gazoo Posted January 24, 2016 Share Posted January 24, 2016 Everyone note the question mark in the thread title. Julio Jones has not done enough to be in the Hall of Fame at this point and we all know this. The question is, after seeing Julio Jomes play 5 seasons, have you seen enough from him to feel he has a ***reasonable chance*** if he continues playing this way another 5-7 years to be a Hall of Fame inductee? Let's take a look at some facts. I looked up the top 20 WR's of all time in the HOF. Rod Smith was #15 797 catches/ 10,877 yards/ 65 TDs / 11 seasonsMichael Irvin was #18750 catches / 11,904 yards / 65 TDs / 12 seasonsKeyshawn Johnson was #20744 catches / 9,756 yards / 60 TDs / 10 seasonsJulio Jones 414 catches / 6201 yards / 34 TDs / 5 seasonsCareer Projections for Julio (based on first 5 seasons)818 catches / 12,402 yards / 68 TDs / 10 seasons993 catches / 14,882 yards / 81 TDs / 12 seasonsIf Julio just keeps playing like he has been for 5 more seasons he will already eclipse the top 20 WRs of all time currently in the HOF. If he plays another 7 seasons like many wide receivers do, he'll be up near the top 10 WRs of all time innthe HOF.So I ask, is it too soon to think there is a reasonable chance Julio Jones could be a Hall of Fame player for the Falcons?
