Each summer I’ve put together a list of the most overrated and most underrated players on each of the league’s 32 teams.

In doing so, I’ve also picked the league’s overall winner ­­– or loser, depending on the category — for each designation.

So who is this year’s most underrated player? I wanted to pick Dallas quarterback Tony Romo (I mean it), but decided against it because the player I did pick has never been to the Pro Bowl, and that’s a shame.

Overrated: TE Brandon Pettigrew ­­ While I didn’t agree with their decision to take tight end Eric Ebron in the first round, I get it. This former first-­round pick drops a lot of passes and isn’t the threat the team needs in the middle of the field.

Underrated: G Larry Warford ­­ As a rookie, he was dominant at right guard. He should have been in the Pro Bowl. With a year of seasoning, I bet he gets there this season.
