carter, rice, emmit, sharpe, and randel get my vote....dawson wont get the nod over some of those guys, this is a hell of a class of eligibles.

lebeau is a lock though, he'll get in just because of the hype of him not being in yet

This years class is stacked.....I think Tim Brown and Andre Reed should be locks as well but only 5 can get in......Some really tough decisions to be made for sure.....

I agree Carter, Smith, Sharpe, Rice, all are locks.....I think Randel deserves it to but I just don't how Brown are Reed can't make it.....But I also don't see three WR's getting in the same class....Carter has been screwed in the past and Rice of course is a first ballot......

Carter, Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Shannon Sharpe, and Reed would be my picks for the modern era guys. Lebeau absolutely better be, beyond a doubt, a lock for it! You could make a definite case for guys like Richard Dent & Randel too.

I would love to see Dawson get in, he's got the career to back it up for sure, but I think this year with all those other big names he'll probably get passed by.

Dirt won't make it this time, but he was truley great.

Makes you realise how important a center is to a team.

We need a new dirt, draft doesn't look great so not sure where we're gonna get one!
