18. Isaac Bruce
Like ranking Torry Holt, we found the slotting of Isaac Bruce to be difficult. One of the main weapons on the Rams “Greatest Show on Turf”, Issac Bruce would collect 15,028 Receiving Yards which as of this writing is fourth all time. That is a very impressive number, but what puts him lower on our list is that he was never really considered the best player in his position, was never a First Team All Pro and was only in the top ten in Receiving Yards four times. That may all be true, but unlike Baseball, Football players are not viewed as stat compilers and he does have career numbers that are Canton worthy. If he got in on his first year of eligibility we wouldn’t be surprised. We would say the same if it took him ten tries.


Should Isaac Bruce be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in. - 90.1%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 7.4%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 1.2%
No opinion. - 0%
No way! - 1.2%

I don't think I ever saw a receiver as fast as Bruce.
