In the history of the NFL, we have seen some incredible quarterbacks, and for the top-20 currently playing, we break down their Hall of Fame chances.

The NFL is certainly a quarterback league, and when you look around at the 32 teams, there are some guys who are headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. There are those guys who should be locks, as their resumes already are Hall of Fame worthy, but how close are some of the other signal-callers close to being enshrined in Canton one day.

Here are the Pro Football Hall of Fame chances for the top-20 quarterbacks in the NFL right now.

*Disclaimer: We have left out second-year guys like Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold until they get a bit deeper into their NFL careers.

Tom Brady

  • New England Patriots (2000-present)

The story of Tom Brady is one of the best in NFL history, as he went from the No. 199 overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft to being arguably the best quarterback to ever play the game. A six-time Super Bowl champion, Brady has led the New England Patriots on an incredible run over the last nearly 20 years, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

In fact, entering his age-42 NFL season, Brady is actually fresh off another Super Bowl title. The Patriots are once again a favorite to win their division, and possibly the AFC.

He has been nothing short of magnificent for so long. Even after being hurt and missing nearly all the 2008 NFL season, he came back in 2009 and won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award.

Brady is a special player, and his place in the history of the NFL is set in stone. He has been named to 14 Pro Bowls, has led the NFL in passing yards three times and is a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player. As long as he is under center, the Patriots will be a team to beat, and that has been bad news for the rest of the AFC since he came into the league.

Hall of Fame chances: 100 percent, first-ballot lock
