1. LeBron James - Miami Heat

Football News

Let’s be honest, was there really going to be someone else in the top spot other than LeBron? He is possibly the most gifted athlete in all of professional sports and no NFL player can currently match LeBron’s athleticism; whether it is his size, speed, agility, strength etc. 

He moves like a Point Guard and can slam down a dunk at any given moment, and in the NFL he could do the exact same thing. It is difficult picking out one solid position for LeBron to dominate in, he could dominate the opposition as a Wide Receiver, be sent to go catch a pass as Tight End or even be used in the defensive side. In the Miami Heat warm-ups, the fans will have seen LeBron throwing the ball to Dwyane Wade; from one end of the court to another so he also possesses great arm strength. If I personally had to choose, I would say LeBron would be unstoppable as a Wide Receiver and cause the opposition tons of trouble.

Have I missed anyone? Maybe you think one of the guys could be better in a different position? Let me know in the comments; and be sure to check out which NFL players could make it in the NBA in the near future.
