Gabe Brown, Wide Receiver

This pick comes with a huge asterisk next to it, as Gabe Brown’s knees would probably be shattered after his first reception. But in a perfect world, he’d be a great wide receiver who could go up and snag anything.

Just look at some of his alley-oop finishes. The alley-oop passer, usually Cassius Winston, could throw the most effortless pass up and Brown would find it and slam it down.

Malik Hall, Defensive End

I like to think that Malik Hall would look identical to Chase Young in a football uniform. I don’t know why, but he just seems like he’d be an extremely menacing defensive end. Hall is one of the best athletes on this basketball team and we’ve already seen him dunk on a couple of guys in his first year. His speed and power would pay off on the football field, and he’d be getting to the quarterback multiple times per game.

Joey Hauser, Tight End

I haven’t seen enough of Joey Hauser to really make a huge judgement here, but out of all the guys on this team, he seems the most like a tight end. He’s not the fastest guy on the court, but more athletic than people think. And despite not being speedy, he’s still extremely graceful in the way that he moves and handles the ball.

You have to remember, he was a five-star recruit coming out of high school. He’s one of many guys who would have their knee caps shattered within a couple of plays out on the field, but he’d do a darn good job in those couple of plays.
