The 13 Most Overrated Players in the NFL Today

13) Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati Bengals

After a great start to his career, Hill hasn’t even been able to average 4 yards a carry for the Bengals the past two seasons. Throw in a fumble that cost the Bengals a playoff win and you start to wonder why Hill is still on the team. The signing of Joe Mixon leads me to believe that the Bengals may be getting ready to part ways with Hill.

12) Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills

Watkins is a very talented wide receiver, but he seems to get hurt all the time. He is in the final year of his contract and it may be now or never for the talented receiver.

11) Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins

A lot of people overrate Cousins and I do think he is a good QB, he is just not as good as he thinks. Will he resign with the Redskins? Probably not, so this year will be more about shopping his abilities to other teams for the future.

10) Pierre Garcon, San Francisco 49ers

Garcon is a very good receiver, but he is not worth the money he is being paid. He is paid like a number one receiver and he’s not a number one receiver.

9) Mike Iupati, Arizona Cardinals

Iupati is a great run blocker, but he is a below average pass blocker. He is talked about as one of the top guards in the game, but he isn’t a complete player.

8) Dontari Poe, Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have signed Poe to a one year deal and he seems to be in better shape, so maybe he can turn it around this year. The last two years have not been good ones for Poe.

7) Vontae Davis, Indianapolis Colts

Davis was once one of the best corners in the NFL. That is not the case anymore as last year he had problems against the pass.

6) Tamba Hall, Kansas City Chiefs

Hall was once a great player, sadly those days have passed. Age has caught up with Hall and he is more of a situational player nowadays.

5) Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions

Ebron is a below-average blocker and not productive in the passing game. 61 receptions isn’t a bad number, but with only one touchdown, more is needed out of Ebron.

4) Muhammad Wilkerson, New York Jets

Wilkerson has never played up to his ability in the NFL. He has a tendency to take plays off. The sad part is when he wants to play he is a dominant lineman. The problem is those games are few and far between.

3) Russell Okung, Los Angeles Chargers

Okung was bad in pass protection last year and signing in the off-season with the Chargers means the Chargers are pinning a lot of hopes on him. That looks to be a bad idea after last year.

2) Coby Fleener, New Orleans Saints

Fleener makes over 7 million dollars a year and he had 50 catches last year. When your QB is Drew Brees, it should be more like 75 receptions.

1) Clay Matthews, Green Bay Packers

At one-time, Matthews was one of the best in the game, but that time has passed. He tends to get injured more and has spent time playing inside linebacker as of late. Matthews is still a solid player, but as he has aged I think he is overrated.
