Colin Cowherd: “To me there are ten players in the NFL right now who are first-ballot Hall of Famers and most play very key positions. At quarterback, if Patrick Mahomes retired today he’d be a Hall of Famer. I think Aaron Rodgers, who I always liked better than Favre, is a slam-dunk Hall of Famer. Travis Kelce could retire today, he’s in, and so is his brother, Jason, at center. Trent Williams might be the best left tackle ever, he’s on a short list. Aaron Donald is the second-best interior lineman I’ve ever seen to Reggie White. Von Miller and Myles Garrett on the edge just play different and look different. Bobby Wagner has been a 9-time All-Pro, he’s a Hall of Famer. And Justin Tucker—every kicker at some point becomes unstable, a little bit of a head case you’re not sure about...he is the automatic in a position with no automatics. These are the Hall of Famers currently playing. Then there is a list of about 6 or 7 guys that when you watch the television they literally jump through the screen. They feel like they’re going to be Hall of Famers. Joe Burrow is just different, he can go toe-to-toe with Mahomes and he doesn’t feel inferior. Justin Jefferson is Randy Moss. Nick Bosa the edge for the Niners, Micah Parsons, TJ Watt is unblockabe, Fred Warner is the best linebacker in football and has range I’m not sure I’ve ever seen from a linebacker, and Patrick Surtain—if you’ve ever seen a Broncos game live, he’s the best player on the field at CORNER, he’s that dominant.”
Watch Colin Cowherd drop his list of the ten active NFL players who would be first-ball Hall of Famers if they retired today, and also list seven other players who Colin believes will eventually become future Hall of Famers.
