25 Most Overrated NFL Players Right Now

23. Bud Dupree, EDGE — Tennessee Titans

Through the first seven seasons of Bud Dupree’s career, he’s yet to make the Pro Bowl or earn the designation of an All-Pro player. That’s all well and good. He’s been a decent edge rusher throughout his career — which included one season with more than 10.0 sacks (11.5 in 2019).

As such, why is it that Dupree is the seventh-highest paid outside linebacker in the NFL? To put it into perspective, Dupree is making $16.5 million in 2022. Dupree’s cap hit is third among outside linebackers. The only OLB’s making more this year are reigning Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt and four-time Pro Bowler Joey Bosa. Dupree is making more than Matt Judon, Khalil Mack, Danielle Hunter, and Bradley Chubb, among others.
