Lawrence Okoye Thread of Epic Awesomeness

Last I heard Boone was down to or close to 300 lbs and that's where the trainers want him. I'll see if I can find the story. Wasn't that long ago.

He is the tallest guy on the line and even one of the beat writers said Boone is pretty impressive looking even compared to Okoye.

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

25 - 15 = 5

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

oh, I'm no doubter. i was early on the okoye bandwagon. i was just pointing out that just about all 300 lb nfl athletes with low body fat look great in a uniform--kwame being one of them. that was one of his selling points; he looked so athletic for an o-lineman because he wasn't fat.

see, he fooled ya

That's because he was down for that sweet stuff.
I don't know. Kwame doesn't really look tough to me, especially with that thing on his head. What the hell is that?

It's a typo. In my brain.

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.

Eating clean, pumping iron ... and taking dat der Test + GH. Seriously though, an elite athlete at the NFL level could maybe put on 6 pounds of muscle in an entire year if that's all they were training for. And there's no way they'd lose body fat at the same time without drugs. Body recomposition of that nature is really only seen by guys in their first year of lifting. I'd guess at least 75% of the league is on some type of PED. A much higher percentage if we're talking just lineman. 10-15 pounds of muscle in a single offseason? By a guy who's been hitting the weights since junior high? Bullsh*t.
per MM...

Defensive linemen Lawrence Okoye and Mike Purcell worked against each other on getting off at the snap of the ball under the watchful eye of defensive line coach Jim Tomsula during positions drills in practice. Tomsula seemed to be particular encouraged with what he saw from Okoye. Once practice began, Okoye and Purcell had one particularly nice showing in 11-on-11 drills against the first-team offense. Purcell got some push against C Daniel Kilgore, while Okoye more than held his own against LG Mike Iupati.

Yeah apparently I was dead wrong. All I can find on him says 300lbs as well. I always thought he was 320+. Dudes shoulders are monstrous in interviews.

Did he hold his own against the run (really impressive as this is Iupati's strength) or as a pass rusher (Iupati's weakest skill)?

I don't really think it matters. Just the fact that a guy with zero football experience is holding his own against one of the best OG's in the league, in any aspect of the game, is very impressive.
