Mawae is not a 1st ballot cinch, in fact I'd be shocked if he did as interior linemen rarely get selected on the first go. Randall McDaniel didn't and Dermontti Dawson (with 6 1st team All-Pros to Mawae's 3) is still waiting. The backlog is getting very long too when you consider the likes of Dent, Dawson, Carter, Brown, Reed, Cortez, Sharpe. Haley, Doleman and Greene are on the waiting list.
The next 4 years also sees the following become eligible for the 1st time.
Will Shields (12 Pro Bowls)
Mawae will be 1st time eligible in 2015 alongside Kurt Warner, Junior Seau, Isaac Bruce, Walter Jones, Edgerrin James and Orlando Pace.... Torry Holt too if he never plays again. Only a max of 5 modern era get selected each year. Once Dawson, Allen and Shields are elected Mawae will be the next 'interior lineman' on the waiting list but faces very stiff competition overall for places.
Is it possible to be voted to Canton as a LS? Yes. Its also possible that Giselle is going to dump Tom and move in with me instead. It will never happen. Look at the names above and tell me where Ethan Albright fits in?
