5. Russell Westbrook - Oklahoma City Thunder

Football News

If not for LeBron James then Russell Westbrook could be the most athletic player in the NBA; constantly on the attack with a great vertical and good vision; Westbrook is one of the players who could be used in a number of positions. 

Wide Receiver and Safety are two of the positions a fully-fit Westbrook could occupy, but I would say he is best suited to Running Back. His good ball handling skills, he is a smaller player and quite similar to Rajon Rondo however he still has the ability to shrug off defenders and could put that to good use as a Running Back. Holding the ball, using his good vision and his great agility to get past defenders and drive that ball home.
