Tony Boselli named one of 15 finalists for Pro Football Hall of Fame 2020

Could Tony Boselli could *actually* make it in this year?

Tony Boselli, the best offensive lineman in Jacksonville Jaguars history, has been named one of the 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2020.

Boselli was as dominate an offensive tackle as there ever was for the Jaguars. After becoming the team’s first draft selection in franchise history, Boselli went on to five consecutive Pro Bowl selections from 1996 to 2000 and was named to the 1990’s All-Decade Team. He was also a three-time All-Pro selection from 1997 to 1999.

The list of finalists is at 15, after being trimmed down from the 26 that were announced as semifinalists back in November.

Boselli is one of the best offensive lineman of the bunch, but the reason he keeps getting passed over is a relatively empty cupboard of accolades — he regularly has the fewest Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections along with zero Super Bowl titles to his name. But he’s been very popular in NFL circles in recent years and the voting sportswriters all love him.

What do you think? Will Boselli finally make it in this year? Or will he get passed over for players with longer careers? Let us know in the comments below!
