Every year, NFL writer Pete Prisco does a write-up for CBS Sports, outlining his take on the most underrated and most overrated players on each team.
For the Jets, he made an interesting choice for the most overrated player. Take a look:
Overrated: C Nick Mangold – He didn’t have the type of season we expect from Mangold. Is it a one-year thing? Or a trend?
Take a look at the rest of Prisco’s post by clicking here.
It’s hard to call a guy overrated after one season that isn’t the level you expect, isn’t it? Although Nick Mangold’s PFF grade has gone down, he wasn’t particularly bad. It’s not as if Mangold reminded us of Wayne Hunter at any point.
Remember, he had to endure playing next to the great Vladimir Ducasse. A lineman’s game is going to suffer a bit when they have to accommodate for the guy next to them. Playing their own position is hard enough, at times Nick had to almost play TWO positions.
Did Nick Mangold have his moments of off play? Sure. But does that make him the most overrated on the roster? I don’t think so, what do you guys think?
