Then today, they announced the selections for the 15 finalists, who would go on, dropping ten names.

All three failed to move into the finalist field, while guys like Don Coryall, who didn't EVEN QUALIFY for the second round in fan voting, was selected for the finals. Some guys, who never played in a Super Bowl made it to the finals, like Cortez Kennedy or even won, like Andre Reed.
