Which players would you want to play out of position?

On Monday’s PFT Live, former Colts punter Pat McAfee said that he was one Curtis Painter injury away from playing quarterback during one of Indy’s many losses in the 2011 season. On Tuesday’s PFT Live, we’ll pick current players that we’d want playing out of their normal position.

To make the best possible list, I need your suggestions. So I can pawn them off during the show as my own.

We’ll debut the segment at 7:35 a.m. ET. But the show is currently on (I’m typing this while I talk with suprizingyl few typso), so you should tune in to NBC Sports Radio. McAfee joins me at 7:00 a.m. ET for the final two hours on NBCSN.

And for the last half hour, there’s something that’s actually a sporting event on NBCSN, but we’ll be with you on NBC Sports Radio until 9:00 a.m. ET.

    Suh at QB, behind a really bad D-Line.

  2. JMClarkent says: Jun 20, 2017 7:07 AM

    Sebastian Janikowski tops my list – put the big fella in at TE/FB.

  3. franktuttle says: Jun 20, 2017 7:10 AM

    Meant Suh behind really bad O-Line.

  4. kingfoles says: Jun 20, 2017 7:26 AM

    Lebron James at tight end.

  5. nolesshabitual says: Jun 20, 2017 7:27 AM

    Edelman at QB is an obvious one.

  6. bigmark67 says: Jun 20, 2017 7:33 AM

    Kaepernick as a tackling dummy.

  7. hitman21st says: Jun 20, 2017 7:38 AM

    Gronk at Linebacker covering Watt at Tight End.

  8. scoops1 says: Jun 20, 2017 8:07 AM

    I’d like to see Gronk hitting field goals

  9. 12brichandfamous says: Jun 20, 2017 8:10 AM

    Russell Wilson kick returner: unstoppable

  10. factschecker says: Jun 20, 2017 8:14 AM

    I’d like to see Gronk as a DE/OLB and JJ Watt at TE.

  11. bigbluedeadhead says: Jun 20, 2017 8:16 AM

    Snacks Harrison at fullback

  12. bigbluedeadhead says: Jun 20, 2017 8:17 AM

    Eli Manning at PR/KR FTW

  13. boknowsvt says: Jun 20, 2017 8:19 AM

    Tom Brady at WR in the mid-80’s going ove the middle against Ronnie Lott.

  14. QB Film Room says: Jun 20, 2017 8:25 AM

    Eric Decker could play QB. He also was a really good basketball player. Remember playing him 1 on 1 around Year 2000 at a camp. good bball player

  15. TheDudeAbides says: Jun 20, 2017 8:33 AM

    Rob Gronkowski at DE.

  16. elyasm says: Jun 20, 2017 8:39 AM

    Speaking of tanked seasons, the 2011 Suck for Luck campaign is probably the most obvious example of all. Funny that it never seems to get mentioned in the articles about tanking.

  17. nhpats says: Jun 20, 2017 8:49 AM

    Richard Sherman at nose tackle

  18. absolutevisuals says: Jun 20, 2017 8:53 AM

    Everybody. Bring back two way players.

  19. shackster says: Jun 20, 2017 9:03 AM

    Tom Brady as holder for Mason Crosby. That way Crosby will have the ball inflated EXACTLY how he wants them and there is always the chance that Brady will get a good swift kick in the head….just sayin’…

  20. BarbequeTime says: Jun 20, 2017 9:04 AM

    This is posdibly the most interesting article/chat topic PFT has put up in a long time. I just want to point that out so to encourage more of the same.

    Actually Kaep as a WR might be interesting.

    Brady actually has gone out as a WR on a couple plays Belichick put in before.

    Snacks as a kick returner. Pretty much just walk it down.

  24. streetyson says: Jun 20, 2017 9:11 AM

    I’d like to see Flacco play as an elite QB.

  25. bertagnolli says: Jun 20, 2017 9:27 AM

    I’d like to see Darren Sproles at Offensive Guard. To have him standing presnap framed by some 6’7″ behemoths would be fun to see.

  26. dawnkeyshow says: Jun 20, 2017 9:28 AM

    JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney would make a ridiculous pair of tight ends.

    But it would be far more entertaining to see offense play some defense. I want to see Drew Brees covering the middle while Kelvin Benjamin runs a slant.

    Tanking never gets mentioned in articles about tanking because people post about it in threads about playing out of position…

    Speaking of which, your post is playing out of position.

    Mo Sanu at QB for the Falcons. He has the arm.

  29. I Understand The Catch Rule says: Jun 20, 2017 10:08 AM

    I’d like to see how Eddie Lacy would do as a nose tackle in a 3 – 4

  30. patfic5 says: Jun 20, 2017 10:18 AM

    It’s the Summer of George

  31. johnnnyschatzan says: Jun 20, 2017 10:23 AM

    I’d like to see Tyrod Taylor play QB

  32. aarons444 says: Jun 20, 2017 10:29 AM

    Dom Capers – unemployed
