Not to Seahawks fans but, I feel like he’s (Lockett) always been underrated.
I don't think there's any doubt about that statement being true. Lockett has had respectable stats, but has never led the league in any of the triple crown metrics (yards, receptions, TD's), he's never played in the limelight, ie a SB or conference championship game, and he doesn't play for a nation wide fan base like the Cowboys or Steelers.
I refer to the WR position, in my eyes, as the Rodney Dangerfield position as I don't give it much respect, at least in terms of the physical tools required to succeed. A good example is Cooper Kupp, who ran the 40 in 4.62 seconds, a sloth for that position, and won't be going shirtless to any interviews ala Metcalf, yet when healthy, he's the best receiver in the game. There's also a lot of very good Lockett-like receivers that can do a more than adequate job that don't require the spending of a top draft pick or an 8 digit contract.
One of the best teams that we've ever fielded, the 2014 edition that should have won their 2nd straight Lombardi, featured two UFDA's, Balwin and Kearse, as our starting WR's, and they performed spectacularly.
