  • Great story, horrible pick. A luxury, niche player. The FO lost me with the last 2 picks. Somebody please get Scot McCloughan on the phone immediately.

    I am now convinced you are either trolling, or have not watched one second of any of these guys. Shaquem's tape is unreal. He is the fastest guy on the field when you watch, it is like watching Earl Thomas play LB. I think he can play SS, OLB and even rush from end in nickel. Dude bends the edge as good as you possibly can. He will also be a special teams animal. Unbelievable pick in the 5th. Add on the person they are getting, and with his brother....this is awesome.

    This. A friend of mine who's a Dolphin fan wanted them to pick him up in the 3rd. Shaquem has all the traits to make it big in the NFL even with his handicap. Hell, the drummer from Def Leppard only has one arm and look how he's done. :twisted:

    He's a tweener that I think will struggle in the NFL. I see him as nothing more than a bonafide special teamer. Just dont feel he'll be an impact player. Hope he proves me wrong, and i'll gladly eat crow if he does. Not feeling it right now though.

  • 1) A kid who’s work ethic and commitment you will not doubt
    2) A good player - how good will be see
    3) I think he and his brother will motivate and feed of each other
    4) we will definitely get a hometown discount when we resign Griffin 1

    The bolded part is my issue. Another jack of all trades guy, but master of none. With as many issues as this team has, I dont think they should be drafting people in which we need to guess where they might play.

    And that is what really has me stoked for this pick, his athleticism. Once they start working with him I see him getting much better and being all over the field, in a good way that is.

    Thats not what he is though. He played OLB in college. He CAN do all of those things. And isn't just a guy doing any of them, he is dominant. He closes to the ball the way Earl does.

Guy can play football. It says a lot about Shaquill as well. They must really love the character of these guys. So glad he is a Seahawk

    You're aware that it was a 5th-round pick, right? Impact players aren't expected here; bonafide special teamers are.

    And calling for John Schneider's head over it pretty much removes all doubt that you're just looking for reasons to criticize him.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I mean, don't tell Def Leppard that guys with handicaps can't drum. And back in the day, I watched Jim Abbott be a very productive starting pitcher for the Angels.

    Absolutely right ... and Shaquem Griffin has not just merely dealt with a physical handicap ... he's not merely coped with it ... he's EXCELLED. Hands down. Just look at the numbers and the productivity. I think he's going to come in and surprise a lot of people.
