Things are real slow once again in the NFL world, at least when it comes to the Texans, that is. So while we wait for training camps to begin, now is a perfect time to talk about who the top five most underrated players are in Texans history.
Nick Scurfield ofTexans.com tweeted his thoughts a couple of days ago, and came up with a pretty good list.
My top-5 underrated players in #Texans history: Chester Pitts, Domanick Williams, Jamie Sharper, Eric Winston, Matt Schaub

The inclusion of Matt Schaub was a pretty big surprise, and received some heat on Twitter. Sure enough an old article published back in May on NFL.com was dug up, where Alex Gellhar also listed his top five most overrated Texans, which included Connor Barwin.
In a more recent response to all of this, Patrick D. Starr over at State of the Texans published his analysis of the most underrated players, and also included Owen Daniels on the list. It’s hard to disagree, since Daniels has 4,635 career yards under his name and 26 scores.
Finally, the Texans’ tight ends ranked 3rd on ESPN’s AFC South Blog within the division. You can check out Matt Williamson and Paul Kuharasky’s breakdown here.
