What position?
What team?
How successful would he be?

discuss


I'd like to see Shaq on the Baltimore Ravens as a defensive back
Could easily see him knock down balls or even snatch a few interceptions

Terrible thread.

Shaq wouldn't even make it in the XFL.

Shack,
Tight End,
Drafted in 92 by the Cowboys,
Bad conditioning plus too much smoking later down the road and switching teams too much is what hurt shack,
If he managed to stay on Dallas for 15 years, average 15 games a season, and work his ass off Dallas might have 10 championships. Shack could go down as the greatest football player of all time, what DB/LB could defend him?
Emmitt had just got there in 1990, oh lawd. 15 years of Emmitt, Aikman, Shack, and Irvin would be scary. Hell maybe Deion wouldve even stayed with dallas when he signed with them in '95

honestly probably too big to play any offensive skill position seeing as he would get his knees chopped up on every tackle. i would say OL

Shaq on the O-line would be an immense waste of his talents. He'd be a beast as a Defensive end though. Or anywhere on the D-line. Imagine QB's trying to throw over a guy with his size and wingspan

Shaqs suit is comical and Peyton looking tall as ****

Shaq would blow his knees out in less than a month.

Shaq would be a complete failure. Utilizing pure weight he was great but when it comes to hitting and pushing he is just a big dead weight. Proof, he wrestled Big Baby Davis when Davis was still a senior in Hs and lost to a 300 lb 17 yr old. Hes a wimp...

His only option would be at Tackle where the risk to his knees would be minimized, and he could use his length and great feet, and good quickness for his size. I think he'd probably work best in a zone blocking scheme where they can utilize his quickness and lighter players are more acceptable than in a pure power scheme.

When Shaq came into the league he was 7'1, 285 and he was insanely athletic. Over his career he ballooned up to 360 or more, and he obviously lost some of that quickness but gained strength. I think he'd probably be best around 310 or 315 playing left tackle, dem long arms of peace.


Let's be honest though, he probably would never make it because of his height and his shiitty work ethic

I'm thinking of 7'1 Shaq.


No one that big and lanky could survive in the NFL....the tallest guy in NFL history was something like 6'10 and he didnt even last a season and that was back in the 70's


That big ass ball of awkward would get wrecked.

Outside of Ogden, tall linemen struggle.

ExampleL: King Dunlap is 6'9 and is horrendous at football.

Being really tall doesn't translate well on the offensive line because you can't get leverage since the smaller DT/DEs can explode at a lower level than you and **** your ass. That an hands to the face penalties all day.

A lotta people look small next to Shaq. Peyton is not one of those people. Damn he's tall. Was this taken in 2006? Where LT had his monster year, and Shaq just won a title.

backstage at the 2007 ESPY awards. They were all baking pretty nicely around that time.
What were LT and Shaq thinking when they got dressed though? Strong everything

Blows my mind how king dunlap is still in the nfl. He wasn't very good at auburn and got beat out by a freshman his senior year.

What??

Shaq was one of the most agile big men in NBA history, especially for his size. His footwork was amazing
