Tyler Lockett is the MOST UNDERRATED WR in the NFL

Lockett is tied for the NFL lead with four touchdown receptions on the season, also ranking inside the top 10 in both catches (24) and receiving yards (259).

The 28-year-old has transformed himself from an inconsistent deep threat into a reliable target in all areas of the field, totaling 2,022 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns over the past two seasons. He is a go-to option for Russell Wilson and the No. 2 scoring attack in the NFL.

Despite Lockett's success, the only Pro Bowl selection in his career was as a returner during his rookie season.

Metcalf wants to see his teammate get more respect.
