Actually I don't know that the transition would be that easy. While OLine, to my eyes, is largely about technique and positioning, DLine, at least interior, is about power. A guy like Mike or Maurkice Pouncey might get pushed around pretty good playing DT, despite being a great center. Someone like Montrae Holland, on the other hand, might thrive at something like pushing the pocket.
I'm in the crowd that thinks Claiborne would be a good WR. He attacks the ball the right way, and is athletic enough to be a solid route runner...that should more than make up for a lack of top end speed.
With the relationship receivers and orders have with each other, O Line, D Line is a distant number one in terms of how close they are.
You used the example of the Pouncey brothers and while you're probably right in saying they can't be 3-4 nose tackles, I think they'd fit fine as a 4-3 D Tackle. Plus, keep in mind most every player on our team has probably played the opposite side of the ball in HS, just watch Lee using his RB moves on every pic he gets
