I think Shockey is a great NFL tight-end. The guy is a beast physically at 6'5'' and 250. He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.58 which is a great time for a man at his position and of his size. If he didn't get hurt so frequently his career could be really special. With that being said, I don't think he is very intelligent. I understand that football players are special athletes and extremely prideful when it comes to their profession. Not only are they all extremely gifted physically, but they are some of the toughest people on earth, playing one of the most violent games week in and week out. I still think if Lebron decided to dedicate himself to football he would be a star. Who's going to cover the guy? He would instantly be the tallest offensive skill position player in the league. Once he started to workout specifically on football he would add another 20-30 pounds to his frame. If you flanked him out wide he would almost have a foot height advantage on most of the corners and safeties, and he would out weight them by 80 or more pounds. If you put a linebacker on him he would still be a half foot taller and out weight them by 40 to 50 pounds. And as far as his 40 yard dash time is concerned, I would bet everything in my possession that he is much, much faster than a 4.9. There are NFL offensive linemen that can run a 4.9 forty. Unfortunately, with the new one hundred plus million dollar contract Lebron is going to sign this off-season we will never seen Lebron in an NFL uniform, and if we did I would be convinced that he is even less intelligent than Shockey.
