Suh comes up big early

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Professional scouts tell me that Ndamukong Suh could be the best defensive player available in the 2010 NFL draft.

Suh showed that promise when he slung Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert down like a rag doll as he tried to scramble and forced a fumble that was recovered by Nebraska's Jared Crick.

Gabbert limped to the sidelines, but appears ready to return with his offensive unit. Just to make sure, Missouri backup quarterback Jimmy Costello was warming up on the sidelines.

This is one of those early momentum plays. And Suh has already showed his importance on that play.

He's going to be making a lot of money playing on Sundays pretty soon.
