Default What position would Ron Artest play in football?

I had an argument with a friend today about it. He is a Artest-hater and kept saying Artest wouldn't last for a minute on a football field. Guy is listed at 260 pounds, and he is strong as hell (seen him guard some huge centers like Ben Wallace; now that's strength). I argued that Artest would be able to play LB and maybe some TE. He wouldn't be a top player at those positions, but I think he could hold his own. And the Auburn Hill malice does not mean anything here; it is IRRELEVANT TO THIS ARGUMENT! Artest-haters always bring it up into every argument for some reason, even if it's not relevant to the specific argument.

Anyways, what do you think? What could Artest play in football?

I know he would love contact. Probably H Back or TE.

If we assume he doesn't change his physique, LB or TE.

Offense like TE or RB?

He's definately a defensive player. LB or DE. I dont see how none of you can see that is the best positions for a guy of his caliber. TE is worthless and HB is a waste. I dont even see him being good at that position.

Put him on the Ravens, 49ers. Get out of the way.

I'd play him at full back and just let him hit people.

TE or FB. Can't imagine him being a disciplined football player though. Think James Harrison without the football skills.

We know he couldn't play QB b/c he doesn't know who to pass it to with the game on the line.

He made the right play there

I could see him as either a FB or a tight end.
