Mike Evans, DaRon Bland voted as NFL’s most underrated players by fellow Pro Bowlers

Greg Auman

NFC South Reporter

“The defensive end who plays for Baltimore.” … Final answer.

While the top NFL players faced off last weekend in a variety of events for the Pro Bowl Games in Orlando, FOX Sports’ NFC South reporter Greg Auman put a bunch of them through his own challenge: the Pro Bowl Confidential, a quick and fun survey featuring anonymous answers from players on topics ranging from football to travel to pop culture.

The fourth edition of the survey featured answers from 35 players (the highest yet), who provided their answers to evergreen questions. So, who do the Pro Bowlers believe are the most underrated players in the league this year?

On the offensive side, wideouts seemed to be the common answer. But the defensive side was a little trickier, as even recalling certain players’ names seemed to be a bit difficult for some. “The best endorsement for a player voting for someone being most underrated is literally not knowing their name,” Auman reported.

Check out the results below, along with more of his thoughts!

Question: Who is the most underrated offensive player?

Answer: Tie, but receivers reign

Auman: As much as is written about “Pro Bowl snubs,” we like to ask players for the league’s most underrated players on offense and defense. We ask that they not vote for any of their teammates, and everyone’s definition of “underrated” is different, so you’ll see some of the most respected names in the sport, and even crossover between MVP votes and most underrated votes.

Only three guys on offense earned multiple votes — Bucs receiver Mike Evans and two fullbacks, the 49ers’ Kyle Juszczyk and the Dolphins’ Alec Ingold — with two each. We’ll just list the rest alphabetically, though there’s one missing. We record the answers in a chaotic blur and then go back and tally up the responses, and we’ve listened to one answer for the most underrated offensive player a million times and still can’t decipher…
