5. Who is the most underrated Detroit Lion?

Tony Fischer:

"Reily Reiff. He has settled in nicely to that left tackle spot and quietly turned in a solid year in 2013. Look for Reiff to help turn an equally underrated offensive line into one of the NFL’s best in 2014."

Vincent Bianchi:

"“Matthew Stafford.” “Fans were ready to run Stafford out-of-town last season, there’s no doubt he struggled down the stench but he has one of the strongest arms in the league and every quarterback coach in the NFL will tell you the potential for Matthew Stafford is unreal. Lets not forget he did throw for 5,000 yards and 41 touchdowns in 2011.” ” Now he has new coaches who have the experience of working with great quarterbacks to go along with the addition of Eric Ebron and Golden Tate, Stafford is poised for a great 2014. He is arguably the best quarterback in Lion history. I understated that isn’t saying much. But for a team that has gotten it wrong so many times at the quarterback position, I think the Lions have their man for many years to come.”"

Nate Williams:

I’m going with wide receiver, Kevin Ogletree as the most underrated player on the Detroit Lions roster.

Now, admittedly I probably wouldn’t have said Ogletree prior to the start of training camp. However the reports out of Allen Park are that Ogletree and Stafford have really began to click in Lions scrimmages and 7-on7’s.

Ogletree focused on his conditioning and training during the offseason and paired that with his already good hands. The difference has shown.

Remember too, Ogletree was the guy who held down the Cowboys No. 1 receiver spot a few years ago when Dez Bryant was injured. I look for Ogletree to win the Lions No. 3 receiver spot and have a terrific year in the Motor City.
