Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Detroit Lions in the 1st round with the #2 pick.
Ndamukong Suh was the best player in the 2010 draft and will serve as the foundation for a rebuilding Lion defense. Suh is an elite talent with the size, strength, athleticism and football instincts to develop into a Pro Bowl defensive tackle and jumpstart the Lion defense's resurgence. The additions of Corey Williams and Kyle Vanden Bosch will help take pressure off of Suh and put him in the best position to succeed. Defensive tackles do not have a great track record when selected in the top 5 but Suh is as close to a sure thing as you will find at the position.


  • Hands down the best player in the 2010 NFL Draft.  Dominates games vs. top competition
  • Sheds blocks well
  • Tremendous athlete with a non-stop motor
  • Excellent strength and utilizes it well at the point of attack
  • Commands double teams
  • Finds the ball and disrupts plays in the backfield
  • A force against the run
  • Collapses the pocket
  • Fundamentally sound
  • 4 career interceptions including a game changer vs. Missouri in 2010
  • Has a knack for blocking field goals
  • Rare combination of good measureables, production and intangibles


  • Lacks ideal girth but has the body to pack on a few more pounds
  • More of a good rather than great pass rusher (Big 12 championship vs. Texas withstanding)
  • Durability - Has had multiple knee surgery
