Antonio Brown, Ike Taylor named to All-Underrated Team

An NFL.com analyst places Steelers WR Antonio Brown and CB Ike Taylor to his All-Underrated team.

NFL.com analyst Elliott Harrison came out with an All-Underrated NFL Team, and two Steelers made it.

Perhaps it's a telling sign the two players - wide receiver Antonio Brown and cornerback Ike Taylor - are two of the Steelers more showy players on the field.

Harrison wrote about Brown, "Lost in all the Mike Wallace talk: the gifted receiver still on the Steelers' roster. Brown caught 66 balls and five touchdown passes despite missing three games. He had 1,108 yards in 2011."

Oh, how long ago was 2011. A healthy 2013 for both Brown and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will likely vault him back into prominence in the league.

Taylor, who's broken leg caused him to miss his first games since 2006, was playing outstanding football until the injury. He also could be the oldest player on the team.

"Taylor has played a big role on several top-ranked defenses and three Super Bowl teams, yet he's never made a Pro Bowl. Last year, he allowed 29 completions in 73 pass attempts."

Others of note, I was particularly happy to see Dolphins LB Phillip Wheeler on this list. After destroying the Steelers in Oakland's Week 3 win, he signed a big-money deal with Miami.
