08:08 PM ET 04.30 | 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.

Now if he would just think the same of Manti, we'd have a match made in heaven. Oh wait, Harbaugh is a real person. What is this? Now coaches are coming out?

If Jim Harbaugh heard what you said he'd punch you in front of your family.
That being said it's kind of funny.

Lawrence Okoye is a great story....but I'll be surprised if he makes the practice squad. Happy, but surprised.

Wow....Sounds like Harbaugh is making sure this guy gets the full rookie indoctrination treatment. He's trying to toughen him up. I'd be surprised if he needs to be any tougher.

Rugby is just tackle football without pads played by very violent, crazy people who have my upmost respect.
