Lawrence Okoye Thread of Epic Awesomeness

They should sneak him onto the Stanford team this year.

Amazing. One of my predictions came true. In my original post, I just used regular quotes around injured, but I like the "air quote" emoticons. Nice. If he goes on injured reserve, he gets to watch practices closely, listen in on meetings, talk to coaches, study schemes and just learn the game mentally - which is definitely what he needs. That's why it's so "lucky" that they can put him on that list if that's what happens.

Nice call. I.R. - Divens too. Good, b/c I see upside in both players (anyone remember Ian Williams, Alex Boone, etc.). This coaching staff loves to develop players properly.

Williams and Boone are great examples. I had no idea Williams could turn into such a solid NT, but he's been absolute nails at the position so far.
The smartest move they've made in the last 24 hours. No chance he will be poached.

They gave him a chance to try out for the NFL. There wasn't much to him football wise at this point. Maybe some team will take the time to develop him, if he has the love and dedication for the game to go through the wear on body of an NFL season. The Niners are in a SB run this season. Roster spot is at a premium. Even at practice squad. I don't think they are interested in a long term project like Okyoe.

I guarantee Okoye is with the team in some capacity through preseaon 2014 in the least. The Niners are absolutely interested in developing him and your opinion on the mater is opposite reality.
So we stashing him on the "injured" list? Smart move.

if you are on the IR you are still allowed to practice right?

no, but your "rehab" can involve all kinds of "football movements," to help you get back into playing shape. He can't practice on the same field with his teammates, so he would miss out on A LOT of important scout team experience, but he could spend a year refining technique, attending meetings, watching film and taking mental reps at practice.
It didn't seem to me that we put him on IR. Barrows was explicit about who was placed on IR.

Is that what they're saying?

When I look at the injury on TV, it looked like he hyper-extended his leg against the ground after he got blocked from the side. I'm glad its just a bruise.
