4. Matt Barnes - Los Angeles Clippers

Football News

Matt Barnes is one of those athletes who flourished in more than one sport, whether at high school or collegiate level. Whilst attending Del Campo High School in California, Matt Barnes was a high school All-American in football as well as basketball.

Saying that, he can easily be compared to Chicago Bears Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall, both of a similar height and build Barnes would be a great possession receiver in the NFL. He would scare the living daylights out of the Cornerbacks facing him as he would tower over every single one of them as he stands at 6’7”, so obviously his size would be a massive plus in an NFL career. He may not be the quickest of players; but the Quarterback would definitely opt to throw towards Barnes over other targets.
