The Chicago Bears have signed former Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch, but he comes with a twist.

Lynch played at Quarterback for Northern Illinois and five months ago finished third in the Heisman Trophy list behind winner Jameis Winston and AJ McCarron.

Despite being held in such high regard, Lynch failed to be drafted over the weekend as the draft saw a lot of Quarterback talent go in the form of Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater.

Strange to see Lynch go un-drafted however after throwing for over 2,800 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Now the Bears have signed him up, but he won't be any threat to Jay Cutler, Lynch has signed on as a Runningback.

Lynch has very impressive rushing statistics from his Illinois days as he ran for over 1,900 yards and even scored 23 rushing touchdowns.

Lynch isn't the first man to change his playing position or even play in a different position during his college days compared to his NFL career.

So lets take a look at some other big names who have experience all around the field.....
