Brandon Lloyd and Lawrence Okoye

Anybody think that both of these players have a legitimate shot to make the 53 man roster? Lloyd has been working red-zone with Kaepernick during the OTAs, but if the niners keep 5 or 6 receivers, can he make the cut? And Okoye is only 22 going to be 23 later on this year..he is still very raw, but he has the quickness, strength, and overall power to push the pocket and get to the QB, let alone, he does have Jim Tomsula working with him to understand plays and what he needs to do on the defensive line. These guys have a good shot, or no?

my own--seemingly unique--opinion is that okoye should be trained as a right tackle. i see stiffness in him that will be counter-productive to d-line play, but he has ungodly power that would demoralize any defender if he was on the o-line using good technique. close to larry-allen mauling potential. his physical presence screams OT to me.

unless he's developed something beyond rudimentary d-line instincts this offseason, he'll have a hard time making the roster.
Witth the trade for Stevie Johnson... I'm not sure Lloyd makes the team.
Crabs, Boldin, Johnson, Patton, Ellington, ...Osgood (ST)?
Lloyd is a year removed from football... I just don't see him making the team.

Okoye... we will see in pre-season. Tomsula is a heck of a coach.
Has Okoye been a good student? Gotta see him play.
Whys this in the draft forum?

I'm curious to see if there is any improvement in Okoye ...with his strength and speed, he has the makings of a terror of a 3-4 defensive lineman ...I doubt he makes the team , Tony Jerod Eddie showed he belongs on the team , and we all know Tank and Ian Williams are hungry and ready to bite some arms off
