For the Packers, Im going Jeron McMillan. He's a rookie but he's played very, very well. Or Sam Shields/Ryan Pickett.
While I don't think Clemons gets the recognition he deserves as a pass rusher (thhe pressure he creates is greater than his sack numbers indicate.) The main reason i say he is underrated is that most people think he can't defend the run. Clemons is actually very disciplined in run defense, he's really the only guy on our DL that stays on the field on almost every situation.
However KJ Wright completely slipped my mind, and I would have to agree that he is the most underrated.
