I always thought Micheal Vick was more suited to rugby than football, he can see openings in a defense very well, he can scramble with the best of them and has all the fabled NFL agility, but he doesn't have the arm accuracy to be a top flight QB. He wouldn't need arm accuracy to play rugby, with his footwork in avoiding the rush i would try and play him as an oversized halfback.
Tebow is another that would be a great rugby player, strikes me a Stephen Donald type of dude. Would also be keen to try out Vernon Gholston at 6, looks like another guy that is more suited to rugby
Look at Carlos Spencer, no one had seen any of that shit before, let alone coached it into him
In fact there is a current international that didn't start playing rugby till he was "old", i wish my old brain could remember his name.
Might Be Biased but Berrick Barnes is someone who excelled at other sports before sticking to rugby.
He excelled at Swimming, Cricket, Rugby League & Golf and was on a scholarship at Ipswich Grammar for swimming.
He then played rugby at Ipswich Grammar and the rest is history.
When he finished school he had the Reds, Brisbane Broncos & Queensland Bulls all chasing him.

Old bump, but this seemed relevant.
Aaron Shingler was also a pretty good cricket prospect before switching to Rugby.
