    I just found a line of PFT about J'Nathan Bullock testing the waters. If you are a college basketball fan then you may have heard of this Cleveland State player.

    From Cleveland State website about his high school playing career

    • Earned honorable mention all-state honors as a senior in football, playing every skill position on offense along with defensive end and linebacker.
    • Rushed 75 times for 865 yards (11.5 ypc) and five touchdowns as a senior.
    Also caught 19 passes for 436 yards (22.9 ypc) and completed 11-of-17 passes for 312 yards and a TD.

    He is set to work out on April 10. Also mentioned in the story is DeJuan Blair stating that the NFL could be a nice fallback option.

    So having not seen this guy play football at the college level, what do you think him as a draft prospect? I think as just a true athlete he could be a diamond in the rough, if anything big TE target in the red zone. It will be interesting to see how he does in the pro day and what position drills he works in.

    He is 6'5" 240lbs and plays F. What do you think about these type of prospects?

    Blair is nowhere near the athlete that Gates is, IMO.

    My bad. You quoted the whole article so I didn't know which one you were referring to.

    I honestly don't know enough about him.

    I don't get to see too many Cleveland St games and it's hard to judge how a basketball player would translate to football just by looking at a piece of paper.

    True, but just those few stats Jwarren14 posted, even though they are from high school, have to at least garner some amount of interest by NFL clubs. The fact of the matter is the dude is an all around athlete, and by the looks of things, a total baller at that. And if he does somehow end up getting in the NFL as an UDFA as Antonio Gates was, and has just a 5th of the success Gates has had, I think a team will be pretty happy with themselves. With that said, I wouldn't mind the Texans bringing this guy in for a looksie.
