    Welker was not underrated either. His last year people were saying he was snubbed from the pro bowl when neither his recieving or return stats warrented a selection. Also wouldn't call Marion underrated. He was consistently a pro bowler for us and was making plays, it was just time for him to go (too slow).

    I would have say, Nat Moore should also be included in this list of most underated dolphins. His perpormce against the Bears in 1985 was classic!

    Most underrated dolphins , interesting group of choices so far.

    1-Andra Franklin third in NFL in rushing during strike shortened 1982 NFL season. would have been a bright star if not for the injuries.

    2-Terry Kirby another player that was on the rise that got curtailed by injuries. Got injured in his second season as he was becoming a star and was never the same but was still a productive NFL player. As a rookie had 75 receptions at 11 yards a catch.

    3-Ed Newman G- Never mentioned as one our best olinemen but was a 4 time probowler. Great player on our line from 73 to 84.

    4-Nat Moore Wr- In another era he might have been a hall of famer. Guy had great hands and made plays.

    5-Tony Nathen RB- Great receiver who made plays out of backfield. would have had a much better career supporting better runningbacks.

    i liked Oliver and his big play ability, but his part in Olivadotti's copiously porous defense precludes him from being on my list. Sure he might intercept 5 passes a year, but how many times did we see him have James Lofton or Al Toon run past him, or see Rob Moore make a big play in his face.

    Also, being a pro-bowler should eliminate someone from "most underrated" contest, although it is possible for a pro-bowler to be generally underrated of course (ie. Fryar and Timbo)

    just some names that pop into my head:

    1. McDuffie
    2. Parmalee
    3. Gardener
    4. Jeff Cross (did make the probowl in '90 though, but was a 9th rounder)
    5. Kirby

    Brent Smith
    Troy Drayton
    Brent Smith is a good one

    Brent Smith was a very underated OL man that we kept putting in there because we could not ever find someone better. Then he was almost dominant when healthy. He was just injured alot in the end and we could not count on him playing.

    I agree 100% with his first couple seasons, he made some remarkable plays
    with a ability to get alot of yards after the catch. I think everyones point here is that his play if memory serves me right diminished greatly right after he recieved his big contract. Making him overrated and never living up to
    his potentual.

    Greenwood I thought was neither over or underrated. Average player who more often dissappointed me.
    Bernie Parmalee comes to mind first..... lots of good names mentioned. Drayton and Gadsden etc.
