Nate Robinson, one of the shortest players in the NBA, would have been a stud defensive back in the NFL.
No, really, he would have been.
Robinson is the only player on this list to actually play college football and was a projected NFL draft lock before switching his talents to basketball full-time.
Robinson played football at the University of Washington, where he was on a football scholarship, not basketball. Surprisingly, he was a walk-on for the basketball program.
Robinson was one of the best defensive backs in the league, and his size was not an issue due to his 44-inch vertical leap.
Nate Robinson had the quickness to stay with any receiver and the ability to jump over them and snatch the ball.
Quarterbacks did not throw his way.
Imagine what life would be like if instead of Nate's high-flying dunks, we were talking about his pick-sixes.
