Billy Wilson's omission in the Hall of Fame has been head-scratching for more than a few historians and participants of the game including legendary Niners head coach Bill Walsh, who referred to Wilson as, "the top pass receiver of his time and one of the finest blockers" at Wilson's death in 2009. Indeed, six Pro Bowl selections along with a mess of TDs and receiving yards should seem like enough to warrant induction.

However, as other spectacular receivers like Andre Reed or Art Monk have known all too well, no position is more clogged in the Hall of Fame than the wide out spot.
