Top 10 NFL Players Not in the Hall of Fame

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Donnie Shell

Donnie Shell was a vaunted Safety for the Steelers dynasty teams. Unfortunately he suffers much like L.C. greenwood in that too many of his teammates are already enshrined. Hopefully someday the Seniors committee can right this wrong.

Absolutely- 51 picks. Strong against the run, and a sellout hitter.

Herb Adderly, Ken Houston, Willie Wood, Yale Lary all in with less int's than Donnie.

42 Harvey Martin

Until DeMarcus Ware broke The Cowboys sack record, Harvey Martin held the mark. He was a dominating DE during the Cowboys of the seventies and early eighties. He had the goods to be considered for the HOF.

43 Jerry Smith

Jerry Smith definitely belongs in the HOF. I was never a Skins fan, but this guy's record on the field cannot be dismissed, and that's supposed to count for something...

44 Clay Matthews Jr.
45 Pat Fisher

Belonged in the HOF years ago, but not many post season honors may be keeping him out.

46 Brian Urlacher

I have Brian Urlacher in 2018 class. I think that class has enough room for Ray Lewis and Urlacher.

Very underrated. The retired leader of the bears defense

He was awesome. Play maker. Tackling machine. Leader. When he left defense not the same.

He was a machine for the Bears in that entire 2000's decade. - htoutlaws2012

47 Boomer Esiason

Just on the outside looking in. Thought there were years where he was exceptional and years where he was overrated.

The replacement for Ken Anderson.

Best play-action QB ever, not even a close second and he won a league MVP award

48 Wes Chandler

Not good enough. Fits in below Isaac Curtis, Stanley Morgan and Harold Carmichael and none of those guys are in the HOF.

49 Lamar Lundy

On the outside looking in and I don't see that changing.

50 Cade McNown

Yah, funny, I think Mark Sanchez should be in the Hall of Fame before him

Is this a joke. Let's put Rex Grossman in as well.

Nine seasons, one MVP, one Comeback Player, one Raiders Super Bowl.

51 Henry Ellard

If Lynn Swann is in, Henry should have gone in a long time ago! Henry Ellard has 13,777 career yards to Lynn's mediocre 5,462 career yards. Henry has seven 1,000 plus yard seasons! Lynn Swann has none! How did Lynn Swann get in the Hall of fame?

Henry Ellard was very, very good but like Irving Fryar it may take the Seniors pool to get him elected a long ways down the road.

People say Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt were the best Rams WRs, but many forget Ellard

52 Bryant Young

He is so underrated. he played from 1994 to 2007

Bryant Young had a lot of skill and should get in someday.

Hard to be underrated as a 49er, especially during their glory ears but this is the case for Young. He is a borderline HOFamer.

53 Zach Thomas

A great linebacker for the dolphins. he is the brother in law of legend Jason Taylor (he also played with Taylor for most of his career)

Very underrated linebacker but he reminds me of some of the LB's from the sixties and seventies that did not get elected until they entered the Senior Pool

Zach Thomas was amazing. My 2017 class: Alan Faneca, Terrell Owens, Ladanian Tomlinson, John Lynch, and Jason Taylor. Thomas has more tackles than anyone in the Hall of Fame. Randy Gradishar, who has the most tackles ever, isn't even in yet. I think he gets in the 2017 class as the Senior canidate.

54 Jason Elam

Holds kicking records many kicking yards possibly the greatest kicker of all time

Too many Kickers to pick before Elam and only one pure kicker has been elected to HOF.

55 Joe Klecko

Has to share spotlight with Gastineau but was far the superior player. Could do everything that Suh does today. Klecko was versatile and dominant.

All -pro 3 different positions,a no brainer,i don't understand the lack of respect for the man.

Joe Klecko may have been good but he is going to have a lonng wait. I predict he will get in in 2034. (that is a long wait)

56 Houston Antwine

Unfortunately played his whole career in the old AFL, but was one of the best defensive lineman during that time. Would have been a stalwart in either league. Played very similar to John Randle.

57 Ben Coates

The best receiving TE not in the hall of fame and was an exceptional blocker. 499 career TE receptions is among the top ten all-time for TE's

58 Cliff Harris

Cliff was a tremendous safety for the Cowboys dynasty in the seventies. Made big plays in some of the Cowboys biggest games. He should have been inducted years ago.

59 Todd Christensen

Was a great catching TE that got off to a late career start. Was part of the TE trifecta of the early eighties with Kellen Winslow and Ozzie Newsome. Both of those guys are in the HOF and only Christensen has a Super Bowl ring.

60 Jimmy Patton

Played on that great Giants team and had 52 interceptions and 5 pro bowls in a career that lasted only about 10 years.

An underrated name from the past. Had a similar career to Jack Butler who was named to the HOF a few years ago. So far he has not been nominated by the Seniors committee.
