With such a large group of players for this position that includes both corners and safeties, it's difficult to use only two guys.
But when you think about player reputation in comparison to actual production, the deciding factor becomes a little easier.
Overrated: DeAngelo Hall
As grateful as I am to have Hall on our team, I don't think there's any question he's a bit overrated around the NFL.
In terms of playmaking ability at the cornerback position, Hall is one of the best. But with average coverage skills and an expressive attitude, he is far from the lock-down corner he's paid to be.
Again, I like having Hall on this Redskins team, but there's no way I stick up for him in an argument over whether or not he's a cornerstone for the franchise.
Now that Carlos Rogers is out, Hall will be strapped with even more pressure next season, serving as the Redskins' only true No. 1 corner. Let's see how he handles that.
Underrated: LaRon Landry
I really hate to use Landry here, but last season should have been enough to change the way people (and offenses) think about him as a player.
Up until last season, Landry could have very well been labeled "overrated." He was a safety who was commonly caught out of position, his coverage skills were poor and he always went for the bone-crushing hits that usually left his team in vulnerable positions.
But last season, while playing a more natural position closer to the line of scrimmage and in the box, Landry was on pace for the Pro Bowl (and arguably DPOY) by about Week 5.
After his season was cut short in 2010, Landry has made it known he would enter 2011 with more fire and intensity than ever before. Add that to the fact that he's an intimidating missile on the football field with a nose for the football, plus a fearless tackling style, and you have a recipe for disaster—good disaster, that is.
Opposing offenses will game plan around Landry and his side of the field, trying to stay as far away from the crazed No. 30 as possible. Before long, Landry should be a household name and finally live up to his potential.
