Okoye, who made the Olympics in discus, is trying to make it in the NFL as a defensive lineman. Okoye is only 21 years old and has the body to play in the league at 6'5 and 300 pounds.
Okoye, who has never played a single game of football in his life, is turning some heads, according to The Guardian. The British import ran 4.88 and 4.78 40-yard dashes at the Super Regional combine in Dallas, certainly getting some attention.
Given his size and athleticism, Okoye is likely to garner at least an invite to offseason workouts with some team. Whether or not the Bears take a chance is up to general manager Phil Emery.
