1. Darrelle Revis, CB, NY Jets
The Pro Football Hall of Fame just wouldn’t be the same without one of the greatest cornerbacks in NFL history.
Darrelle Revis seems like a lock for the Hall of Fame once he’s eligible as part of the 2023 class. A first-round pick of the Jets in the 2007 NFL Draft, Revis quickly emerged as one of the best cornerbacks in football.
He was named to seven Pro Bowls during the course of his 11-year career, earned four first-team All-Pro honors, and put together arguably the single greatest season from a cornerback in 2009.

At his peak, there was arguably never a more dominant cornerback than Darrelle Revis. And while that peak didn’t last as long as the likes of Richard Sherman and others, he’s still a lock for the Hall of Fame.
Revis was named to the 2010s All-Decade Team and the legacy of “Revis Island” continues to live on long past his retirement. We may never see a cornerback as dominant as Revis was at his peak ever again.
His rocky relationship with the team will leave a bad taste in the mouths of some fans, but it’s impossible to dispute that Revis is worthy of a Hall of Fame induction.
As one of the greats not only of his era but of all time, Revis will soon be enshrined in Canton. You could count on that.
