Re: 2013 TT Member Mock Draft Discussion
Lawrence Okoye, DL, of England
Lawrence Okoye, DE (6-foot-6, 304 pounds) — An Olympic discus thrower, Okoye reportedly turned down an offer to attend Oxford University to try out for the NFL. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 and 4.78 seconds. He performed the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds, had a 10-foot-5 broad jump and a 35-inch vertical jump. His arms were measured to be 35 inches long.
Okoye looked like he could be drafted. He was unbelievably active and incredibly explosive in drills. It was a real, first-class show.
This is a luxury project pick.
A toy for the Baltimore defense
I'm sure Ngata and Suggs with the coaching staff can tap into some of his potential.
