7 Denver Broncos Players the Seattle Seahawks Say They Can't Sleep on
The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Super Bowl XLVIII promises to have many interesting individual matchups between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, such as Denver quarterback Peyton Manning against the Seahawks’ "Legion of Boom" defensive secondary.

However, there are a few other intriguing matchups with players whose names don't exactly carry the star power of quarterback Peyton Manning or receivers Wes Welker and Eric Decker.

During Tuesday's media day session, I asked several members of the Seahawks which Denver players were flying under the radar leading up to this game. 

Some of the Seahawks players declined to name any individuals, instead offering general praise toward the entire Broncos team. 

"I think that's a great team. There isn't one in particular person on the team that goes under the radar," said defensive end Chris Clemons.

"They have a very good group and a very cohesive unit. To me, they play well together, so I can't say one person is under the radar or getting much focus. They are a very good team."

Center Max Unger agreed.  

"They're all pretty good to be honest with you," he said, "I don't think there is no such thing as an 'overrated' player, and I'm not sure there is such thing as an 'underrated' player. They all made it this far in the NFL, and to play in this game, obviously doing a lot right."

While Clemons and Unger didn't have an opinion, several of their teammates did. Read on to find out which Broncos players not named Manning or Welker are contributors whom the Seahawks can't forget about on Sunday. 

P.S. I asked the same question of about 10 Denver Broncos during media day. Not one was willing to name a specific player, instead offering praise to the entire Seahawks team.
