It was a season that caught the attention of everyone in college football and a bunch of NFL scouts, too. Ndamukong Suh's 2009 season at Nebraska was so impressive, it led to Suh being a rare Heisman Trophy finalist as a defensive player.
The accolades along with his skill turned him into the No. 2 player selected in the 2010 draft by the Detroit Lions. Though he is now in a contract year with the Lions entering his fifth season, his 2009 college season remains one of the more impressive in history.
ESPN's college reporters deemed it one of the 10 best defensive college football seasons in history -- and only one of two on the list by a defensive tackle.
