just for fun...

which players would you like to see play the other side of the ball from their natural positions, in a non-pro charity game or something?



i think Harrison Smith might make a decent QB. Everson Griffen might be a cool TE. let's see Thielen play safety.

I would have liked to see Adrian Peterson as a linebacker.

I liked pro football better back during the late 1940s and early '50s, when most of the players played both ways. Defensive linemen played offensive line as well. Receivers were defensive backs. Linebackers were tight ends or receivers or running backs.Quarterbacks were kickers and punters. Players had to be tough and had to be well-conditioned. (Yes, I know that players are in much better condition today, and so are the fields and equipment). Everything was slower then, but the competition was, too.

Bud Grant played those two positions.

He already fills in at fullback, so I would like to see Linval play OL. He certainly has the strength and agility to be a very good O-Lman.

With the way he studies the game, I would love to see Terence Newman play as a 3rd down RB. I think he would be awesome putting him in motion and catching the ball in the flat.

it'd be nuts to see Anthony Barr as a 6'5 RB.

I think Kyle Rudolph as an outside Linebacker would be interesting.

I think Trae Waynes would make a decent wide receiver, even if it was as nothing more than a deep threat.

Everson as a tight end is an interesting thought, too

LT = Danielle Hunter
LG = Datone Jones
C = Shamar Stephen
RG = Linval Joseph
RT = Everson Griffen

DE = Alex Boone
DT = Pat Elflein
NT = Danny Isidora
DE = Kyle Rudolph

I like it except Rudolph at DE. I can't wrap my head around that.

What about Bucky Hodges?
