Laurence Okoye is a British Olympic discus player; he stands at six feet and six inches and weighs 304 pounds.

Okoye was an undrafted free agent. At the Regional Combine, he ran a 4.78 second 40 yard dash and has a 35 inch vertical jump, which is great for somebody who weighs 304 pounds.

The 49ers signed Okoye hoping to turn him into a defensive lineman. He could do very well in the NFL. Okoye is still a young player at 21 years old and has plenty of time to learn the sport and dominate in his position.
