What makes an underachiever?
It doesn't seem so difficult to define. In the NFL, it should be a player with a high degree of talent who does not produce up to their potential.
It seems that this type of player is often confused with the player who simply can't play, a "bust" if you will.
The purpose of this article is to identify one true underachiever for each NFL team for 2011.
There are some conditions to this list. There will be no rookies included because it would be ridiculously unfair to project someone as an underachiever based on no NFL experience.
This list will also shy away from free agents, although not exclude them entirely, because there is no guarantee that they will remain with their current team. The only way a free agent will be included on this list is if he is likely to re-sign with his existing team.
These are predictions, but the history of the player is crucial in identifying which ones are most likely to be underachievers. Put another way, a player will make this list only if they have some history of underachieving.
