Mike Devito's been overshadowed his entire NFL career.
With the New York Jets, defensive linemen Kris Jenkins and Shaun Ellis and Sione Po'uha received most of the publicity.
Because DeVito wasn't a sack machine, or a double-team-demanding nose tackle, it was easy for him to be overlooked.
This year with the Chiefs, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston and Dontari Poe are the defensive front players snagging the headlines.
Meanwhile, DeVito is playing elite football, and the casual fan isn't aware of it.
PFF has him ranked as the ninth-most effective 3-4 defensive end heading into this huge matchup with the Broncos.
He's much more effective against the run than he is rushing the passer, but despite all of the Broncos' prolific passing numbers, they're 14th in rushing attempts this season.
DeVito will make a difference.
