As the Jaguars head into their first season in the new millenium, three players on the team were selected today as second-team members of the 1990s NFL All-Decade Team as selected by the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee.
Tony Boselli, the first draft choice in Jaguars history, was named to the second team at offensive tackle. The other two players are safety Carnell Lake, who played for the Jaguars in 1999 following 10 stellar years in Pittsburgh, and middle linebacker Hardy Nickerson, who joined the Jaguars this year following 13 seasons with Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay.
Boselli, who has been named to four Pro Bowl squads in his five seasons with the Jaguars, joined Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis as the only members of either the first or second team who played only half of the decade. The first-team offensive tackles were New Orleans' William Roaf (six consecutive Pro Bowls) and former Viking and Bronco Gary Zimmerman (four Pro Bowls).
Lake made the second team at safety behind Steve Atwater and LeRoy Butler, while Nickerson was second team behind Junior Seau, Derrick Thomas and Kevin Greene.
