With the offseason underway, here’s a look at some players who are most poised to become Pro Bowlers.
— ESPN.com”There’s no question that a lot of the stars of the game this year have already made their way to the Hall of Fame.
And there are still some very talented players who don’t make it.
So, what we’re looking at is players who have made it to the Pro Bowl, have a Hall of Famer in their locker room, and could make their mark as a Hall-of-Fame player someday.
Here are a few players who I think have the ability to do that:The most obvious of these guys is Ray Lewis, the former Detroit Lions running back who played for three teams during his nine-year career.
He has a Hall’s ring and won the MVP in 2002 with the Dallas Cowboys.
Lewis has one of the highest ceilings of any player in the game right now.
Lewis is probably the most talented back of all time, and he’s going to have a long career in the NFL.
He was a key part of the Cowboys championship team and is going to get plenty of opportunities to make an impact on the field.
Lewis also has a good chance to be enshrined in Canton.
He had a fantastic career in Detroit and will be looking to build on that success in Cantor.
The fact that he’s also the team’s most valuable player is going a long way toward justifying that.
Lewis is also in line for a Pro Bowl selection.
The Falcons drafted him in the fourth round (No. 45 overall) of the 2007 draft and he made his NFL debut in 2008.
He hasn’t been a regular starter in his five NFL seasons, but he has emerged as a reliable backup to a very talented running back in Tevin Coleman.
Lewis also has good range as a pass-catcher and is versatile enough to play anywhere on the offensive line.
Lewis has a great chance of being enshrined after the Lions’ championship in 2015.
He is still a rookie and has a very good chance of making the Hall.
But there are other teams who might have a chance to take him in a draft, and that’s the way the system works in the National Football League.
The other two guys in the top five of this list are John Lynch and Deion Sanders.
Lynch was a first-round pick by the 49ers in 2004.
He played in six seasons, including five with the Broncos.
He won the Pro Bowler award in 2003 with the New York Giants and has been a productive pass-catching back ever since.
Sanders is a very solid running back for the Patriots.
He spent three seasons in Denver, but has never made it past the second round of the NFL Draft.
Sanders was a sixth-round draft pick by Green Bay in the 2014 draft and was productive for three seasons there.
Sanders has one Pro Bowl ring and one All-Pro selection to his name.
Sanders could become a Hall member someday, but there’s no way he’s playing in Cantona right now, either.
Sanders and Lynch could both make the Pro Football Hall of Famers list someday, too.
They’re both very talented runners who have had success in the Pro game.
Lynch could become one of those Hall of famers someday, as well.
He also has one Hall of honor on his resume, and I think he would be a Hall MVP candidate.
The two have great potential.
Sanders and Lynch are two very talented, productive running backs who could be Hall of fames.
