Which Hall of Fame Class of Enshrinees is the greatest ever? That is a tough question to answer. Over the years, many media outlets have attempted to rank the Classes of Enshrinees inducted into the Hall of Fame. When scrolling though the Hall of Fame’s roster, it is clearly evident that the task is easier said than done. But when it comes to ranking the yearly groups by Pro Bowl nods, the Class of 2014 is head and shoulders above the rest.

The Class of 2014 – Derrick Brooks (right), Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams – have logged more air miles to Hawaii than any other class with a combined total of 55 Pro Bowl berths, eight more than second ranked Class of 1990 (47). Leading the way for the newest Class is Derrick Brooks who earned 11 trips to Honolulu, followed by Walter Jones (9) and Aeneas Williams (8).
