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 Jim Taylor
4 Anthony Barr Anthony Barr Anthony Barr is an American football outside linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.

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.

5 Roscoe Parrish
6 Ray Nitschke

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

7 Ryan Fitzpatrick Ryan Fitzpatrick

He is laarge and in chaaarge

8 Delanie Walker 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.

9 Kurt Warner 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

10 Don Hutson Don Hutson

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.

The Contenders

11 Brandon Marshall Brandon Marshall Brandon Tyrone Marshall is an American football wide receiver for the New York Jets of the National Football League. He has played for five different teams in his NFL career. Marshall was drafted in the fourth round one hundred and nineteenth overall to the Denver Broncos
12 Fred Jackson
13 Sterling Sharpe
14 Jason Verrett

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

15 Bernard Berrian
16 Darren Sproles 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 Visanthe Shiancoe
19 Malcolm Jenkins Malcolm Jenkins

Playing great even at this age with the Eagles.

20 Keith Bulluck
