 By John Turney 
Tomorrow the Pro Football Hall of Fame will announce its 15 Finalists out of which five will be voted into the Hall in January and announced Super Bowl Week and they will compose the modern candidates for the Class of 2020.
The 15 will come from this list of 26—
Cornerback Eric Allen
Defensive end Jared Allen
Offensive tackle Willie Anderson
Cornerback/safety Ronde Barber
Wide receiver Anquan Boldin
Offensive tackle Tony Boselli
Safety LeRoy Butler
Running back Eddie George
Wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester
Wide receiver Torry Holt
Wide receiver Andre Johnson
Defensive end Robert Mathis
Linebacker Sam Mills
Defensive tackle Richard Seymour
Wide receiver Steve Smith
Wide receiver/special teams Steve Tasker
Running back Fred Taylor
Linebacker Zach Thomas
Wide receiver Hines Ward
Linebacker DeMarcus Ware
Running back Ricky Watters
Wide receiver Reggie Wayne
Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork
Linebacker Patrick Willis
Safety Darren Woodson
Defensive tackle Bryant Young

Here are our guesses as to the list, assuming there are no tied that will take the list
to 16 of 17, which is possible—
 1.  Richard Seymour
 2.  LeRoy Butler
 3.  Zach Thomas
 4.  Tony Boselli
 5.  DeMarcus Ware
 6.  Reggie Wayne
 7.  Torry Holt
 8.  Bryant Young
 9.  Patrick Willis
10. Sam Mills
11. Ronde Barber
12. Jared Allen
13. Willie Anderson
14. Hines Ward
15. Devin Hester

In less than 24 hours we'll let you know how well we did.

In addition to the Finalists Dick Vermeil, Cliff Branch, and Art McNally will be voted on in mid-January as well.
