04/29/2013 - Lawrence Okoye's bizarre journey to the NFL will make its first official stop with the San Francisco 49ers. The British Olympian who decided to take a stab at a professional football career only a few months ago announced on Twitter following the end of the NFL Draft on Saturday that he has agreed to a contract with the 49ers. Okoye finished 12th in the discus in the London Olympics last summer and signed up for a regional draft combine in Atlanta, where he had moved to train in warmer weather.

Okoye blew up the workout, was invited to another regional combine in Dallas, vaulted up draft boards in recent weeks despite having never played a down of football but ultimately went undrafted. He landed in a good spot with the 49ers, who have a loaded roster and spent several of their 11 draft picks on boom-or-bust type prospects. "Inadequate. It was my first impression standing next to him," said 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. "He's just an Adonis. Just a great physical specimen of a man. I can think of some other adjectives. Our Creator created a beautiful man." - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange
