With 2012 NFL free agency set to kick off on Tuesday, we can now squeeze in a few more previews for the chaos that we're about to encounter.
In this article, we're going to take a look at four very underrated players that should have huge impacts in 2012.
Some of these players simply haven't gotten the chance to prove themselves while some aren't really being talked about.
With that being said, here are four underrated players that will have huge impacts in 2012.
How can Marques Colston be underrated?
Well for starters, no one is talking about him. And secondly, everyone is talking about Vincent Jackson.
Let me make this clear: Colston is a much better wide receiver that V-Jax.
You might say that Colston is just a product of Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints—but I beg to differ.
Colston is quite the physical specimen and should receive a ton of interest this offseason from teams that need a No. 1 wide receiver.
Brandon Carr was just a No. 2 cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, now he's likely going to be paid like a No. 1 this offseason.
Carr is one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL and will get his chance to prove to the world why he's so underrated next season.
Where do I think Carr will land in 2012? The Dallas Cowboys.
Put aside the trash talking and his rather questionable behavior on the field, you can't deny that Cortland Finnegan is one of the better cornerbacks that the NFL has to offer—and that's his problem.
Finnegan simply gives the media too much to talk about rather than just playing to the best of his ability, which is the level of an elite cornerback.
For the majority of the 2011 NFL season, Michael Bush was the Oakland Raiders No. 1 running back. Bush finished the season with a solid 997 yards while punching in seven touchdowns and reeling in 37 passes for 418 yards.
Bush is a well-rounded back that is extremely powerful but can also be a huge threat in the passing game.
If Bush gets the chance to receive the bulk of the carries next season, he's going to turn a lot of heads.
