    So who's the most underrated player in the league heading into 2006?

    Anybody hear of Ian Scott? He's a starting defensive tackle for the Chicago Bears. He also plays next to Tommie Harris, who gets all the attention.

    ...

    So who's the league's most overrated? There are a lot of name players to choose from, but the winner is Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams. He isn't nearly as good as his reputation, which is Lone Star big.

    ...

    New Orleans Saints

    Overrated: Quarterback Drew Brees had a few good seasons in San Diego, but he's a system passer who lacks a big arm. And he's coming off shoulder surgery. The Saints paid way too much to get him.


    ...

    San Diego Chargers

    Overrated: Outside linebacker Steve Foley is good at rushing the passer, but he struggles in coverage. The Chargers hide him some in their scheme, but when it shows up it isn't pretty.

    Underrated: Defensive end Luis Castillo was overshadowed by fellow rookie Shawne Merriman last season, but was good as a rookie starter. Castillo will only get better in 2006.

    Choketown Faders

    Overrated: The Raiders have not had the return on investment they hoped when they took offensive tackle Robert Gallery with the second overall pick in '04. He moves from the right side to the left side -- his more natural spot -- so that could help. But he isn't in the elite class the Raiders hoped he'd join.

    Underrated: Playing next to Warren Sapp, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly has developed into a solid player. Kelly, a third-year player from Mississippi State, is a 300-pound force in the middle who has a quick first step.

    I disagree about Foley. Everything else is pretty much accurate.

    Roy is still a legend at Texas. I just don't get it now that he's an NFL player that's been very average to just above average.
