I would go not by characters, but if it's possible by Rank. And it would be Vice Admirals.
Strangely, but most people think not high about them, even though they are the next strongest team after the Admirals among Marines.
Im gonna say Usopp. Having the title of sniper for the crew pits him up against some of the strongest characters in the one piece world and he's definitely risen up to the challenge.
Usopp. Not so much underrated by readers or fans, but in the manga itself. As Thundergod92 said, Usopp was basically a scared weakling, who was forced to take on some pretty tough opponents. And he has certainly established himself in the category of strongest characters in the manga (even though his personality is, still, the opposite.), he's risen up to the challenge and yet, people keep underestimating him.

What I do find interesting about this category, is that most underrated characters are going to be overrated by others.
I nominate Brook. The simple fact that he is the secondary swordman within the strawhats is prejudicious to him.
What about Big Mom? She just has shown ONCE and everybody is saying She's the weakest of the Yonkous.

I nominate Nami. Even though many say her fights were disappointing, I expect much more from here. We only saw the tip of a mountain peeking through a dense cloud.
I'd like to nominate Crocodile Not only was he almost ready to take over Arabasta before Luffy showed up, but he amassed a small army (even if they were low life flunkies..). Also in Impel Down and the WB War Croc showed his capability and determination. Honestly not only for ability, but for character and belligerence I'm nominating him.

Usopp. Never will I forget the epicness of his anger when the fat mole lady made fun of Luffy and said he was dead. Usopp grew balls and defended himself.
He actually became a man durin the timeskip.
