If you had to pick one current player from each sport to crossover, who would most likely excel? NFL to Rugby: Maybe Devin Hester from the Chicago Bears. Only his second year in the NFL, but he's a tough defender, great tackler, and on pace to be one of the best kick returners of all-time (already has 10 touchdowns). Great hands and also plays some offense. Put him in at Wing and never look back. Rugby to NFL: Joe Rokocoko. Big, strong, can make moves in the open field or run over you. Would be a good physical receiver, like Terrell Owens without the attitude problem.
