The New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.  The overwhelming belief is that they will draft Zion Williamson with the top pick.

That is if he doesn’t quit playing basketball for a shot at the NFL.  Saints head coach Sean Payton wants to see Zion on the football field.

Payton took to Twitter and posted a picture of Zion in a Saints uniform with the caption, “Had a thought…….”

That would be an interesting move.  Where would Williamson play?  He has the arm of a quarterback, the athleticism of a highly skilled receiver and the size of a defensive end.  

With the way Payton uses Taysom Hill, imagine what he could do with Zion.
