Hall of Famer Fred Dean died at 68 this week, from complications caused by COVID-19. Dean was a standout pass rusher with the Chargers in the ‘70s and helped lift the 49ers to their first two Super Bowl titles. Dean played his college football at Louisiana Tech. What other two alums from that school have gone on to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Both were former top-10 picks (one chosen in 1970, and the other in 1993).
Terry Bradshaw and Willie Roaf. Bradshaw was the first pick of the draft after the merger. Roaf was a standout tackle for the Saints for nine years before spending his final four seasons with Kansas City.
