5 Current NFL Players Who Are Future Hall of Famers

The NFL Hall of Fame is often a career peak for players. These are 5 NFL players likely to enter the Hall of Fame.

The National Football League (NFL) is one of the most influential football leagues around the world, and has the highest regular viewing on TV and fan attendance. It’s no wonder that more players within the NFL are beginning to live up to the ever-increasing standards set by the media. The prospect of entering the Hall of Fame is something that drives a lot of NFL players who are striving to improve themselves and work on their stamina, strength, power, and technique in order to be considered for induction into the Hall of Fame. Historically, some of the most iconic figures of the league worked hard to create a platform for the younger players. The current rookies are a result of training, discipline, and have a lot to thank their predecessors for. 

Thanks to the integration of the media, betting has never been so widely covered. That is why Fanduel’s NFL odds is a commonly accessed site used to track the latest predictions and accurate odds. These are some current NFL players who are on track to be future Hall of Famers. Each have their own series of strengths and weaknesses, and have overcome background issues to get to where they are today. They have a lot of rewards and record breaks collectively under their belts, and continue to raise the bar higher and higher for NFL players. 

Jessie Bates III – Cincinnati Bengals 

Firstly, at 24 years old, Jessie Bates is one of the most impressive players of the NFL today. Having made a lot of momentous career gains in his 2018 debut, Bates has set a reputation for himself for securing over one hundred tackles, and three interceptions every season since entering the league. Not only that, but the young player continues to impress managers and scouters as a big part of the Bengals, and he has been named second team all pro in 2020. Bates is definitely one to watch in the coming years who is likely to be induced into the Hall of Fame if his career continues to progress the way it is going. 

Stephon Gilmore – New England Patriots 

Another impressive addition to the future Hall of Fame is Stephon Gilmore, who secured a Super Bowl victory with the New England Patriots. It seems only fitting that with 2 All-Pros and 4 Pro Bowl awards, that the defensive player of the year winner gets the next highlight in the Hall of Fame. Gilmore has an excellent record of 114 career pass deflections, and 25 interceptions in a single season. Among other players, Gilmore is definitely one to stand out for all of the right reasons. 

Joey Bosa – Los Angeles Chargers

Within the Los Angeles Chargers, Joey Bosa has the NFL in his blood. Both his father and brother have previously played in the league, and the linebacker was one of the highest earning rookies of 2016 after his initial draft was followed with a series of contract conflicts. Bosa was soon named NFL defensive rookie of the year during his debut, and continued to impress crowds with his abilities. 

Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs

At 25 years old, Patrick Mahomes is another impressive player who has achieved so much in a short span of time. Already owning a Super Bowl ring, three Pro Bowls, and offensive player of the year award, Mahomes is a particularly talented quarterback. He is one of the few players to throw 50 touchdown passes and cover 50,000 yards in a single season. Not only that, but he led the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years during the 2019-20 playoffs. He remains the second-youngest quarterback to do so. With a ten-year contract signed with the Chiefs, Mahomes will be a member of the Hall of Fame in the coming years for sure. 

Quenton Nelson – Indianapolis Colts

Rounding off the list is another 25-year-old who continues to impress crowds and challenge opponents. Nelson isn’t one to shy away from a fight, and is considered one of the NFL’s best guards. Within his first three years, Nelson saw Pro-Bowl and All-Pro already. His gains are especially impressive when considering his current injury streak, which needs to be successfully avoided in order to see a place in the Hall of Fame. 

These players wouldn’t be where they are today without the influence of the media, and of course the role that previous NFL players have had on their current success streaks. Management has equally played a role in getting the NFL to where it is today, and history has seen the effect that ineffective management has had on a team’s attitude, motivation, and overall quality of playing. This is why some of the gains of the current players and rookies are even more commendable, because predecessors have carefully shaped the game and league into what is now widely known as a multi-million dollar industry. 

Most of the players above are still notably young, and a lot of them were recruited during their college years playing football. The benefit of young players is that they are able to adapt fast and learn quickly. Agility and speed are definitely among some of their key strengths. This is why a lot of managers benefit from spotting players when they are young, as their brains are in their prime state to take on new information. Not only that, but drafting young players from college allows them to experience the real world and become more grounded from it. Another benefit from college players joining the NFL is that colleges often get rewarded with popularity and funding. 

In summary, there are a lot of impressive gains that have been made by the current Hall of Fame contenders, and it won’t be long before some of these names are seen inducted into it. Teams are often loyal and celebrate player’s impressive achievements, which is why a lot of these players above have already experienced their fair share of rewards at such young ages.
