    Well, the list of 108 nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018 just came out. Here it is:

    Quarterbacks: Randall Cunningham, Rich Gannon, Donovan McNabb, Steve McNair, Phil Simms

    Running Backs: Tiki Barber, Earnest Byner, Roger Craig, Corey Dillon, Eddie George, Edgerrin James, Lorenzo Neal, Fred Taylor, Herschel Walker, Ricky Watters

    Wide Receivers: Isaac Bruce, Donald Driver, Henry Ellard, Torry Holt, Chad Johnson, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Sterling Sharpe, Jimmy Smith, Rod Smith, Steve Smith (not to be confused with Steve Smith Sr.), John Taylor, Hines Ward

    Tight Ends: Mark Bavaro, Ben Coates, Ferrell Edmunds, Jay Novacek

    Offensive Linemen: Willie Anderson, Matt Birk, Tony Boselli, Lomas Brown, Ruben Brown, Ray Donaldson, Alan Faneca, Bill Fralic, Jay Hilgenberg, Chris Hinton, Kent Hull, Steve Hutchinson, Joe Jacoby, Mike Kenn, Kevin Mawae, Tom Nalen, Nate Newton, Bart Oates, Jeff Saturday, Richmond Webb, Steve Wisniewski

    Defensive Linemen: La'Roi Glover, Leonard Marshall, Keith Millard, Leslie O'Neal, Michael Dean Perry, Simeon Rice, Richard Seymour, Neil Smith, Greg Townsend, Kyle Vanden Bosch, Bryant Young

    Linebackers: Carl Banks, Cornelius Bennett, Tedy Bruschi, Seth Joyner, Ray Lewis, Greg Lloyd, Wilber Marshall, Clay Matthews Jr., Willie McGinest, Karl Mecklenburg, Sam Mills, Joey Porter, Darryl Talley, Zach Thomas, Brian Urlacher

    Defensive Backs: Eric Allen, Steve Atwater, Ronde Barber, LeRoy Butler, Brian Dawkins, Rodney Harrison, Ty Law, Albert Lewis, John Lynch, Dennis Smith, Everson Walls, Darren Woodson

    Kickers/Punters: Gary Anderson, Sean Landeta, Nick Lowery

    Special Teamers: Brian Mitchell, Steve Tasker

    Coaches: Don Coryell, Bill Cowher, Tom Flores, Mike Holmgren, Jimmy Johnson, Chuck Knox, Buddy Parker, Richie Petitbon, Dan Reeves, Marty Schottenheimer, Clark Shaughnessy, Dick Vermeil

    Looking at the list, the two names that stand out are Ray Lewis and Randy Moss because they were both featured among the Top 100 of All-Time list that came out seven years ago, and as I've stated earlier, anyone who made that list deserves to be enshrined in Canton. Now, keep in mind that Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer are the Senior Finalists and Bobby Beathard is the Contributor Finalist. Looking at the list, who do you think will make the Hall of Fame in 2018?
