PostSubject: Who can make it in the NFL?   Who can make it in the NFL? Icon_minitimeSun Nov 08, 2009 4:27 am

i was thinking the other day what australians could make it in the NFL....

we all know that we have a few afl guys over there but do you think any league or union players could make it?

willie mason had a much around with the giants a few years ago and it just makes you think that a few players would be able to rip it up if they knew enough about the game...


so who do you think would make it in the NFL... and what position would they play.

ill start it off by saying inglis could be a mad TE

Fuifui Moimoi would be a awesome FB/RB

i would love Inglis to be a TE or WR in the NFL he would go well

yeah fui would be a good FB.

i think inglis is too bulky to be a WR atm... but as a TE he would have the size to block and also have the hands to catch.

Im not a huge NFL fan. I knw the game and stuff but I dont knwo positions, apart from quarterback and kicker
Thats not the point

Would Lance Franklin be a chance, the first AFL player not to be a kicker??

i dunno about lance franklin.... i couldnt see him being anything more than a kicker...

from what ive seen from him he doesnt have enough pace to be a WR. and i doubt he would be a good hitter since he comes from AFL (no offence). so other than a kicker i cant see him being a NFL player

None whatsoever.

I do think someone like Fevola could be a Punter. But apart from that, I don't see anyone in the AFL or NRL that suits the NFL to be perfectly honest.

Some of the tries i've seen Michael Jennings score have looked like a runningbacks run, but he probably needs to bulk up a bit.

In the NFL, players most of the time only need one or two skills to perfect and they are good. A WR only needs to be fast, have good hands and a mixture of agility and a leap. The players we have in the NRL train for a whole bunch of skills like tackling, strength, agility etc.

we have to remember that they wear a shit load of padding and that makes them look a lot bigger than they actually are

Michael Jennings would be a good running back, impossible to tackle, with his pace of the mark, few would be able to get him before the first down mark. He would be an exceptional kick/punt returner as well

Darren Sproles and Ray Rice dispel that garbage. You'd just need to pair him up with a durable power-back, he wouldn't be able to manage 16 games/year as a feature back.
