If they played football

It's NFL Draft night, which got me thinking about these NBA prospects and how many of them have football ability.

I think Kyle Anderson would make a good/great pocket quarterback. Great poise, vision, iq, great height to see the whole field, long arms to get great torque for the deep ball.

Nurkic could probably make a living on the offensive line with his great strength and quick feet laterally.

Wiggins would have been a great receiver, at least as a deep threat on the sidelines.

Smart looks like a strong safety/linebacker hybrid. With even more strength training he could be a middle linebacker in a 4-3.

Nick Johnson looks like a strong safety.

who else looks like they could have made a little money playing football?

Randle could play defensive

Randle could play defensive tackle with a nice power rush.

Aaron Gordon could be a tight end.

lol he is 6 foot 9, 250

lol he is 6 foot 9, 250 pounds. The guards of the NFL would drive him back 10 yards before he even knew what hit him.

I think Randle is going to

I think Randle is going to measure out at 6'7" flat or 6'7.25" without shoes, which is the height the nfl uses.

And while he's 250 now, he'll probably weigh 260 by the time of training camp his second year in the nba just by doing cardio. If this guy dedicated to training for football, I think he'd get up to 285 by the time he would be nfl draft eligible two years from now.

But he might be more in the 3/4 end mode like Richard Seymour than traditional DT because of his height, like you point out.

Semaj Christon and Shabazz

Semaj Christon and Shabazz Napier look like standout cornerbacks.Markel Brown at free saftey. Jarnell Stokes looks like a 4-3 DE right now. PJ Hairston looks like he could be a OLB/TE hybrid a la Anthony Barr.

Tarik black

He would make a great TE and actually might get an invite from the packers. I guess Rodgers went to a Kansas game and asked Black to play catch and came away impressed with what he saw

Marcus Smart has the

Marcus Smart has the quarterback build, toughness, chip on shoulder, etc. He could be a scrambler who uses his bulk to stay upright and healthy, but can deliver a ball on point from a collapsing pocket.

Jarrod Polson as a kicker.

Randle and Stokes might make good tight ends.
