It's the first time brothers were drafted by the same team since 2001, when the Titans took cornerback Andre Dyson and wide receiver Kevin Dyson, according to Elias Sports Bureau. 

The two brothers played together at Central Florida before Shaquille was drafted by the Seahawks last year. 

The 6'1'', 227 pound 22-year-old Griffin was also the subject of an SI TV documentary based on a Sports Illustrated story from Andy Staples story that provided an inside look at his journey to UCF, where he became one of the nation's top defenders.
