Why Ike Taylor is the most underrated player in the NFL

While the Steelers secondary has been productive, Ike Taylor is the star this season, even more than Troy Polamalu. Taylor has no interceptions this season which makes sense because they do not have even 10 takeaways this season. However, Taylor has been great on coverage in the backfield and making key tackles. Taylor has been very quiet even though he is having an all-pro season as the cornerback. Without Ike Taylor, Pittsburgh would be nowhere near where they are now. I am not sure if Taylor will make 1 pro bowl in his career, but I will always remember him for his effort in the backfield.
