Here are five underrated 2020 NFL Draft prospects on the offensive side of the ball.
Each year, there are prospects that go under the radar and eventually some wind up having moderate to very successful NFL careers, surprising virtually everyone when they do.
There is a myriad of factors that can contribute to a player being considered underrated. But the most common factors that I have observed are, where a prospect has played, who else was around them or that they are simply apart of a class that is deep at one position or many. Other factors could include usage in college, production and in some cases, injury history may play a role.
Going into the 2020 NFL Draft, there is bound to be one forgotten player that exceeds expectations and will catch people by surprise. After spending months evaluating guys like Jerry Jeudy, or Chase Young, most evaluators are fairly confident that given the intangibles that these players possess, that they are likely to succeed in the NFL.
But as history shows, players we were confident in will sometimes fail, while players we thought were day three guys surprise us. The best example of this came in 2017 when George Kittle became the ninth tight end drafted that year while guys such as Gerald Everett, O.J. Howard, and Adam Shaheen went much higher. Now, Kittle is arguably the best tight end in the NFL.
Today, I present you with five 2020 NFL Draft prospects on offense who are flying under the radar and have the potential to find success at the next level.
