Zion Williamson might have a career in the NFL if the NBA doesn’t work.

The former Duke basketball star went viral after a video surfaced online of him throwing a football an absurd distance while on a beach.

Watch his cannon for an arm below.

Is there anything Zion can’t do? He absolutely dominated the college basketball scene this past season, and will likely be the top pick in the NBA draft.

He’s a freak of nature athlete. He’s a walking human highlight reel. The young star does things that shouldn’t be humanely possible when it comes to basketball. (RELATED: Duke Loses To Michigan State In The Elite 8)

Now, we’re finding out he apparently has one of the strongest arms on the planet.

Seriously, he flicked his wrist and sent that ball flying about 80 yards down the beach. How many quarterbacks in the NFL do you think could put that kind of distance under a ball with such ease?

The answer is not many at all. He’s pretty much in a league of his own when it comes to athleticism.

I can’t wait to see what Zion does in the NBA, but I’m almost more curious at this point to know what he could do on the gridiron.

I’m not sure how accurate of a passer he is, but he has Matthew Stafford level strength when it comes to pure distance. What a freak of nature.
