Re: Which position do you think requires more experience and athleticism: RB vs LB?
Why would a 6-pack be a requirement? It's not like a coach is going to ask everyone to lift up their shirts before he decides on who plays RB. Some teams will use a big power back. It depends on things like what offensive system they run and what kind of talent they have. You don't have to be the best athlete to play RB. You can be a better RB without being a better athlete, though they'll probably give the edge to the faster kid. There's a number of factors they take into consideration. Go out for whatever position you think is most comfortable. If you want to play RB the most then go out for that or if you want to play WR the most, then go for that.
