NCAA Football: Peach Bowl-Auburn vs Central Florida Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

In 2017 the Seattle Seahawks used a third round pick on cornerback Shaquill Griffin, and while he outperformed expectations of a third round rookie, the story of his twin brother, Shaquem Griffin, is amazing. Many Seattle fans loved Shaquem’s story so much that they wanted the team to draft Shaquem in order to reunite the twins in the NFL.

Well, this is certainly how many fans dreamed of this coming to be.

With the fourth pick in the fourth round of the draft, and the 141st overall pick overall, the team did indeed choose Shaquem, and as many would expect, Seahawks Twitter erupted. This is just a small sampling of the reactions from fans in the immediate aftermath of the pick.

The team itself even got into the celebratory action following the pick, when it posted the followed GIF of the Griffin brothers doing a celebratory dance during one of their games together at Central Florida.
