We’ve done this many times before with different athletes – “What would they be like in another sport?” One that always came to mind was LeBron James if he were to play tight end in the NFL. LeBron was a 5-star wide receiver in high school so it only keeps us wondering how good would he actually be in the NFL? Now, the new thought is Zion Williamson.
Williamson, drafted first overall by the New Orleans Pelicans a couple months back, has paid some visits to the Saints during his time in his new city, with Sean Payton even jokingly asking the Pelicans if he can keep him. Though we’ll likely never get to see Zion in shoulder pads and a helmet, The Checkdown created him as a player in Madden 20, and as you’d expect, he’s unstoppable.
