During his playing career, Willie Roaf was often regarded as one of the greatest left tackles to ever play in the NFL. On Saturday, he will be honored as such when he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Roaf played 13 seasons in the NFL, including nine with the New Orleans Saints. During his career, he was selected to 11 Pro Bowls and named first-team All-Pro six times. He was a member of both the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team and the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.
He was selected to the Hall of Fame in his second year on the ballot. During his first year on the ballot in 2011, Roaf was named as one of the finalists.
Roaf was originally selected by the Saints as the No. 8 overall pick in the 1993 NFL draft. He started all 16 games his rookie year and went on to start 131 games for New Orleans. He played his final four seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs before retiring after the 2005 season.
