Shohei Ohtani is absolutely dominating baseball with the bat, and his arm, and here, we look at four Las Vegas Raiders who could play both ways as well.
One of the biggest stories in sports right now is the play of Shohei Ohtani, who is taking Major League Baseball by storm. Not only is he one of the best pitchers in the league, but he is the best power hitter, begging the question, which Las Vegas Raiders players could possibly play both ways in the NFL.
Here, we look at four current Las Vegas Raiders who could pull double duty in 2021.
Las Vegas Raiders: 4 players who could pull a Shohei Ohtani and play both ways
4. Johnathan Hankins, DL –> OL
With so many changes up front along the defensive line, Johnathan Hankins has become a constant and has been one of the more consistent players for this Raiders defense. Heading into 2021, he will be expected to start in Gus Bradley’s 4-3 scheme, and the hope is, he can continue to develop against the run, and the pass.
A monster of a man, Hankins could also have the size to play offense, and with so many injuries along the offensive line in 2020, could he have stepped in and played? While that is not likely the case, of all the defensive linemen in this group, Hankins is the one I could see going on the other side of the ball, clearing monster holes for running back Josh Jacobs, and protecting Derek Carr.
