1st and 10 is asking this. MJD says #1 overall. Skip says 6th roundish.

I would say.....3rd to 4th. I mean, he is just an athlete right now. No real football skills.

It wouldn't be 1st overall that I do know

The Titans would take him with their first rounder if he lasted that long.

I think he'd have to project as a TE, but this topic is silly.

Yeah, I was just wondering what everyone here thought. I agreed a lot more with Skip than MJD. He'd be like Vernon Davis, just without any playing experience.

Lebron chose the right sport, in football he's either a TE, probably a very good one, until a safety/LB kneecapped him and ended his career, or a DE.

6'8 is really tall for a football player who's not a lineman.

This should go in the off topic....or in the garbage.

Hell, I'd take him #1. Can you imagine the money you'd make selling his jerseys, filling seats, getting your team on Sportscenter, etc? And he played football in high school I think, he'd be at least decent probably as a TE or something.

I think it'd be worth it from a business standpoint. Who watched that commercial of him joining the Browns and didn't feel excited seeing him in a football uniform?

He would be the best TE in the NFL if he played in college right out of HS.

6'8" 265 with that vert?

I think he'd be in a Connor Barwin type of situation. Late 1st-early 2nd.

Matt Jones was the 21th overall pick, right?

LeBron would probably go mid-late 1st. I'd take him over DHB or Britt, that's for sure.

Everyone looks at him and says TE......What about DE?

His size is really close to someone like Mario Williams........teach him some pass rush moves and see what he can do.

I'd love him as a red zone WR and field goal/punt blocker too. Bat everything down, lol

He would be a taller version of Calvin Johnson

LeBron ain't running a 4.35.

Matt Millen would have taken him #1

LeBron is a freak athlete. There's no way he gets out of the top 3. He has a frame for literally any position on the field. Imagine if he maxed his frame out.

I disagree with MJD *shudders at his impending judgement.* I would draft him around the 3rd round or something.

He'd be the first TE off the board if he went to college to play football. He'd be the best athlete in the NFL bar none. I think he's the best American athlete in the world, personally.

Redzone WR for sure.

If he had gone the football route, where he was likely going to convert to TE in college, or just be a new WR breed, he would likely be an early to mid first round pick

Theres alot of guys playing other sports I would like to see playing on the gridiron.

Mostly basketball players for me. Anyone in baseball? NHL?
I can't think of many.

I heard that he ran a 4.4 in high school.

my first guess would be rugby.

He would be sick at DE. If he wasnt 260 or w/e he is we should be a very fast WR

I would like to see what Joe Mauer could have done had he continued his football career. Big Papi would be an interesting guy to see strap up. Maybe see some of the defensive enforces in the NHL playing LB.

Rugby would definitely be my player pool if I had to pick a sport. Fast and Physical are the boys of the rugby code.

The guy in my avatar would be a sick CB/return guy. He's similar to a 1st day CB from the school who's also a good dunker. Funny how those things work.

LeBron ain't running a 4.35.

No, but he's four inches taller, thirty pounds heavier, and is one of the fastest players in the NBA.

He could play WR, S, DE, 3-4 OLB, etc...anything.

I'd say LBJ is a first day pick. He's got too much talent and would make an awesome TE, WR or a DE.

LeBron James is the most gifted athlete of all-time in my opinion. I believe he could play DE, LB, S, WR, TE, and OT.

He's definitely up there, depending on whether or not you believe some of the amazing things floating around about Wilt Chamberlain. Because if half of that is true.... good God. I hope he impregnated at least 30 of his 20k women. MAYBE HE IS LEBRON'S FATHER :o

With the way he ran that fastbreak, Z should be his quarterback.

El Peefs?????

Anyone who doesnt think he would go in the 1st round is fooling themselves. I think he is too far behind for a Top 10 team to take him to develop, but somewhere mid to late first a team would without a doubt draft him based on his absurd potential.

Tony Gonzalez is arguably the best TE of all-time.

Lebron James could arguably be better than Tony Gonzalez given his ridiculous physical tools, hand eye coordination, wing span, reach, vertical, body control, speed, etc.


He wouldn't leave the top 5 as a TE.


Hell who knows he could go #1 overall as a DE. Then again what a waste of that vertical if he played DE. Then again imagine how many FGs he could block or passes he could bat down. He would definitely not leave the top 5 that's for sure.

Maybe he could play CB since he would know what the WRs are thinking.
