Most Underrated Buckeye?

    To me there is no doubt. Its Bobby Carpenter. Hes been 1 or 2 in tackles both games and still gets to love. All off-season we heard about our LB's but he got little mention. Hawk got the majority (deservingly so) and Mike D'Andrea then u heard about the two transfers Schlegel and Kerr, and even about all everything freshman Marcus Freeman. And then, oh yeah, returning starter Carpenter. He has been all over the place this season. You still wont hear much about him but he will continue to be making play after play. Keep it up Carp!!!

    Being from Lancaster I am biased I will admit, but he has played better then all of our LB's. I am not taking a damn thing away from Hawk or anyone else, but Bobby is playing at an AA level.

    The guy that gets almost zero pub that means so much to this team is long snapper Kyle Andrews. Without Andrews over the last couple of years, Nuge, Sander and Groom might have struggled. And that would have cost us about 7 or 8 games. If not more.

    I agree but don't forget...

    Nick Mangold. He was a great leader and offensive lineman are always underrated. He one every offensive lineman awarded in college football and went in the 1st round to the jets. Even when he was drafted an analyst for ESPN said the jets reached for him. Then in the NFL he was a major part of the jets going from the 3rd worst record to a playoff team.
    I can't disagree with Bobby Carpenter. Actually when i read the Title first one that came to mind was Bobby.

    Chris Gamble is very underrated in the NFL right now.

    23Skidoo It's so Japaneasy

    My vote for 2006 goes to AJ Trapasso. He's been a pretty darn good punter for us with little to no recognition.

    I agree, Trapasso was a great punter this past season. It was awesome when he punted it against PSU and it was down on the 1! That was crazy!

    I'm gonna miss Drew Norman. Gotta love a reliable snapper.

    This thread got me thinking about underrated players over the years.... Some that come to mind...

    Jerry Rudzinsky, Nicky Sualua, Rob Kelly, Tippy Toes, Vince Workman, Jamar Martin...

    In my time some of the underrated Buckeyes....

    Kevin Houser-(consistent long snapper has turned this into a very long career)

    Jason Winrow- Never the best lineman on his team, but very consistent

    Jeff Cothran- Was a big time TB in high school. Bulked up to play Fullback and played well.

    Ty Howard- Had to play opposite Shawn Springs and did well.

    Brian Stablein
     
  14. I would have to say off this last year's team the most underrate would have to be Norman, Datish and Stan White, Jr. All three did their rolls very well with very little fanfare.

    Apparently Randy Gradishar, since he's being ignored, again, while the HOF voters ponder including Bronco Gary Zimmerman and Andre Tippett in the HOF.
