The ten players were selected by a voting process in which former players cast ballots for current players. Former professional football players voted for current players at the positions they once played themselves.

The NFL Alumni is a non-profit organization composed primarily of former NFL players who have joined to advocate for key issues affecting retired players such as medical, financial and career-transition needs while also supporting youth charities.
