#NFLRank: Ndamukong Suh is No. 16
By Kevin Seifert
Let's pick up ESPN's #NFLRank project now that it includes another member of the Detroit Lions. As you recall, the exercise was to rank the NFL's top 100 offensive and top 100 defensive players.
16. Ndamukong Suh
Stats & Info: Since his rookie season in 2010, Suh has 19.0 sacks when lined up as an interior defensive lineman. Only Geno Atkins has more (21.0).
Seifert comment: Suh has the ability to be a top-5 player in the league. As he enters what amounts to a contract year, and with a healthy Nick Fairley playing alongside him, there is every reason to expect Suh to play like one this season.
The Lions' showing to date:
94. Quarterback Matthew Stafford
76. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley
