No, but there is precedence/distinction for 1st ballot HoF players. Guys like Cris Carter come to mind as great players and obvious HoF resume, but didn't get in 1st ballot.
A first ballot HoF player is guy that was an all-timer, perennial all-pro over his career, can't tell the history of the game without mentioning his name. Even some of them don't get in 1st ballot.
I missed all of Cris Carter's Super Bowl appearances. And here I thought I was a football fan.
