New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan says veteran linebacker David Harris is the NFL's most underrated player.

Harris has played his entire seven-year career for the New York Jets. He has played all 16 regular season games in six out of seven years in the league, racking up more than 100 total tackles in four of his NFL seasons. 

The former Michigan linebacker has never made a Pro Bowl, and his coach argues that he isn't valued high enough.

“David Harris is the most underrated player in the league,” Ryan told the New York Daily News. “It ain't close! It ain’t close! You could have a top 100... and he’s not even mentioned. And I’m like, ‘What?!’”

Last season, Harris recorded 124 total tackles and two sacks while starting all 16 games. He was rated No. 18 at his position last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Harris was drafted in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
