Although there is no set number of Enshrinees for any Hall of Fame Class, the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s current ground rules do stipulate that between four and seven new members will be selected each year. No more than five modern-era nominees can be elected in a given year and a class of six or seven Enshrinees can only be achieved if one or both senior nominees are elected.

Haley and Parcells face a tough group to make it to the final five. Prolific receivers Tim Brown, Cris Carter, and Andre Reed also made the list, as well as former commissioner Paul Tagliabue, running back Jerome Bettis, and safety Steve Atwater made the list.
