NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison on Wednesday published his “All-Underrated Team”, and two familiar faces made the cut.
At corner, Desmond Trufant got the nod for his impressive work in Atlanta's defensive backfield. The 24-year-old has developed into one of the position's most talented and reliable forces — as evident by his high coverage grades and the respect he's garnered across the league. A productive 2015 should push Trufant into the upper-echelon of CBs and away from the underrated label.
It's easy for punters to fly under the radar — even those who tackle like linebackers — so it's no surprise to see Matt Bosher's name on the list. By finishing sixth in net yardage in each of the past two years, the former Miami Hurricane has quietly emerged as one of the NFL's best. As Harrison noted, Bosher induced more fair catches (28) than returns (26) last season — a testament not only to his powerful leg, but to his accuracy, as well.
