Ex-Vol among 'underrated' players

Today's lead story at cbs.sportsline.com is Pete Prisco's annual report on the most overrated and underrated players in pro football. A former Tennessee standout is among the guys tabbed in the latter category.

John Henderson, who won the Outland Trophy as a Vol defensive tackle in 2000 and was a finalist in 2001, is Prisco's pick as the most underrated member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who selected him in Round 1 of the 2002 National Football League Draft.

Here's what Prisco has to say about the former Nashville prep star and UT standout:

"For whatever reason, he doesn't get the due he deserves. Maybe it's because he plays next to Marcus Stroud."

For what it's worth, Prisco rates Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter the most overrated player in all of pro football and ranks New England Patriots defensive end Ty Warren the most underrated.
