    I suppose, but it doesn't seem like many Japanese people are interested.  Hell, the only one to put in the effort was Noriaki.  I would imagine most Japanese people would be more interested in becoming baseball players, as far as US sports go.

    There is a harvester on the countryside who could probably start as a Blocking Back.

  • It would probably help if you played Rugby growing up and then started playing American Football at The College and University Level.

    Very unlikely to happen.

    It's possible. Noriaki Kinoshita was signed by the Falcons one preseason as a WR/kick returner.

    Why not? If Garo Yepremian can become not only an NFL player but one who revolutionized the game, anyone can.

    Haruka Nakamuri

    Only one I could find.  2008-1012.  Played for the Ravens, then in his last year started 13 games for the Panthers.  He's American of Japanese descent.
