Faneca was dominant, 6 time all-pro (not Pro Bowl, we know the fallacies in that process).   He & Boselli IMO are just as much no-brainers as Peyton, Charles Woodson & Megatron.    

Guys like Lynch & Wayne will rightfully get in soon, but I'd go with that elite 5 above.

Nothing super surprising here. I guess a little surprised Patrick Willis didn't make the final ballot, but he wasn't super viable first ballot anyways

 

Peyton and Woodson are no-brainer first ballot unanimous

All 3 of these receivers deservedly will get in eventually - I don't really care the order, but I would say choose Megatron, Holt, Wayne personally

Faneca is very deserving

I'd probably lean either John Lynch, LeRoy Butler, Zach Thomas, Richard Seymour for my final spot

Peyton, Faneca, Zach Thomas, Woodson, Megatron, ..... Torry Holt.

The first 5 were pretty easy for me.

This is his second ballot, and he hasn't been a finalist in either, which is beyond ridiculous.
