Who will introduce Emmitt Smith?

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- We know former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. will introduce wide receiver Jerry Rice in August when he's inducted into the Hall of Fame.

What about Emmitt Smith?

"I have a short list, but I'm not going to give the names out," Smith said. "I think it's a very special moment for the person that I pick. I wanted to treat it with the upmost respect and give it the attention that it deserves and so when that moment comes, that person will know."

The short list for Smith could be this:

1. Jerry Jones

2. Daryl 'Moose' Johnston

3. Pat Smith, Emmitt's wife.

4. Pastor T.D. Jakes

5. Michael Irvin
