    yea completely agree...chris chambers was the most underrated wr in the nfl before he made the pro bowl thats why i was so glad to see him finally make it...randy is a standout TE deff. top 5 in the league but antonio gates and tony gonzalez are in his way of making it to the top....marty booker is another solid wr who doesnt get enough credit, hes a very dangerous #2 wr....wes welker is the fan favorite who gives it his all on every play he hardly drops passes and you can always count on him.....last year i thought gus was underrated because he did help us turn around from our 4-12 season and i thanked him for that but we really need an upgrade in the qb position if we wanted to go to the next level so we did and we brought it DAUNTE!!!

    yeremiah bell by far and maybe booker...those two make plays when they get the chance. i hope saban allows more playing time for yeremiah and daunte to get the ball to booker more.

    Keith Traylor... 2 gap plugs rarely get love, but affect the most fundamental aspect of the game, running the ball up the middle.

    Yeremiah Bell. I watched NUBLAR's highlight film and this guy was making plays left and right. It surprised me.

    I'm sorry, but how can Vickerson be a candidate when he has yet to even play one down for us?

    :confused:

    BTW, I went with Bell as well.

    Yeh but even with the spectacular year Chambers had, he still dropped a plethora of passes. Imagine how much greater he can be. Marty booker is not underrated. He is what he is. Booker dissapears for extended periods of time in games. He'll make a big catch here and there and maybe have 2 brilliant games. Orande Gadsen was way better in Miami than Booker has turned out to be. Someone posted Channing Crowder which is ridiculous because Crowder has recieved proper notification for accomplishments as a rookie this year. Jeff Zgonina is a solid DL but he's getting old. Yeremiah Bell, whom my cousin played with in college at EKU (Eastern Kentucky Univ.), definitely gets the underrated award. The man was crackin skulls this year and is an excellent special teams player. He can afford to get better on coverage, not that he was horrible, and he will. This kid is gonna be a star.

    Yeah IMO its Derrick Pope I mean look a guy goes down and he steps up and does his job. He is a solid LB, But he gets no respect because he only plays once and awhile. He is solid all the time and when a guy goes down it hurts than I think Pope is coming in and while is not the greatest he does a good job!

    I agree with that. Pope does an excellent job when he fills in for Zach.

    I'll take:
    Marty Booker - #1 reciever at one point in his career with the bears
    Wes Welker - people call him too small and not fast enough, but he consistently makes a big catch in critical situations (15 yards/catch in 2005), + good punt returner

    I have to agree with that. Pope has been a lot more productive than peeps give him credit for. I know Seau was old but it can't be easy to fill a sure to be HOFer's shoes no matter how old he is.

    A lot of the people on you list really don't contribute a lot to the point where you can say they are underrated. The most underrated person use to be Chambers until the second half of last season. Currently I think it is Travis Daniels. I truly believe he is a star on the rise.

    I disagree. He is never mentioned in the same sentence as some of the other LBs drafted this year, and he had just as good a year as many of them. He is recognized in Miami but nowhere else. Same with Travis Daniels.

    Rex Hadnot, the guy came in as a sixth-round draft choice and ended up starting on the line before Carey did. In 2004 he didn't allow a single sack (at a time when we had a sack just about every drive) and can play both center and guard. He regressed a bit this season with a couple false starts but overall does a very solid job.

    Obviously, its Vickerson and Minor at 0%. Can you win and underrated poll and still be underrated?

    We can't vote for Vickerson because we have no idea what he can do.

    Yeremiah Bell. The guy is a huge playmaker. Just look at force fumble against San Diego and the 4th down stop against New York. He rarely gets burned and clearly deserves to be a starter. Wes Welker is a close second.

    on this board......none are underrated, most are overrated. But by nfl fans in general, probably Y.Bell....as most non-dolphin fans have never heard of him.

    mine is zach thomas, he is loved by everyone in miami and everyone who watches the fins or nos n e hting bout football nos hes one of the best in the league now

    but around the league, he is very underated, all u hear about is ooo ray lewis, oooo urlacher, ooooo totupo or w.e his name is

    thomas gets no love

    but underated as a fin i say its pope

    he is a good player and may fit into a starting roll, he filled in very nice for the times thomas was injured

    yeah i totally agree with that. two big key plays he made this season to stop the offense from gaining any momentum for a comeback....I.E. Chargers game (when he sacked Brees) Jets game (when he pass defended Doug Jolley's reception) a player of that type of caliber should def be recognized more often :)

    Wes Welker duke is an ace on special teams and has emerged as a decent 3rd option at wr
