NFL's 5 Most Underrated Wide Receivers
Instead, guys who are more over-hyped grab the media's attention.
With this group of wide receivers, it is no different.
Here are the most underrated sets of hands in the NFL today.
Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

The mercurial Chiefs wideout has had a solid four-year NFL career to this point.
Last season, he made his first Pro Bowl after racking up over 1,100 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns for the campaign.
He has also turned in two other seasons of around 1,000 receiving yards as well.
Bowe continues to get little to no love from the national media as one of the best players at his position in the league.

Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd had one of the best seasons in franchise history last year.
He caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns as the focal point of Denver's potent passing attack.
It might have been the only solid season of his eight-year NFL career, but it was too good to go unnoticed.
With another season like this in 2011, he likely will not be flying under the radar anymore.

The Steelers speedster is quickly rising up the ranks as one of the best wideouts in the game today.
That's why it's a shame that he still doesn't get the love that he ultimately deserves.
After a solid rookie season where he had over 700 yards receiving, Wallace turned in an even better year in 2010 with over 1,200 yards through the air and 10 TDs for the AFC champs.
Wallace should once again be the main target for Pro Bowl QB Ben Roethlisberger this season, giving him another great chance to show why he is the real deal.
Santana Moss, Washington Redskins

In his 10 seasons in the NFL, he has had four seasons of 1,000-plus receiving yards and has also piled up 52 TDs during his career.
He is not the biggest or fastest receiver out there, and that is a big reason why he doesn't get mentioned as much these days.
However, it's evident that at 32 years old, Moss can still play and should be considered among the NFL's better wideouts.
Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys

After doing little to nothing in his first three seasons in the league, Dallas WR Miles Austin has turned in two very good campaigns in succession.
During these two years, he has averaged 75 catches for over 1,100 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.
