Underrated: Vontaze Burfict, LB, Cincinnati Bengals

The once highly touted Burfict was a bust (with a lousy attitude) at the 2012 scouting combine and went undrafted. He had to plead for a chance in the NFL, and Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis finally gave him an opportunity. Through the first 12 games at least, he led the NFL in tackles with 131.
