The Pro Football Hall of Fame will induct four players—running back Earl Campbell, guard John Hannah, defensive lineman Stan Jones and kicker Jan Stenerud—and one club executive, former Dallas Cowboy president Tex Schramm, in ceremonies this weekend in Canton, Ohio. Here is a list of 10 others who SI's Dr. Z, Paul Zimmerman, believes should also be in the Hall:
? Al Davis, 1963-present, Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders. Coach, scout, commissioner, owner...he's done it all. Bad marks in conduct have kept him out, but it's a joke that he hasn't made it.
? Cliff Harris, Defensive back, 1970-79, Dallas Cowboys. Among free safeties there are killer types and rover types, and Harris was the best killer type I ever saw.
?Richie Jackson, Defensive end, 1966-72, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns. My two favorite defensive ends are Deacon Jones and "Tombstone" Jackson. Unfortunately, the latter's career was cut short by a knee injury.
? Jimmy Johnson, Defensive back, 1961-76, San Francisco 49ers. The two greatest corners ever are Johnson and Night Train Lane (inducted in 1974). Case closed.
? Alex Karras, Defensive tackle, 1958-70, Detroit Lions. He's so identifiable as an actor that people forget how great a player he was, and for how long.
? John Mackey, Tight end, 1963-72, Baltimore Colts and San Diego Chargers. Politics (he fought the NFL's antitrust exemption) was his undoing. His numbers aren't that impressive, but he provided great leadership.
?Dick Plasman, End, 1937-47, Chicago Bears and Chicago Cardinals. Films of the '30s and '40s reveal him to have been an offensive and defensive terror. Plasman, by the way, was the last man to play without a helmet.
? Mel Renfro, Defensive back, 1964-77, Dallas Cowboys. What, another Dallas safety? You bet, and you could make a case for Charlie Waters, too.
? John Riggins, Fullback, 1971-85, New York Jets and Washington Redskins. The "Big Diesel" was putting thousand-yard seasons together well into his 30's.
