Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com plays his annual underrated/overrated game, looking at each NFL team and picking one player for each category. His choices for the Patriots?
Overrated: Brandon Meriweather
Underrated: BenJarvus Green-Ellis
On Meriweather, Prisco writes, "He is a problem when it comes to coverage, yet he goes to Pro Bowls. How does that happen? He even came out on some downs."
On Green-Ellis, Prisco writes, "He's a grinder who moves the chains. He might never be a big-play runner, but he knows how to get the tough yards."
Last year, Prisco put offensive tackle Matt Light in the "overrated" category and cornerback Leigh Bodden in the "underrated" category.
