Most Underrated NFL Players

The Top Ten

1 Fran Tarkenton

What a legend. The best Vikings QB ever.

One of the greatest dual threat QB's of all time, behind only Roger Staubach.

2 Terron Armstead
3 Anthony Barr Anthony Barr is an American football outside linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.

What do you mean their defense is underrated - lionsforlife

That Vikings defense is underrated. Linebackers Anthony Barr, Chad Greenway, and Eric Hendricks are beasts. In the secondary, ageless wonder Terrance Newman is playing like he's 34.(he's 38). Xavier Rhodes is shutting down Odell and Antone Exum and Trae Waynes are great back-ups. Oh and Harrison Smith is a pro bowl level Safety who is very underrated. The defensive line includes: Sharrif Floyd, Linval Joseph, and Everson Griffen. Top 3 defensive in the league right there.

4 Ray Nitschke

He was on and off the field like a bulldog - xXkillermachineXx

He was great but Dave Robinson was a better linebacker with the Lombardi Packers.

5 Jim Taylor
6 Roscoe Parrish
7 Kurt Warner Kurtis Eugene "Kurt" Warner is a former American football quarterback, a current part-time TV football analyst, and a philanthropist.

Good? Yes. Underrated? No. Aaron Rodgers and Kurt Warners stats are nearly identical right down to MVP, and SB trophies. And Aaron did it in 3 less seasons as a starter.

Kurt Warner is the best quarter back that ever lived

8 Don Hutson

He defined wide receiver. He is a top three in history. He is arguably the greatest Packer ever.

First major WR in the NFL - xXkillermachineXx

The greatest player of all time, and still never ends up on many people's top 10 receiver lists. How much more underrated can a player get?

He pretty much invented the WR, by creating pretty much every route used in the NFL today. He had more receiving yards than the other 9 teams in the NFL at that time had total PASSING yards. It also doesn't hurt that he averaged a TD every 5 catches.

9 Ryan Fitzpatrick Ryan Joseph Fitzpatrick, is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. He has played for 7 different teams throughout his career.

He is laarge and in chaaarge

10 Delanie Walker Delanie Walker is an American football tight end for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League.

One of the best TE in the NFL. Remember him with the 49ers and is know proving himself with Tennesee.

The Contenders

11 Sterling Sharpe
12 Brandon Marshall Brandon Tyrone Marshall is an American football wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League. He has played for six different teams in his NFL career. Marshall was drafted in the fourth round, 119th overall to the Denver Broncos in 2006.
13 Fred Jackson
14 Jason Verrett

He is really coming along with Brandon Flowers and Casey Hayward.

15 Bernard Berrian
16 Darren Sproles Darren Lee Sproles is an American football running back for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.

More all purpose yards than Barry Sanders, but mostly because of kick returns and passing catching though.

17 Maurice Jones-Drew

Honestly I think MJD was a better RB than Fred Taylor.

18 Malcolm Jenkins Malcolm Jenkins is an American football safety for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.

Playing great even at this age with the Eagles.

19 Visanthe Shiancoe
20 Keith Bulluck
21 Devonta Freeman Devonta Freeman is an American football running back for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.
22 Ronnie Brown
23 Derrick Mason

Derrick Mason is very underrated. He deserves Hall of Fame. He is better than Joey Galloway, Keyshawn Johnson, Chad Johnson, and Braylon Edwards. Great Player.

24 Elroy Crazy Legs Hirsch
25 Michael Bennett Michael Bennett, Jr. is an American football defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.
