There are a lot of well deserving names. Names like Donovan McNabb, Steve McNair, Tiki Barber, Herschel Walker, Isacc Bruce, and Bill Cowher are names that really stick out when looking at this list. They are all great players and coaches I watched growing up. Ray Lewis could be one and done when it comes to being on the ballot, but like I said, there are a lot of deserving names on this list.

On “Selection Saturday”, the day before the Super Bowl is played, 18 finalists will be presented to the 48-member committee. The list will consist of 15 modern finalists, senior finalists Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer, and the contributor finalist Bobby Beathard. The committee will then make its selection of the 2018 Hall of Fame class. It will be a fun process to follow over the coming months and I personally cannot wait to see who gets in.
