which NBA players can you see playing the NFL today?

My List:

Lebron James: 6"8-260 - TE/WR- Too quick as a tight end, too strong and tall as a WR.

Dwayne Wade-6'4-220- QB/Safety- awesome arm as evidenced by the frequent home run passes to teammates. extremely physical with contact, and wouldnt be afraid to put a lick on receivers.

Deron Williams- 6'3-210- QB- Ideal size and intelligence for a QB. would make a good leader.

Russell Westbrook- 6"3- 190-CB- would be an ideal shutdown corner. would harass receivers the same way he harassed opposing PG's in the olympics. great speed and leaping ability.

Glen Davis-6"9-290- DE- would be a quick pass rusher, and tall enough to bother QB's vision and bat down thrown passes.

Kevin Love would be a great quarterback. One of, if not the best outlet passers in the NBA. Very cerebral player and great skill level.

Have you guys forgotten about

Have you guys forgotten about our very own Nate Robinson? He was a beast in highschool at American Football and even played college football. He was a helluv an athlete. I think that you guys underestimate a nfl athlete's athleticism. Those guys are really exceptional and you can only match a few nba players with the nfl standard. Some guys like Lebron, Nate and Rondo all were world class highschool football players, but when you think about it, many nba players love playing football in their free time and vice versa. It's a beautiful thing! Lebron really showcased exceptional football talent and in my opinion he could be as versatile in football as he is in basketball. The man is an amazing passer and even hit full court football shots in practice. He's a tank, he's fast, athletic, has good hands and has a superior instinct. Hell when you think about it lbj is an animal. Rondo made a very good football qb but was too skinny to play pro. KD is skinny as hell too but his life with bron really showcased he can play! He has good hands and long arms plus great athleticism.

Also Tracy McGrady is the only NBA player who has the arm to play QB, but I don't think he could read defenses though and is super slow.

Matt Barnes was a sick WR in

Matt Barnes was a sick WR in high school, led the nation with 28 receiving TDs as a senior. Lebron would probably make a good TE. Eric Gordon might make a good RB with his size and speed although he would probably get dinged up even more. Nate Robinson could probably be a DB in the NFL if he had focused on football

Eric Bledsoe would be a pretty sick running back I reckon.
