Today we're voting on the 2 vs. 15 matchup -- Charles Johnson vs. Kris Mangum.

We've been dealing with Charles Johnson being underrated by the rest of the league for three years now, and it appears that no matter what he does he's never going to get the respect he deserves. He's been one of the best pass rushing DEs in the NFC, and still doesn't get the recognition that he's earned on the field. I think it's safe to say that outside of Chris Gamble, Johnson is the most underrated Panther and is deserving of the #2 seed in this bracket.

Kris Mangum is also underrated. He ranks 2nd in team history for tight ends (behind Wesley Walls) in receptions and receiving yards, and ranks third (behind Walls and Greg Olsen) in touchdowns. Mangum was never a superstar, but he was a solid #2 tight end for the Panthers for ten years -- a feat that isn't easy to accomplish.

Personally, I think this one is an easy vote, but it's not up to me. It's up to you. So, who do you think is more underrated, Charles Johnson or Kris Mangum? Vote in the poll below, and feel free to discuss your vote in the comments.

Please remember that voting will close in 48 hours.
