Though Harrison's statistics may be inflated due to the fact that he spent his entire career with first-ballot Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, the wideout's numbers are too great to ignore.
His 14,580 receiving yards rank him seventh on the all-time list, and his 1,102 receptions are the third most in history behind Tony Gonzalez and Jerry Rice.
Harrison's receiving touchdown total should significantly help his candidacy—his 128 scores are 17 more than Gonzalez and only rank behind Cris Carter, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Jerry Rice.
He snagged more than 100 passes four times—during consecutive seasons from 1999 to 2002, when he reeled in a whopping 469 catches combined.
There's a bit of a logjam at the wide receiver position, but Harrison should sneak into the Hall of Fame this year. He'll just beat out Tim Brown and Andre Reed, guys who are likely 2015 class members.
