8. Ronde Barber
The leader of the Tampa Bay secondary for over a decade, Ronde Barber had one of the most statistically impressive careers for a Cornerback in the history of Football. Barber is one of only two men to net more than 40 Interceptions and 20 Sacks and was the leader in Picks in 2001. He also holds the record for the most Sacks by a Cornerback.

Barber, who was also chosen for the 2000’s All-Decade Team, was a key figure in Tampa Bay’s dominant Super Bowl win over the Oakland Raiders in 2003 and holds the record for consecutive starts by a Defensive Back.  We would not be surprised if he were to enter the Hall of Fame alongside his former teammates, Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, and John Lynch. 

Should Ronde Barber be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely, put him in! - 84.4%
