Check out SB Nation's full coverage of the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame voting

Richard Dent, Marshall Faulk, Chris Hanburger, Les Richter, Ed Sabol, Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe are your 2011 NFL Hall of Famers. Willie Roaf, who didn't make it into the final round of voting, was not named a member of the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Hanburger and Richter were the two Senior Hall of Fame candidates. 

Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Cris Carter, Charles Haley and Chris Doleman did not make it past the first round of balloting. 

Willie Roaf spent his first nine NFL seasons with the New Orleans Saints. He was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2002 for a third round draft pick. Roaf played four seasons with the Chiefs, making the Pro Bowl every season as a left tackle. For the Chiefs, he was a first team All-Pro selection in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and a second team selection in 2002. He was an All-Pro selection three times as a Saint as well. 

Roaf was also a member of the 1990s All Decade Team and the 2000s All Decade Team. The Chiefs led the AFC in total yardage three times during Roaf's four-year career as a Chief. 

Willie Roaf has a great chance to be on the list of NFL Hall of Famers. Just not this year. You can view the full list of all-time NFL Hall Of Famers here
