5. Geno Atkins, DT, (Underrated)
He doesn’t get the national notoriety because he doesn’t play for a “premier market” team, he doesn’t put up gaudy sack totals, and he hasn’t had a prolonged holdout for a new contract, but defensive tackle Geno Atkins is one of the very best at his position in the NFL.
Prior to the start of the 2018 season, NFL.com ranked Atkins as the 4th-best defensive tackle in the NFL, only behind Aaron Donald, Gerald McCoy, and Fletcher Cox. Atkins has been named an All-Pro three different times in his career, and yet most NFL fans don’t fully give him credit for good he actually is.
