07/31/13 - DL Lawrence Okoye, who has never played a down of football, finally got to showcase what he can do in pads. It was a welcome sight for coach Jim Harbaugh, who noticed a big difference in the former British Olympian's presence once he was able to showcase his physicality.
"The most noticeable thing is he appears to be a better player in pads, which wasn't going to be my first thought. His arm length really shows up in pads. He was wearing pads, other guys wearing pads. Now, the arm length, to be able to put his hands on somebody and lock them up was noticeable. So, we were all in uncharted waters and he looked better in pads."
