Kent Hull was named the Buffalo Bills' top Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate by NFL.com

Elliot Harrison made a great choice for the Bills.

Quite a few members of the Super Bowl Bills have been enshrined in Canton at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On offense, Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Andre Reed have been inducted and Bruce Smith represents the team's defense. In addition to these four players, former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy has been enshrined, as has former general manager Bill Polian. It's quite the group from that era of the Bills, but Elliot Harrison of NFL.com believes one more player from this time belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Harrison named one player, Senior Committee candidate, or contributor as the top candidate for each NFL team to be enshrined and the NFL.com writer chose Kent Hull for the Bills.

Buffalo Bills: Kent Hull, center

Center remains a vital position in pro football, although it's getting increasingly difficult for centers to get into the Hall of Fame. Sure, Mick Tingelhoff made it last year -- after waiting three decades. Even former Steeler Dermontti Dawson, who was dominant while taking over Hull's role as the NFL's premier center in the 1990s, was a finalist multiple times before getting enshrined in 2012. Hull helped run Buffalo's high-flying "K-Gun" offense, making three Pro Bowls while being named first-team All-Pro twice. If Andre Reed deserves the honor ...

As Harrison mentioned, Hull's role in running the K-Gun offense cannot be understated. He was vital to the team's success during their most successful period in the NFL as he called out the blocking fronts. Hull has never been named a semi-finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame but he can be named a Senior Nominee starting in 2021.
