Warrick Dunn - Most Underrated RB of All-Time?

Warrick Dunn is one of the most accomplished rushers in Buccaneer history. But is he underrated?

From 1997 to 2008, Warrick Dunn rushed for 10,967 yards. Of those, 4,986 came in a Buccaneer uniform. The only other Buccaneers to rush for more yards in Tampa Bay are Mike Alstott (5,088) and James Wilder (5,957).

Is it possible that, despite such a productive career, Dunn is underrated? Former NFL running back Tiki Barber thinks so. During a segment on Good Morning Football, Barber said that Dunn is one of the most underrated players in NFL history.

"He had a fantastic career," Barber said. "Interestingly - one of the most underrated players in the history of the league. Ten thousand-plus yards rushing, obviously a ton of receptions - just a dynamic player. No one remembers or talks about how amazing of a player he was."

As it stands, Dunn is No. 22 on the NFL's all-time rushing list. He's within 1,000 yards of Hall-of-Famers O.J. Simpson, Thurman Thomas and John Riggins.

Barber reflected Dunn, his brother and Buccaneer legend Ronde and more during his Good Morning Football segment, which can be viewed above.
