NFL HBCU Class of 2022

Twenty-four players will make an appearance in the National Football League. When the final cuts are made in the fall, we will get a better idea about whose stock will rise – or fall. A word of encouragement: in the past, we have seen some All-Pros and Hall of Fame enshrinees come from these ranks.
