Hull's Hall of Fame chances - BuffaloBills.com
"There’s not a lot of debate on guys until they get to the final 25," said Pro Football Writers of America President and Hall of Fame selector Mark Gaughan. "Kent without a doubt was a Hall of Fame caliber player. It’s going to be tough though because he was on a team with a lot of Hall of Fame caliber players. If he was on a team that didn’t have so many big stars he’d have a much better chance."
