Who do you think will be a HOFer when they retire? Just curious.
QB: Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers
RB: Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Steven Jackson
WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Reggie Wayne, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Wes Welker, Randy Moss
TE: Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten
CB: Charles Woodson, Champ Bailey, Ronde Barber, Darrelle Revis
LB: Brian Urlacher, Ray Lewis
S: Ed Reed, Troy Polamalu

I'm sure I missed a ton but these names come to mind
To add to jmessick's list: Lance Briggs, Jared Allen, Julius peppers, demarcus ware, Joe thomas.

I think its way to earlier to give a nod to ray rice
I almost put LeSean McCoy on there, but him and Rice both have great shots at it if they have long enough careers
Earl Bennett! Jk :-P

Lets see, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson if he can stay healthy, Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss, possibly Rob Gronkowski if he has a long career, and more than likely a lot of other guys.

So hard for WRs to get into the HOF, so a probable no to Welker, Andre, and Larry. Moss' numbers are fantastic, but a lack of rings (for some strange reason) will make it hard for him to get in. Look at Reed, Brown, Carter, and Owens, who all should be in or on their way and have been stonewalled.

I actually think it's much easier for a Defensive player to get in. I like your list for those, and also add Jared Allen if he continues the way he's playing.

I also don't see Rice, but AP and SJax if they stay healthy, Arian Foster too. It really is too bad that a Super Bowl vacancy weighs so heavily (or in Jerry Kramer's case, a 5 World Champion surplus).
IMO, these are the only locks that are currently playing:

Charles Woodson
DeMarcus Ware
Jason Witten
Tony Gonzalez
Ray Lewis
Brian Urlacher
Tom Brady
Peyton Manning
Ed Reed

there are some players who would be close (Ronde Barber, Eli), but I just don't see them getting in unless they do a LOT more.
How about Patrick Willis? Too soon to tell?
Ok this may sound crazy, but....Kevin Faulk?
Ooooh, DeMarcus Ware, that's a pretty solid one. and let's be honest, that Ray Guy article a few days ago needs to shed some serious light on Kickers. Jason Hanson should be right behind Guy.
