The Big 12 will be shut out in this year's Pro Football Hall of Fame class. The group of 15 finalists have no representatives that attended Big 12 schools.
Two Big 12 players were dropped when the cut was made from 25 to 15 finalists by the NFL Hall of Fame selection committee. Those who were left out included former Nebraska running back Roger Craig and cornerback Lester Hayes, who attended Texas A&M.
Here's a look at Big 12 schools and their representatives in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Baylor: LB Mike Singletary
Iowa State: None
