If I was in the NFL, I’d probably be at least, like, the first or second DB in the NFL. One, two or three, I’d say, because [Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback] Darrelle] Revis is pretty solid, [Arizona Cardinals corner] Patrick Peterson is pretty solid and you got my man Sherman holding it down. It’d be a tough position, but the level that I was playing football at at the time, I was — you know, it was fun for me and it came pretty easy. [...] And I only gave it a year in college, so for me, it’d be pretty scary to think about, you know, my future in football. If I really gave it my all, and stopped focusing on basketball, and gave everything I had on football, I’d probably be one of the best corners the NFL has ever seen.

he would have to play the slot receivers. Most of the wide-outs would be too tall for him

He's probably embellishing a little in terms of best the NFL ever saw, but he'd certainly be one of the best right now.   His height had nothing to do with it, he was a crazy CRAZY athlete back then.  And he made the NBA by focusing his time into it, I'm not gonna doubt if he'd given that focus to football instead he'd be in the NFL.
