Every team has its super stars and has players that are supposed to be and are expected by fans to be superstars.
It also has players who despite their on-field accomplishments never get the credit they deserve.
Let's take an inside look at America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys, and see who on this roster of stars fit into the overrated and underrated category.
Ever since Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith retired, the Cowboys have been searching for his successor but have had little success in finding a quality replacement.
They thought when they drafted Julius Jones they had found their guy but he just never worked out. Marion Barber also had his opportunity.

As Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones expected, cornerback Mike Jenkins arrived at Valley Ranch Tuesday morning for the first day of the team's mandatory minicamp.

IRVING, Texas How important is it for NFL players to maintain a strict diet? Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has bragged about his ability to devour McDonald's on a regular basis yet still stay in elite shape.
On the other hand, running back Joe McKnight said last month that eating at the same popular fast food establishment allowed him to gain 16 pounds his rookie...
Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins reported to Valley Ranch for the start of a three-day minicamp. Jenkins is recovering from shoulder surgery and won't participate in on-field drills. The Cowboys have resisted overtures from multiple teams seeking to acquire Jenkins after Dallas traded up to draft Morris Claiborne in the 2012 draft and signed Brandon Carr to a $50 million deal...
Cornerback Mike Jenkins is back at Valley Ranch with the rest of his Dallas Cowboys teammates.
After skipping voluntary workouts this offseason, Jenkins rejoined the team Tuesday for the start of a mandatory veteran minicamp. The three-day session is the last for the Cowboys until reporting to training camp in California in late July.

It’s important to instill values in your kids while they’re young. If possible, while their brains are still spongy and unable to record memories. And what could more important than the line of sports apparel that you endorse? If you’re Tony Romo, it’s second only to making sure you have time to fit in 18 holes every day.
Sensing an opportunity with Father’s Day upcoming...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was very happy to see cornerback Mike Jenkins show up for the beginning of this week’s mandatory minicamp. He once again reiterated that Jenkins won’t be traded.

Although Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jason Thatcher may have changed his tune on comments he made earlier this year about the lack of leadership within the locker room, the concern is certainly plausible.
Who is the leader for the Dallas Cowboys?
