More and more, new, advanced statistics are helping redefine how we value (and sometimes overrate) NFL players.
Sites such as Pro Football Focus, Football Outsiders and Advanced NFL Stats are providing analysts and fans alike with new ways to evaluate every single player on a game-to-game and season-to-season basis.
And as more and more individuals begin accepting such statistics, we've come to a very obvious conclusion: Some players, who were previously held in high regard, are much more overrated once the cold, hard facts start rolling in.
In the following slides, we'll present a few of the NFL's biggest examples. Keep in mind, this list is not designed to present five players we think are no good; rather, just five players that don't hold up against the advanced stats but are otherwise well-regarded.
