The NFL is a league full of great players, but some get far more recognition than others.
Sometimes it all depends on where a player plays as to whether he gets respected or not.
One wide receiver that not many people talk about plays in Seattle.
The Seahawks are rarely talked about on a national basis.
But, former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall believes that Tyler Lockett is the most underrated receiver in football.

Lockett has played in Seattle his whole career.
Also, he is a smaller wide receiver and that could deter some people from thinking he is one of the best.
In each of his last four seasons, Lockett has recorded at least 1,000 receiving yards.
He has also played in every single game of his NFL career.
That is eight straight seasons without missing a start.
Lockett was one of the favorite targets for Geno Smith last year.
Even entering his age-31 season, Lockett should once again be a major part of the Seahawks offense.
He should continue to play well as he ages because he rarely takes hits.
Lockett knows where and when to get on the ground to avoid taking any unnecessary punishment.
Also, the Seahawks drafting Jaxon Smith-Njigba should allow their offense to be more open.
Lockett, Smith-Njigba, and DK Metcalf should provide one of the best pass-catching trios in the NFL.
The Seahawks have reloaded their offense and should be one of the most explosive teams in the league in 2023.
