The most fascinating signing has to be Okoye, a British discus record-holder and participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics in LondonHe 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, and according to 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.”

Another notable addition is MarQueis Gray. An extremely versatile player, he is listed as a running back, but has played as a wide receiver and quarterback as well for Minnesota, excelling at all three positions.
