3 guys this draft got drafted with little football experience, Margus Hunt, Menilik Watson and Ansah
And there are probably 30 other "circus strong men" who have tried to play football but flamed out, of course no one talks about people who weren't successful at football. We only hear about the success stories.
Hunt and others have proven that a raw athlete CAN be successful picking up the game, it's just not very likely to happen. Like anything else, you only hear about the success stories. I can roughly recall a bunch of stories of olympians and other super athletes trying out for football teams in college and the NFL, and then never hearing about them again.
All I'm saying is that this guy has just as much a chance to make the team as any other UFA.
