Gus Frerotte is 6'3 237..... I bet he would make a good RB. :shakeno:

Philter is right... although I believe that most CBs and WRs have the physical attributes and skills to play both positions.finsnchips said:someone like Chambers has the speed, size and athleticism.
Physical attributes and skills (IE Speed, jumping ability, ability to learn and understand routes and coverages) dont translate into game time reps. You have a lot of college players that can play both ways, WR and CB because of their physical skills. When they come to the NFL though, its one or the other. The NFL is so much deeper and faster than college its impossible to master all your coverage schemes on defense and your routes on offense. Although there are a lot of players that have the physical skills, they just dont have the time and reps to be able to play both ways.finsnchips said:Philter is right... although I believe that most CBs and WRs have the physical attributes and skills to play both positions.
