British Olympian impresses scouts ahead of NFL Draft.
Lawrence Okoye continues to impress NFL scouts with his athleticism and size after an impressive showing at the NFL super regionals combine held in Dallas.
The Discus thrower has continued his path to an NFL team throw the combine, having been invited to attend after impressing scouts in Atlanta while training in his more natural field event.
Okoye is still a very, very raw project to play in the NFL. He doesn’t have the skill set to play in the NFL, and will not understand the nuances of the game in its tactical aspect. The one thing that will make Okoye a prize asset as a free agent pick up is that he will be very coachable.
As a natural sports athlete, he will be willing to learn and develop new skills quicker than most, which could help him become ready for the start of the 2013 NFL season.
