Top 5 Over/Underrated players in the NFL...IMO

Here is my list of some of the most over and underrated players in the NFL today. I know I missed some people but I cant put everyone on their so i narrowed it down to 5.

 

Overrated

1. Roy E. Williams

   Giving up a 1st and 3rd round pick for this guy was a BIG mistake.

2. Le'Ron McClain

   Two Words: Lousaka Polite

3. Jason Peters

   I don't know what kind of elite left tackle gives up 6 sacks and is still voted to the Pro Bowl as a starter?

4. Bryant McKinnie

   He gave up 9 sacks yet hes a Pro Bowl starter?

5. OJ Atogwe

   Yea i said it! OJ Atogwe is a really good football player, but he is not the top 5 safety some people are making him out to be, and he damn sure isn't worth top 5 money.

Arguably one of the best tandems in the league, yet you never hear about them.

All he does is produce year after year, with 1,000+ seasons.

Despite the carousel at quarterback during his tenure, that hasn't stopped Cotchery from putting up some very nice numbers.

It took Fletcher 12 years to become a Pro Bowl starter and that was only because the original starter Jonathan Vilma was a Super Bowl participant smh.

 

 

5. Lousaka Polite

Polite was the third fullback to start for the Dolphins in 2008, and he never looked back. He blocks well for the run and pass, and has converted 15 of 15 third or fourth-and-1 carries, plus one third-and-1 catch.

But i don't think you can put a stat on the countless heads Lousaka has cracked.
