NBA players who could be in NFL.

I saw this on RealGM and thought I would post it here in my perspective and see what you guys think.

LeBron- Wide receiver or tight end
Nate Robinson- Cornerback
Joey Graham- Tight end
Anthony Johnson- Running back
Sonny Weems- Wide receiver
Glen Davis- Offensive lineman
Rodney Carney- Wide receiver
Matt Barnes- Wide receiver
Steve Nash- Punter or Kicker
Matt Harpring- Tight end
Jason Kidd- Quarterback
Renaldo Balkman- Safety
Allen Iverson- Quarterback
Ron Artest- Defensive end
Jason Maxiell- Defensive end

Barnes could have probably

Barnes could have probably played in the nfl. He led the state of california in touchdowns his senior of highschool and could have gone to any college on a football scholarship. I spoke to some of his friends back in the day when he was bouncing around the league his first few years out of college and they told me he was seriously considering going to the nfl.

I know Allen Iverson played

I know Allen Iverson played quarterback and was great in high school, but I don't think he could be an NFL quarterback. He would end up as a kick/punt returner specialist and at the slot maybe.

I think Luke Harangody could

I think Luke Harangody could play tight end, 6'7'' you know his frame could hold on to about 275 pounds and he's strong as hell with good footwork and touch. I could see him being a blocking tight end.

Charlie Ward? haha. Anyways

Charlie Ward? haha.

Anyways I doubt Dwight could catch the ball to be a TE. Hah as tall as Dho someone would go for his knees and he'd be out for his career. Guys NFL scouts would actually look for to be a TE would be guys like Jason Maxiel, Craig Smith, and Trevor Booker. Damn Trevor Booker could be a damn good TE. Strong, athletic, great vert, and only 6'6/6-7".

Iverson would be a great

Iverson would be a great safety, in one game he had 7 interceptions which is a state record, also he was compared to Michael Vick as a quarterback, and he was a great kick/punt returner:

Blake Griffin would be a dynamic pass-catching tight end. Darnell Jackson from the Cavs would be a good defensive lineman. He seems pretty big.

Derrick Fisher could probably play in the NFL. That guy is built.

And I'm surprised you didn't put Shaq up there. He would play offensive lineman.

im pretty sure Glen Davis was

im pretty sure Glen Davis was an high school all american defensive end...also Iverson would be way too tiny to play quarterback in the NFL,like the previous poster said he would be a specialist returning kicks and lining up in the wildcat formation

Craig Smith looks like he would be good on the defensive line

Hah a little OT but I was

Hah a little OT but this thread reminds me I was just watching pro's vs Joes and Donovan Mcnabb, TO, and Antonio Gates just beat Hakeem, Kenny Smith, and Rick Fox in 3 on 3. Haha Rick Fox is such a scrub. Donovan has some serious game. I loved watching Gates at Kent State but he's obviously let basketball go. TO's game isn't pretty but it's obvious he probably shoots hoops at home all day. Better get used to it though, lol.

Ty Lawson

Ty Lawson-RB
Hasheem Thabeet- Designated Kick Blocker
Derrick Rose- S
Brandon Jennings- Slot WR
Avery Bradley- CB

Just to make the point of how valid a question this is, Jimmy Graham was a 4th round draft pick this year. He played one year of college football, and he wasn't the MOST talented athlete out there, although he is a big kid that can really run. I really think some positions, especially TE and WR, would be natrual transitions for Basketball players. My biggest doubt would be for defensive guys. Tackling is one of htose things that come with repititons. The guys that can hit at an NFL level have been doing it since they were in pop Warner.
