With the 2018 Hall of Fame class being inducted on Saturday, let us take a look at five Raiders who should already be donning a Gold Jacket.

The 2018 Hall of Fame class does have a splash of the Raiders franchise in it, as Randy Moss will be enshrined on the first ballot. Moss played for the Raiders during the 2005 and 2006 seasons, racking up over 1,000 yard in 2005, but then going to New England and being much more productive.

While Moss was a Hall of Fame player, he certainly did not show that during his time with the Raiders. In fact, people could even go as far as forgetting he was a Raider, but not the fans of the team, who saw him as a quitter during his time in the Silver and Black.

Today, Moss and the rest of the 2018 Hall of Fame class will be enshrined in Canton, and while it is an incredible class, you have to believe there are still Raiders from the past who continue to get snubbed. In fact, one Raider is considered by many as the biggest Hall of Fame snub of all-time.

The history of the Raiders is littered with some of the best players in football history, and it is pretty disappointing that some of these guys have yet to be immortalized. We dive into five Raiders who should have already gotten a Gold Jacket, and for Raider Nation, we are still waiting to see them get up on the podium, though some will have to be enshrined posthumously.

Here are the five Raiders who we feel should already be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
