8. Chris Paul - Los Angeles Clippers

Football News

Chris Paul just recently signed a new deal with the Los Angeles Clippers and is always towards the top of the leader board when it comes to steals in the NBA; CP3 is fantastic at stripping the ball away from his opponents and could use the same skills to steal the ball on a football field.

Chris Paul is actually really quick, he probably will not be able to make an elite Running Back or a Wide Receiver, but he certainly possesses the speed to keep up with a top-level Wide Receiver which is why he could become an elite Cornerback in the NFL. He has brilliant hand-eye co-ordination and although he may not get a vital interception you would be able to count on him to get his hands up and knock the ball away.

Many fans would definitely see similarities between CP3 and Broncos Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie; around the same size and build and Cromartie also possesses great speed and hand-eye co-ordination; along with the all-important ability to knock the ball away.
