Today we're voting on the 6 vs. 11 matchup -- Brad Hoover vs. Keydrick Vincent.
This one will be difficult because both of these guys define underrated.
Brad Hoover wasn't one to rack up any flashy stats or get major media attention, but he was an integral part of the Panthers success running the football during his tenure in Carolina. He opened up running lanes for his backfield mates better than anyone else in franchise history, as evidenced by the fact that the Panthers still haven't found a lead blocker to replace him since he was released at the end of the 2009 season.
Keydrick Vincent was only a Panther for two seasons, but the two seasons he played in Carolina were 2008 and 2009 -- the 12-4 division championship season and the year when DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart each eclipsed 1000 rushing yards. That's not bad for two years work from a veteran offensive guard. Of course Vincent was only one player on the offense that generated a division title and a historic performance from its running backs, but he was one of the key cogs to the machine that never gets talked about anymore. I'd say that makes him underrated.
Alright, now it's time to vote. Who do you think deserves to move on in the tournament? Let's open up the poll and find out who comes out on top. This is a tough vote, but it has to be done. So, who do you think was more underrated -- Brad Hoover or Keydrick Vincent? Cast your vote now!
