Every team in the NFL has a player who fans and analysts think is better than they really are, thus making them overrated. 

In some cases, the players are overrated because, once great, they have begun to hit the downsides of their careers and have slipped into the limbo that is mediocrity. 

For some, potential drives their popularity and fuels the fire for their fans. Potential is a great thing to have, but when the results aren't there, the potential becomes disappointment. 

For still others, the large media markets in which they play are the driving force behind any particular player becoming overrated. 

Sometimes, it's a combination of all of the above reasons.
