3. Derrick Rose - Chicago Bulls

The 24-year-old Point Guard is definitely best suited to the NBA; as the NFL would just be too much of a slower pace for a man of his abilities. Nevertheless out of the countless skills D-Rose possesses; he is another one of those athletes who could do well in any sport, in any position. 

Rose is extremely athletic who is very strong and just as fast; always on the attack and has better body control than most players in the same position. His ability to dictate the tempo of the game means he would be best suited to a Running Back; using his great vision and ball control, as well as his ability to change direction extremely quickly means he would be perfect in that position. Not only that; if Rose managed to showcase the exact same level of skill in the NFL as he does in the NBA, there is no doubt he would currently be one of the top five running backs in the league.
