The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced the 15 semifinalists for its Class of 2021.

The list – reduced from 130 nominees announced in September and then again from the list of 25 semifinalists released in December – reaches 18 when including the nominees from the Coach, Contributor and Senior Committees (Tom Flores, Bill Nunn and Drew Pearson, respectively); the class is ultimately determined and announced during Super Bowl Week in Tampa.

There is no set number of inductees for any class, but the Hall’s bylaws state that there will be anywhere from four to eight enshrines.

It’s an impressive list of players – no surprise there – that includes at least one slam-dunk first-timer and a couple of other incredibly impressive first-year picks, all of whom will have legitimate shots at induction on their first ballot.

Let’s look at those first-time eligible names, shall we?

Pro Football Hall of Fame names semifinalists

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced the 25 semifinalists for its Class of 2021.

The list – reduced from 130 nominees announced in September – will be further winnowed down to 15 finalists (note: this number will actually increase to 18 following the inclusion of the recommended nominees from the Coach, Contributor and Senior Committees) before the class is ultimately determined and announced during Super Bowl Week in Tampa.

There is no set number of inductees for any class, but the Hall’s bylaws state that there will be anywhere from four to eight enshrines.

It’s an impressive list of players – no surprise there – that includes at least one slam-dunk first-time nominee and a couple of other incredibly impressive first-year picks, all of whom will almost certainly make the list of finalists at the very least.

Let’s look at those first-time eligible names, shall we?
