Barnwell’s 2019 All-Underrated team: Picking 24 NFL players, from Tannehill to Judon (Bill Barnwell, ESPN)
Wide receiver: Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Sutton was erased from the game on the other side of the field Sunday, which was a product of another player on this list. Even after a day in which he caught just one of eight targets for 27 yards, the second-year wideout has emerged as one of the best draft picks of the post-Super Bowl era for the Broncos. It was Sutton’s worst performance since a 40-yard Week 2 performance against the Bears; over the eight games between those contests, Sutton racked up 645 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

“Justin’s a really good player — smart, physical, can cover from sideline to sideline, can cover in the slot,” Kareem Jackson said after the game. “He can do whatever the defense asks him to do. He’s a really good player, like I said, he’s one of the leaders on this defense, so I’ve enjoyed playing with him. He’s a huge part of this team and a great leader.”
