1. Mike Trout, running back – There isn’t anything in Trout’s background suggesting he played football, but it looks like he could run the 40-yard dash in sub 4.4 seconds. He is a solid 6-foot-1 and weighs 210 pounds with obvious strength.
2. Justin Verlander, quarterback – It’s not just that Verlander is 6-foot-5 and has an incredibly strong arm, but he has quick feet and runs well.
3. Austin Jackson, safety – Excellent speed and solid ballhawking skills. A smart player, who would be in the right position at all times.
