You know what ? I am totally livid that we didn't even try out Havard Rugland to see what that YouTube clip was all about. The guy was just floating around waiting for a chance and today he finally gets signed by the Lions. If he turns out to be even just 80% of that clip, it would be an absolutely massive loss for the 9ers. I am just glad a least we took a look at this discus guy, it never hurts to checks things out.

Matt Maiocco made a great point, imagine what Tomsula could do with a kid with his physical talents and no bad habits!!! He would learn all the proper fundamentals right from the jump...
This! Niners should use one of their 7th rd comp picks on this guy. I could see him being used as a pass-rushing DE in Nickel/Dime formations.
Holy smokes !! I just watched one of his interviews, this kid's head is well-screwed together to say the least. Apart from his athletic prowess, this guy is a brain box - did you know he got admitted into Oxford University to study Law ?! Unbelievable !! I studied in the UK and I know how hard it is to get into either Oxford or Cambridge. Wow !!
Michael Carter 49ers NT and Gold Metal shot put 1984. This guy kinda like Carter
He has never played American football at ANY level May be a natural athlete but seems like a total project for any team.
Jeff Stover (49ers) was another shot putter who never played college football. Stephen Neal who was a college wrestling champ and never played college football played guard for the Pats.
Okoye ran a 4.7 forty for guy almost 300 lbs! I hope we draft him.
