Lawrence Okoye Thread of Epic Awesomeness

he's way too high cut for d-line.

High cut? Listen to yourself and then realize you're talking potato.
Has no awareness of where ball carrier was but that is to be expected.

If i had to guess i would say his goal for this game was be assignment sound and dont lose your gap. He got blown way off the line early like he was on roller skates but was not embarassing bad later on.

They tried cut blocking him and he dodged back then moved back up to hold his ground.

Biggest thing i noticed was his head on a swivel looking all around. Seemed lost in the chaos ha ha


FYI he entered game with approx 4 min remaining after a 3rd down conversion. Played right end

He was in on 3 or 4 plays.
Unfortunately they ran away from his side every time. The only chance he had to effect a play, he was double teamed and pushed back five yards. The running back could have easily cut back into his lane for 5+ yards but didn't.

He certainly looks athletic, and he certainly has achieved his goal, he is a bad football player.

LOL he got his colors, I think he's gonna stick with us on the practice squad (definitely won't get picked up), and show huge progress by next year.
Make him into a f**king fullback. I know I will....... In madden
Okoye looked just like what I said he would...... A little kid lost at K-Mart looking for his mom. At least he'll have a good story to tell about how he went to the states and played professional American football with absolutely no experience. haha. wow

This was great for the kid... he can watch how ridiculous he looked on film from and actual game, pre-season is the closest thing he'll get for a long time. He's definitely not a lame brain, he'll learn off his mistakes. Hopefully, he can learn fast and adapt to game speed.
he is going to sack alex smith next week.

So either Alex Smith will drop down the depth chart to 4th string or Okoye is gonna just out play Justin Smith in training camp and just shoot up the depth chart....sorry don't see either happening.
The biggest thing with him is you can tell he is thinking. If he just got low and attacked the OL he might not look so bad. It looks like he is looking around and trying to understand what is happening, and in the meantime, he is getting pushed back by the OL.

What I am suggesting is that if he or his agent publicly states that he won't sign any contract for whatever amount for anyone but SF, then no one will claim him off waivers because they will not get a contract signed. So that way, he will clear and we can put him on PS. My question: is that even legal? Can a player do that and still be within CBA?

If he is claimed, he must go to the team that claims him

If he is claimed by another team on waivers, they must sign him to their 53 man squad. if he is unclaimed, he can sign on to any practice squad.

It was his first football game....EVER.
Matt Maiocco ‏@MaioccoCSN 59s 49ers DL Lawrence Okoye played six defensive snaps, including two kneeldowns at the end. As expected, had difficult time finding the ball.
