Scenario 1:
A hotshot OT is drafted and ends up being average. The coach decides to convert him to OG.

Scenario 2:
A hotshot OG is drafted and ends up being average. The coach decides to try him at OT.

Which one has a better chance to excell in his new position? Why?

The average guard doesn't have the good footwork to be an excellent tackle. The average tackle could just work on strength to become an outstanding guard...

Look no further than Jordan Black. Wasn't exactly a hotshot guard, but he played pretty well at guard. Sucked dick all year at tackle, though.

Moving inside better chance of excellence.

Tackle to Guard is the obvious safe bet.

OT convert to guard
Cornerback convert to safety


trying to do the reverse is usually a disaster

Chris did you wiki that? Because no way you came up with that on your own.

The poll is a shutout. Wow. No wonder I never like OGs in the 1st round.

Shitty tackles get hidden at guard all the time.

Jews are easy to covert; it's the damn Muslims that are so stubborn.

Ha tackles are to fat to pull and run.

It really depends on the body type of the athlete...

On average though, it's easier to shift inside than it is to shift outside.

That's the only reason I posted this question.
