When talking about an underated legend, names like Ray Lewis, Patrick Willis and James Harrison are thrown around.

But, they're forgetting the three-time Pro Bowler, who as a rookie was picked in the second round after all these linebackers.

His name is Lofa Tatupu.

This kid—who once had three interceptions in one game—never gives up on his temmates and brings energy, leadership, and heart.

People says he doesn't get enough attention because he's in Seattle, but they're wrong. You might think people don't know him, but trust me, a lot of people do.

This could probably be the biggest steal in Seahawks history, because they're looking at a future Hall of Famer.

Yeah, he might have got charged with a DUI, but he's not like other players.

Other players says that they did what they did, while Tatupu sayd: I'm sorry for what I did.

He will prove for all the years he got resigned.

This is the most underrated linebacker probably drafted in the league. Tatupu is the heart of the Seahawks. He makes the team motivated and shows heart on the field.

He is one of the best linebackers in the league.
