Sportingnews.com had an interesting blurb today about Pitt center DeJuan Blair considering the NFL as a potential fallback option if his future in the NBA doesn't work out.
I had the same conversation with somebody in the Steelers front office late in the season last year.
I mentioned that Blair, with his massive wing span and quick feet would be an ideal offensive tackle. He'd just have to put on about 20 or so pounds - which I don't think would be a real problem for him.
The front office official agreed.
That said, Blair has a future in th NBA - if he can develop a 10 to 15-foot jump shot.
