I can't recall any time where a BBall player has ever converted to Football and played anything besides TE. I'm sure there's some exceptions, but it seems like they are always TE's.
But yeah, guys that are good basketball players and convert tend to have pretty solid hands compared to other football players, so it's no surprise they end up at TE or WR. Creekmur is kind of odd since he was more of a 3-pt shooter type and didn't need the body positioning and hands of a big.
Side note: There's no easier role to fill on a bball team that spot-up shooter. That's probably an argument for another day, though.
