Overrated: OLB Paul Kruger. I know he's coming off a good season, but is he really an elite player like they paid him? I don't think so. Good, not great.
Underrated: S T.J. Ward. In his third season, this hard-hitting safety improved in all areas and could have easily been a Pro Bowl player.
As much as I would like to chastise anyone for calling our top free agent acquisition overrated, it would be kind of hypocritical of me to do that. Sure, I am fully behind Paul Kruger now that he is a member of the Browns, but for the contract he was projected to be getting, I spent most of the time prior to the start of free agency referring to Kruger as overvalued (which basically implies overrated).
As for Ward, there seems to be a strong trend among members of the media indicating that he is underrated. This is not a knock on Ward, but in a funny kind of way, I think the constant harping that Ward is "underrated" is a bit "overrated." Ward has done some good things, but has also been banged up a lot and hasn't proven to be among the elite class of safeties in the NFL.
Try to come up with your own overrated/underrated pair for the Browns. When you think through it, it might be harder for you to come up with selections than you think.
