Shaquem Griffin continues strong combine with fast 40

Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin ran a time of 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash Sunday at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, the fastest time for a linebacker in more than a decade.

Stanford’s Jon Alston had the previous best time for a linebacker in the 40, at 4.40 in 2006, the first year ESPN Stats & Information began documenting 40 times at the combine.

Griffin’s twin brother, Shaquill, a cornerback with the Seattle Seahawks, also ran a 4.38 at last year’s combine.

Shaquem Griffin’s 4.38 came in his first attempt at the 40. He ran a 4.58 in his second attempt.

It was a big weekend for Griffin, who on Saturday did 20 repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press, using a prosthetic on his left arm to attach to the bar. Griffin had his left hand amputated at age 4 because of amniotic band syndrome, a congenital condition.

He was a late addition to the list of combine invitees, getting his formal invitation on Jan. 30.
