lol....what exactly has Dial accomplished to be penciled in for an automatic spot aside becoming a 5th rd selection?

Are you kidding, offensive linemen can give him bjs standing uo

While I'd love to see him make the 53, I doubt it'll happen. Who would he supplant? Dial, Dobbs, TJE, or Tukuafu?

And if we didn't sign him, what are the chances that he'd clear waivers? There isn't the buzz around him like last year.

If there is even the question you let either walk, because it would mean Okoye has shown some very seriously impressive progression.

What about russell wilson, what can he do for him when Dial is standing up?
Defensive tackle Lawrence Okoye's athleticism has display with his speedy coverage on special teams. "We've kind of gotten used to it now. We've been seeing it all spring," Harbaugh said. "He's doing a real good job. It doesn't stand out as much now (because) you're kind of used to it. He's doing a good job on the defensive line, too."

All this positive press will make it difficult to stash him on the PS. Some weaker team could pull the trigger, now that he has a better understanding of the game. While he still remains a long shot for our team, his chances are improving to make a roster somewhere.
I hope he makes it because that means that he has picked the game of football up. You don't come across freakish athletes like him too often. If you can turn him into a football player, watch out.

Yup. But being a FB player and an Athlete are different things.

Agreed. I wouldn't count him out yet though. B/c if he can continue to excel on ST's and improves at the DE position enough to provide more immediate/long-term upside over Dobbs or TJE, he may force the coaches hands here (which is great). If I were him, I'd work a ton on refining a pass rush b/c that's one skill neither Dobbs or TJE possess. He's got a real shot partially b/c he's competing at DE, not TE or some other skill position. If he gets his technique, positioning down and keeps learning from Tomsula and Smith/McDonald, this could get really fun, really fast!

still, if you soberly analyze his body, movement and athleticism, he most closely resembles joe staley.
he's an offensive tackle, first.
his legs are long, and his hips are way up there--that's an hardship for a d-line guy.
not saying he won't make it on D, just that his body best fits OT.

Offensive Line is a helluva lot harder to learn the Dline
