The list of modern-era candidates for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been narrowed down to 15 finalists. The Selection Committee meets today to consider and vote for the players who will be inducted in August 2013.

No more than five modern-era players will be selected from the group of 15 to be inducted along with either none, one or both senior candidates, Defensive End Claude Humphrey and Punter Ray Guy.

Who are the ones who deserve to be in the spotlight Saturday night and who will be saying "wait 'till next year?" Here's the early line.
