Athletes display a freakish amount of talent and size. After years of hard work and dedication, some players have become some of the strongest people in the world. Here is a look at 20 athletes who could become body builders.

St. Louis may not look intimidating on the ice with all of those pads, but he is a beast. One of the hardest working players in the NHL, he is a fitness guru. Pound for pound one of the league's strongest players, St. Louis works out by simulating a game, taking rests, but going hard during sets. All of the work has paid off for the Hart Trophy winner and Stanley Cup Champion in 2004.

Evans is not the guy you put out there to score points. He is your rebounding specialist, carving space with his size to help your team obtain possession. He plays hard, sets hard screens and is not intimidated by anybody. This guy definitely has what it takes to be a body builder.

18. Yasiel Puig

This dude is a freak. He is running around and flying all over the field. At age 23, he is not only becoming one of the MLB's premiere talents, but he is also one of the league's strongest and most athletic players. In an era that hopefully will not have too many steroid users, Puig could become one of the most fit players the league has seen in a long time.

17. Zdeno Chara

Chara is huge. The man stands at 6-foot-9 and towers over most players in the NHL. His nutrition is good and he stays healthy, helping prepare him for the long haul of the NHL season which would translate into the world of body building fairly well.

16. Miguel Cabrera

If you have watched the maturation of Miguel Cabrera over his career, you know that this guy has gotten a lot bigger since his first years. The Tigers' superstar has a combination of natural talent, focus and strength, which makes him one of the most versatile hitters in baseball history. All of those attributes would help him become a body builder.

15. Nikola Pekovic

This Montenegrin monster must put fear in the eyes of opponents when he is charging at them. He is one of the strongest people in the NBA, and in a fast-paced offense, he has shown the ability to rebound and run the floor at high levels. This guy's grit and determination, combined with his big muscles, make him a prime candidate to be a body builder.

14. Roy Hibbert

Hibbert is a big dude. The seven-footer has an absurd amount of strength. There is a vine of him doing three reps of hi-pulls at 325 pounds. That is impressive, along with his ability to block shots on some of the best players in the league when they are just about to dunk it (sorry, Carmelo Anthony). His focus can be off at times, but with his size and strength, body building could be a possibility.

13. Giancarlo Stanton

Another one of baseball's brightest young stars, Stanton looks like an amazing talent. A freak specimen, Stanton crushes the baseball. He hits the ball hard and he can hit it pretty far too. This guy could be a freak in a handful of sports, and body building would be no exception.

12. Vernon Davis

Davis is a perfect combination of strength and passion. The dude is the beast and he has also been one of the best players at his position in the NFL for a few years now. He is not afraid to show his emotion as a great teammate. His hard work and dedication would make him a solid body builder.

11. Chris Davis

Davis burst onto the scene as one of baseball's strongest players during 2013. He led the MLB in long balls that year. He can flat out crush the ball. Apparently he likes to use Adderall, so that will be a boost to his weight lifting, but it seems like he is dedicated to keeping in shape and staying strong. The dude is jacked.

A-Roid may not be the most pure guy on this list, but a man who is as dedicated to being strong as him with the results he has found has to make it. He is a very strong dude and does have a passion for fitness despite being a cheater. This guy could lift with the best of them in any sport.

9. Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard is an animal. He can jump out of the gym and is one of the best defenders in the NBA, he can also bang with the strongest players. He throws dunks down with authority. His Superman mindset must be used as his motivation. He makes even some of the bigger players in the league look tiny.

8. Jon Beason

The injury-prone Beason still finds the time to be a straight up beast. He is the middle linebacker, quarterback and brains of the New York Giants defense and he is all over the field, diving around and making big hits. His intelligence and grit would make him a pretty good body builder.

7. Adrian Peterson

Peterson, as one of the fastest running backs in the NFL, he is also one of the hardest to bring down. He is so strong. No arm tackles will be enough to bring this man down. He works hard, runs hard and lifts big. He will carry anybody down the field if it means finding the end zone.

6. David West

West is a pretty big dude. One of the bigger guys in all of the NBA. He is a threat in the post on offense to do pretty much whatever he wants. Not too many players can match his physicality and his ability to stay in shape and continue to get stronger as his career has gone on, as he continues to impress.

5. Ernie Sims

Sims is a beast. His strength is noticed right away. He can bench 225 pounds 25 times. That is pretty impressive. This guy is just as good at lifting as he is at football.

4. LeBron James

Not only is he the best player in the NBA, but he may also be the biggest. From "Hell Week" workouts with Kevin Durant to individual ones, James is one of the most dedicated in the game. Four MVP's and two NBA titles later, it seems as though the results are showing just that.

3. J.J. Watt

Watt is an incredible talent. He is faster than you, he is longer than you and he is definitely bigger than you. This guy can flat out play the game of football. He is so intent on crushing the quarterback and winning football games that his body building abilities would have to be similar. The guy is a freak of nature.

2. James Ihedigbo

Ihedigbo is just another beast. There are more pictures with of him on Google working out than he is playing. The guy's arms are bigger than the average human being. He is a giant who could probably walk right into the business of body building.

Think about lining up under center and looking into the secondary with LaRon Landry staring at you. That would not be fun. The guy is a physical specimen unlike any other in a league with a lot of big dudes. A 500-pound squat and 425-pound bench press speak for themselves. This guy is the ultimate beast.
