He was as dominant a left tackle as there ever was for the Jaguars.
He was as dominant a left tackle as there was in his generation.
But Tony Boselli is still waiting for the call.
The Jaguars' first-ever draft pick was set to become the franchise's first Pro Football Hall of Famer. But for the third consecutive year, Boselli came up just short of the final, five inductees.
Boselli was voted to five consecutive Pro Bowls from 1996 to 2000 and was a three-time All-Pro selection from 1997 to 1999. He was also named to the NFL’s 1990s All-Decade Team. Boselli’s Jaguars played in two AFC Championship games during his tenure with the team.
But the 1995 No. 2 overall Draft selection’s career was limited to 91 games due to shoulder injuries. Thus, of the offensive line finalists, he owned the fewest Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections – and no Super Bowl rings.
This was Boselli's 13th year of eligibility. He will be eligible again in 2020.
The 2019 NFL Hall of Fame class will be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, during NFL Hall of Fame Week August 1-4, 2019.
