beIN SPORTS' Lead College Football Analyst Donovan McNabb headlines a list of 94 players nominated for induction into the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame.

As the 2nd overall draft pick in the 1999 NFL Draft with the Philadelphia Eagles, McNabb became one of the most electrifying quarterbacks in the league.

He was the first NFL quarterback to ever throw for more than 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions in a season (2004).
McNabb led his team to Super Bowl XXXIX in 2004, 5 NFC Conference Championship games, including four consecutive (2001-2004). He holds franchise records for every major passing category in Philadelphia Eagles history including completions (2,801), passing yards (32,873) and touchdowns (216).
Donovan also played for the Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings before re-signing with Philadelphia and retiring with the team who drafted him.
Now a seasoned NFL analyst, Donovan began his broadcasting career when he joined the NFL Network as an analyst during the 2012 season. He joined the beIN SPORTS College Football team before this season.
