This reminds me. So many excellent NFL TE's -- Graham, Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez, Julius Thomas, Martellus Bennett and Jordan Cameron, etc - started out as mediocre college basketball players.
Makes you wonder what would happen if someone who can actually play basketball at the highest level would do in the NFL. My guess is that you could put LeBron James on the field at the start of the 2014 season and he would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500+ yards receiving and 20+ touchdowns for the year. And the stats would only get better after that.
I've always thought of this too. Imagine Lebron in the red zone?? 6"8, 250 with speed and a crazy vert. Scary thought.
