Most Underrated Player in the NFL?

The Eagles have had one of the biggest offseason's in NFL history with the signing of Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins, Ronnie Brown, and Vince Young. All of those stars added to a roster with Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson, Asante Samuel, LeSean McCoy and your bound to forget about some key players on the roster. The Eagles boast one of the NFL's underrated players and he is bound to have another great year with all the newly added talent around him. 

Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Trent Cole was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL draft back in 2005 and was a solid player for a mediocre team, Cincinnati, back in college. Cole came to the Eagles and has thrived year in and year out but has yet to gain the real recognition that the likes of Justin Tuck, Dwight Freeney, Mario Williams, Jared Allen and others receive. Yes many, if not all, Eagles fans and all die hard NFL fans know his name but with casual viewers his name always slips by.

Over the last four season Cole has averaged 11 sacks and 67 tackles a season. Cole seasonal sack total has been ranked in the top 10 twice in his career and top 20 two more times. Cole, 28, is bound to have a breakout season with teams unable to double him with Cullen Jenkins and Jason Babin now on the line while lock down corners Asante Samuel, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha will give him more time to get to the quarterback. By the end of this season the Eagles star shouldn't be underrated any more.


  1. Btw, any more is supposed to be spelled "anymore". Other than that, good article.

  2. Either spelling is correct. If you are going to play the f*@King spelling police as least be correct!
    It is a good article.

  3. And apparently, the Eagles boost Cole. I guess he can't reach things. Thoughtful write up ruined by sloppy spelling and weak grammar.

  4. "The Eagles boost one of the most underrated players in the league and is bound to have another breakout year with all this talent around him."
