Who is the most underrated player of the decade?

Bobby Wagner is so freaking good. I feel like he’s never really gotten his due. The dude is elite and when people think of Seattles defense from this era, he’ll be down on the list from what I’m gathering. 

I think Wagner definitely has gotten his due the last few years.

I would say Jurrell Casey.  He has been a top 5, if not top 3, interior players for a long time and yet gets nothing close to the attention of the other guys.  Even less than guys like Danielle Hunter who are excellent as well.

Linebacker Ben Leber for the Vikings. EXTREMELY underrated. I think PFF even had one of his games in 2008 as one of their best performances ever for a linebacker since 2006. 

 

Ben Leber also was the number 1 linebacker from 2008-2010 for pass rushing productivity.

My homer pick. Charles Peanut Tillman.  He was great but i dont think the rest of non Bear fans saw him as a top 10 corner at his peak.

 

Still no one was better at punching the ball out though.

 

 

i loved tillman he was awesome and very underrated

Marshal Yanda, Aqib Talib, Andrew Whitworth, DeSean Jackson, and Dont'a Hightower come to mind.

As a Packers fan, these are both excellent picks.  I hated both of them in the most respectful way.

Can I just nominate guards?

A RB runs through a wide open hole for about 7 yards before he is touched and then he does a little dance and the announcers kiss his butt...

No mention of the O-line who did all the work. The worst case of this was 'stand still and wait for a hole' LeVeon and the Steelers O-line.

 

Guys who do get recognition like Nelson or Yanda might get a mention a few times a game compared to 15 for the runner.

Did you even know that Yanda is a 7x pro bowl guard?  I didn't.

 

Honorable mention. Space eaters like Haloti Ngata or 3-4 down lineman who do the dirty work so the LBs can roam free to crush people and get on ESPN.

D'onta Hightower.

Incredibly dependable.  

Makes tackle on beastmode in the play before the Butler pick which saves the SB for the Pat's.  Then forces fumble on Matt Ryan which again leads the comeback vs The Falcons.

But wont be a HoF.

I always wonder how good Zims D could be here if he could find his Viking version of Geno. He has everything else.

Calais Campbell for me. Chances of playoff success wasted on the teams he has played for, other than his rookie season. Complete wrecking ball that has to be accounted for on every play.

Taysom Hill is underrated.  

He's the Leonardo Da Vinci of the NFL.  

Who wouldn't want to have a guy like that playing on their team?  

You can write so many plays around him.
