I'm not sure how this came up. But my buddies and I were watching the NFL games last Thursday (how bout them Cowboys?) and at one point someone conjectured, "Could any player in the NFL break 10 minutes in the 2 mile?"
Most everyone said "No way." Then someone raised the interesting possibility that there could be kickers that were ex soccer players with amazing natural endurance - maybe they could do it.
So here are my 2 questions
1) Is there anyone in the NFL who at their current level of midseason fitness could break 10 flat for 2 mile (heck even 3200)?
2) Is there anyone in the NFL who could break 10 flat if they trained for it?
PS. I'm more interested in hearing about non-kickers but it's all pretty interesting.
