The Hall of Fame will select the class of 2009 this weekend, and I'd like to know who you folks think will get in. Not necessarily who you think *should* get in, but who you think the board of selectors will actually choose. I'll compile the predictions and post them here after the announcements are made. I'll give a copy of my book (or some other suitable prize) to someone who predicts the results exactly. One entry per person, and I'll post my own predictions later. (They'll be on my blog today, if you're curious).

Here's the full list of nominees. You have to select between 4 and 7 nominees, and no more than five can be from the modern era list.

SENIOR NOMINEES
Bob Hayes & Claude Humphrey

MODERN ERA
Cris Carter, Dermontti Dawson, Richard Dent, Russ Grimm, Cortez Kennedy, Bob Kuechenberg, Randall McDaniel, John Randle, Andre Reed, Shannon Sharpe, Bruce Smith, Paul Tagliabue, Derrick Thomas, Ralph Wilson, Rod Woodson


More details on the nominees available from the Hall of Fame website.

Good luck. Post here or email me your predictions by 8:00 am on Saturday 1/24.

Cris Carter, Rod Woodson, Bruce Smith, Claude Humphrey and Ralph Wilson

Edit: I should ask if a senior candidate has to be elected. If so, I would add Claude Humphrey. Having said that; if Ralph Wilson isn't a senior candidate, I don't know who is. <g>

Edit #2: I'll add Humphrey anyway.

My guess: Bob Hayes, Claude Humphrey, Randall McDaniel, Rod Woodson, Bruce Smith, Ralph Wilson, Cris Carter.

But outside of Humphrey, Smith, and Woodson, it could be anybody.

Nope, they can pass on one or both of the nominees (as they did with Marshall Goldberg last year). The selectors are required to select between four and seven candidates, with no more than five players selected from the "modern era" list.

I pretty much agree, though I think Carter's probably close to a lock. I'm surprised that so far two people think Smith won't make it. I'd be very surprised if he doesn't.

I'll go with Carter, Dawson, Hayes, Humphrey, McDaniel, Smith and Woodson.
