Wednesday Round-Up: Ranks The 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Semifinalists

Former Seahawks offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson is one of 27 modern-era semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Where does he rank amongst his peers?

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, November 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Hutchinson For Class Of 2018?

Former Seahawks offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson is one of 27 modern-era semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018, and at, former NFL personnel evaluator Gil Brandt ranks all of the semifinalists, breaking down who he thinks should make it as a finalist, and in his opinion, who should be included in the Class of 2018.

Hutchinson not only cracks Brandt's top 5 picks for next year's Hall of Fame class, but comes in second only to Randy Moss, one of the game's all-time great receivers. Here's what Brandt had to say about the former Seahawk:

Hutchinson arrived at Michigan as a defensive tackle, and though he played on the other side of the line in the pros, he carried himself like a defensive tackle, with the toughness and strength that implies. Hutchinson started every game he played and reached the Pro Bowl seven times, with five first-team All-Pro nods.

Rounding out Brandt's five picks for the Class of 2018 outside of Moss and Hutchinson are receiver Terrell Owens, safety John Lynch, and offensive lineman Tony Boselli.
