Never seen a 6'8 guy run a 40 with that kind of athleticism but i would expect it to be much faster than 4.92 for LeBron...

Lebron is straight line fast. he has no wiggle
his hips are extremely tight and stiff

when was the 1st and last time u have ever seen Lebron shake a defender? seriously?

in the NFL u rarely run in a straight line fpor more than 10 yards.

when was the last time a player 6'9 had some success in the NFL?
its a low mans game. and 6'9 is a lot of area to hit or jam

Lebron would find little success in the NFL

eye-hand coordination and good hands.

Im pretty sure he has both, no mo.

He'd be a good route runner with the ability to go up for the ball. But probably wouldn't have the ground work/shakes to be considered a "star"

Where that dude get those times from? 4.9 40?
I know a lot of people on here are always gassing up their 40s, but there's NO WAY Bron runs a 4.9.

Vertical Leap (from standing position)LeBron James: 44 inchesCalvin Johnson: 48 inchesThe presumption is that NBA players can jumphigher than NFL players. To some degree that is true. However, thereare DBs and WRs who can indeed jump higher than LeBron and otherbasketball players. The ability to go up and tenaciously snatch theball at its highest point is critical for a receiver.
never mind that you pointed out lebron's height difference two paragraphs ago, a 6'8" guy who can jump through the roof is definitely going to have problems getting over these 6' corners.

Comparing the two would be like: Saying a soccer player can kick field goals

LeBron quit football after his sophomore season due to a wrist injuryhe suffered in a game (wow what a tough guy…imagine what’ll happen ifBob Sanders were to get a shot at him).
if bob sanders could get on the field for more than 5 minutes.

And what many don’t seem to realize is that LeBron is way behind thelearning curve. What every other NFL player learned about the game incollege…he did not.
see: gates, antonio.

the entire article is quotes like that, the kid doesn't know what he's talking about.  i'm not saying lebron would be a sure thing, but this is a joke.

He was an All-State WR his Sophomore year of HS and helped lead the team to the state finals, and i'm pretty sure he was recruited to play football by some colleges.

Couldn't the NFL have a lockout in the same season as the NBA does though?

He was, it was by the best colleges in the nation at the time too.
Ohio St. Miami and i think even USC. Those are the ones i can remember but there were many more colleges recruiting him that were as big as those colleges i just named.
Lebron can catch the ball, but it would take some getting used to getting hit in the process. NBA is a wussy league, and it's made him one himself.
