Is it possible to start out on a nonharmonic tone then play its resolution?

For an example if I used an escape tone from F major to C major, using a B-flat note to G, once the chord changes from F major to C major. In all examples I've seen on non-harmonic tones it seems you have to start from the chord tones itself, then step or leap up to the non tone, but can you possibly just play the non chord itself without having to approach it by any of the chord tones?
