Hall of Fame battle coming?

Insiders told CSNChicago.com that Saturdays debate among the Hall of Fame electors was likely to be one of the most interesting and possibly most heated in some time. Besides the annual difficulty of deciding who among a cluster of greats was more great, this year has two contributors on the ballot and thats never easy.

One is former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, who transformed the 49ers into perennial Super Bowl contenders. And the other is Bill Parcells, who had 14 winning seasons in 19 years as a head coach and won two Super Bowls coaching the New York Giants.

Both coaches in this Super Bowl were Parcells' assistants, Tom Coughlin handling receivers and Bill Belichick handling multiple duties on defense.

Absolutely Parcells should be selected, said Belichick, who was Parcells defensive coordinator after coaching special teams and linebackers. Bill has done a tremendous job in his time in the National Football League, really taking five organizations from not a very high point to a very high point.

Bill is a tremendous coach, a great influence in my career and on me personally. I think hes had tremendous accomplishments in the game, not only his record but also his development of players and coaches and just the impact to the National Football League. I cant imagine him being left out of the group.

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.

Larry Ogunjobi, DL, Charlotte

6'3" | 305 lbs.

2016 stats:

65 tackles, 13.5 TFL, 3 sacks

Projection:

Second round

Scouting Report:

"Watching Ogunjobi play is like watching a more raw version of Sheldon Rankins and with a little less efficiency of movement. Like Rankins, Ogunjabi uses leverage, quickness, and strong hands to counter his average size. Size and below-average length will work against him for some teams, but others who covet disruptive defensive tackles who can play in the backfield and generate some pressure will be studying him closely. Has starting NFL potential." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Chad Hansen, WR, California

6'2" | 202 lbs.

92 receptions, 1,248 yards, 11 TD

Projection:

Third round

Scouting Report:

"Hansen has good combination of size and speed for the perimeter with an ability to climb over the top of cornerbacks and win the deep ball. He has average separation quickness when asked to work the first two levels, but he has the hands and strength to handle contested catch situations. An ascending prospect in draft circles who should hear his name called on Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) of the daft with a chance to become a WR2." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
