College basketball takes center stage this month with the NCAA tournament, one of the greatest sporting events in the world. Sixty-eight teams from all tiers of Division I come together to crown a champion in a winner-take-all event played out over three weeks.
It's one of a handful of events college football fans can use to help them get through the long offseason, and if you try hard enough, you can imagine what some of these athletes would be like playing in pads and throwing or carrying the ball rather than dribbling it.
We've put together a list of standouts from the college basketball ranks, most of whom will be on display during the NCAA tourney, who would probably make for great football players. For arguments' sake, we're going to assume these hoopsters would play for their school's football team, but in the case of those from schools without an FBS program, we've picked the next best option.
