Jim Harbaugh on Lawrence Okoye: "Our Creator Created a Beautiful Man"

Jim Harbaugh is an extremely eloquent speaker, but is known to exaggerate at times.

When asked about the 49ers’ signing of undrafted free agent Lawrence Okoye, he said, “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.”

Okoye is a British discus record-holder and participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London

He has no previous football experience, but does play rugby and according to CSN, “attended two regional combines and attracted the attention of NFL scouts with his size and athleticism.”

Okoye is listed as a defensive lineman.
