With free agency right around the corner, here are five NFL offensive veterans set to hit the open market that are vastly overrated.

The NFL season has officially concluded and now the focus of the league shifts to free agency and the draft. While teams will still be working on getting cap compliant by making cuts, the names of the free agents are starting to become clearer. While there are plenty of quality players available, free agency is a time where teams more often than not pay too much for an overrated player.

Here are the five most overrated free agents heading into this free agency period.

Free agency target Cam Robinson, T, Jaguars

Cam Robinson has enjoyed an up and down career with the Jaguars to this point in his career. He started off struggling mightily to stop pass rushers and was a liability to the team.

Time has helped him develop though, and while not an elite player at his position, Robinson has become an above-average starting left tackle. Fortunately for him but unfortunately to whoever signs him, average left tackles get paid handsomely.

Considering the importance the position plays, average linemen are commonly overpaid for in free agency. There is a real chance Robinson gets close to $20 million a season if he is a free agent which is far too much for a player of his caliber. Again, he is a fine starter but he isn’t some sort of premiere tackle.

That said, expect him to get paid like one, which makes him overrated heading into free agency.
