I define a HOF player as someone who, were you to go back to his draft and remove any other HOF candidates, would be drafted #1 overall.
There was never a period in his career where he was even arguably the best player at his position. Even if he were, he would have to sustain that level for an extended period of time to be HOF worthy.
In the last 10 yrs, the only RBs that I would consider are:
Adrian Peterson (assuming this trajectory)
Curtis Martin (HOF 2012)
Of that list I would choose AP, LT, TD, Shaun, Curtis, JB, and maybe
Ricky Watters and EJ.
