7. Kawhi Leonard - San Antonio Spurs

Standing at 6’7” with a 7’3” wingspan; Leonard is one of the longest players in the NBA and although it may not seem like it; the Spurs Small Forward could put his wingspan to good use as an Outside Linebacker.

Watching Leonard play for the Spurs, you can clearly see he is assigned to cover the opposition’s best offensive player which results in Kawhi Leonard being skilled in pass coverage; not to say he would be bad in the running game, as I am positive with his skills he would excel in that department also. With his wingspan, if Leonard had a blocker on him he would easily be contain the outside and would prove to be a difficult player to block and keep him from making the all-important plays.
