Some of the finest athletes in the world play in the NBA; they possess immense levels of skill and athleticism in order to become the best Basketball players they can be.

But which NBA superstars would be able to cut it out in the other major American sport; which NBA superstars could actually cut it out in the NFL?

Just like the NBA the NFL possesses some of the finest football players; some of the finest athletes in each position and they give it their all each and every season. Let’s pretend that the NBA players had an easy opportunity to switch over to the NFL; which ten players would be able to make their mark in the league? And stay at the top of their game whilst doing so.

I have compiled together a list of ten NBA superstars who I believe would be able to cut it out in the NFL; along with providing which position they would be best suited to in the NFL; and who they can be compared to.

Some inclusions will obviously come as no surprise, as most of these guys have played football to a high level, whether it was in high school or college; whilst other NBA players have been included purely because of their athleticism, and they could use that athleticism to take the NFL world by storm.
