No, I can't say I ever saw a pic of Kwame that made me think "That right there is one tough S.O.B."

Nice try tho, can't wait till this guy makes doubters like you eat crow.

Oh please. Don't read into it. Obviously the guy is working hard and they threw him a bone. Right thing to do. Next on the agenda for Okoye: go to sleep, get up at 6 am and do it all over again.

It's a real positive that he's doing what's asked of him with no flinching, no ego. THAT is what may get him a spot on practice squad and maybe if there are injuries a few games on the 45. I honestly am impressed that a 21 year old with no big school experience would last this long in a difficult environment populated with bullies larger than he is.

It's not just the physical training that he's missed. It's the mental torture of being in a big school high pressure environment. But he's handling it very well.

What?

For real doe. Dudes 6'6'' 284, he's gotta be one of the biggest if not the biggest dudes on the team.

Google said 284 but he's probably added some weight in preparation for football. Either way, he's a big ass dude.

Size and weight is only half the battle... I've seen plenty of big guys get knocked on their ass by little guys who play with some attitude and leverage.

the fact that he hasnt given up yet is a positive sign, the fact that Tomsula and staff are putting in the extra time for him is a major plus

Larry says Hi!
Love his attitude, hopefully it stays that way after getting worked over in preseason. Ill be happy if he holds his own on 50% of the plays, hoping he has already committed 2 years in his head for this experiment and not just one offseason.

No. Actually, I don't remember that at all. Harris never looked anything near tough to me.

Your source is incorrect. Boone is easily one of if not our largest linemen. Dude is a beast.

The official niner website also has him at 300. Seems weird to me as well, but that's what is there.

Says he had a great offseason eating clean and pumping Iron. Said he put on 10-15 pounds of muscle.

But if you drop 25 pounds of flab, and put on 15 lb muscle, you are still down 5 pounds.
