Unappreciated: The NFL's Top 10 Most Underrated First Round Picks

If you are a NFL fan or just a sports fan in general, you know what is just around the corner—the NFL Draft. This event is one of the most highly anticipated events of the entire year.

The Draft can very easily make or break a franchise. The draftees that get the most exposure to the media are the first round picks.

They are the ones that land the most lucrative contracts, yet haven't even played a NFL down before. In addition, they carry the ridiculous franchise, media, and fan expectations to make an instant splash with the franchise.

If they fail, they are labeled the infamous "B-word," a bust. Plus, they will always have to hear their names on the "largest bust of all time" lists usually composed by fans and media who've never played a meaningful down before.

However, there seem to be first round picks that are simply forgotten, just because they did not play for a good team, injuries, or were just plainly overshadowed by more media-friendly players.

This slideshow lists the top 10 underrated picks of all time in descending order. Please leave your comments to add suggestions or opinions to this slide show if you would like.
