The Pro Football Hall of Fame, Class of 2022

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022 was revealed Thursday night at NFL Honors, three days before Super Bowl LVI. Here's the list of hall of fame from Tony Boselli to Dick Vermeil.

Tony Boselli

The first draft pick in Jacksonville Jaguars history is now the first Hall of Fame player in franchise history. Boselli, a star tackle out of USC, was the second overall pick in the 1995 draft and a sure thing from the start. 

Leroy Butler

LeRoy's long wait to leap into the annals of Canton is over. Butler, who spent the duration of his 12-year career with the Green Bay Packers, is in the Hall of Fame in his 16th year of eligibility. A four-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro in Green Bay, Butler was a ball-hawking, hard-hitting safety for the Brett Favre-era Packers. He's the only player in league history with at least three picks and three sacks in three straight seasons, and one of just six with 30-plus interceptions and 20-plus sacks in his career.

Sam Mills

A pillar in New Orleans' Dome Patrol defense for nearly a decade, Mills took a circuitous route to Canton. Mills signed with the Browns as a UDFA out of Montclair State, joined the CFL's Argonauts after he was cut from Cleveland, and played for the USFL's Stars after he was released from Toronto before he even made it to an NFL roster in 1986. Mills remained a part of the organization until his death in 2005 following a battle with intestinal cancer. In his 20th year of eligibility, Mills is now enshrined posthumously in football’s ultimate resting place.

Richard Seymour

A fixture of this century's defining dynasty, Seymour won three Super Bowls as a member of the New England Patriots. As the sixth overall pick of the 2001 draft. Seymour was in Foxborough from nearly the very start of the Bill Belichick era. The seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro are now in Canton for all time in his fifth year of eligibility and his fourth time as a finalist.

Bryant Young

One of the greatest defensive players in the storied history of the 49ers, Young played the entirety of his 14-year career in San Francisco, starting all 208 of games played. A four-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro, Young enters Canton in his 10th year of eligibility and his second as a finalist.

Cliff Branch

Arguably the greatest receiver in Raiders history is now, finally, a Hall of Famer. Branch, who died in 2019, spent the length of his 14-year career with the Silver and Black. Finally, though, Branch, a Senior Committee finalist, has been rightfully recognized as one of the game's most significant figures.

Art Mcnally

Known as the "Father of Modern Officiating," McNally served as the NFL's supervisor of officials for 24 years from 1968 to 1991, leading the officiating department through a period in which football reached new heights of popularity. McNally's name will be forever included in the halls of the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the first on-field official ever enshrined in Canton.

Dick Vermeil

One of only seven coaches to lead two franchises to the Super Bowl, Vermeil enjoyed a long, storied career as a professional football coach. All in all, Vermeil, a Coach Committee finalist, coached three franchises to a combined 126-114 record (including postseason) with his long, strange career landing him a deserved spot in Canton.
