 years old.

As we know, Shazier is still a long way from playing football again. You have to give him credit for having a sense of humor despite that.
