Who’s the most underrated player in Bucs history?
At this point, Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans are used to some of the team’s best and most iconic players not getting the respect and attention they deserve on a national, league-wide level.
Some of the NFL’s best players of many different generations have treated Bucs fans to elite football on a weekly basis, only to be ignored by Pro Bowl ballots, All-Pro voters, and even Hall of Fame considerations.
The Bucs have had tons of underrated players on both sides of the ball over the years, but which one takes the top spot?
We asked Bucs fans for their choice, and here’s what they said:

Jamel Dean is woefully disrespected in these parts. https://t.co/wi35CaV76C

Is it possible that it’s still Mike Evans? What he’s done is just incredible. https://t.co/W1Jbsi7MSP

Simeon Rice had 122 sacks across 12 seasons and was a key member of that historic Super Bowl winning defense in 2002 and is somehow not a HOFer. https://t.co/5QjXKn6pm3

Nationwide – Easily LaVonte, Ali also deserved a lot more national attention. By Bucs fans – Joe J. – He was so key to the ‘02 Championship, always wonder how good he would have been without the injuries.
