The most overrated player for each of the NFL’s 32 franchises.

Before we get started with the obvious, it’s important to note here for anyone who takes the actual time to read an introduction that an “overrated” list does not mean what many readers will believe it to be—that is, a list of players who aren’t good.

Somehow the term “overrated” is construed as something other than what it really means: when something or someone is rated higher than it should be. That means even a list like this can include good players or better as long as the spotlight on them is disproportionally brighter than it should be. Not like it matters.

It’s a list, which means everyone will complain anyway.

Arizona Cardinals

Andy Isabella – Last year, Isabella was an exciting rookie wide receiver known for his quickness. Instead of showing himself dangerous in open space, Isabella was instead buried on the depth chart during his rookie campaign.

Things got so bad in 2019 that he was a healthy scratch for the final two regular-season games for a five-win team and 10 more players had more overall targets than he did. With DeAndre Hopkins now in town, Isabella is buried on the depth chart.

Atlanta Falcons

Hayden Hurst – We’re not exactly what the Ravens have on someone influential in the Falcons front office, but the fleecing they called an offseason trade involving a second-round pick for tight end Hayden Hurst was comical.

While Hurst isn’t yet a bust, he certainly hasn’t looked the part of first round pick and the Falcons look a little too anxious to fill the void of Austin Hooper‘s exit.
