ESPN’s eight NFL divisional bloggers recently ranked the top defensive players in the NFL, and the Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh narrowly missed the top 10 — finishing 11th behind Ed Reed. Though Suh received more overall votes than Reed, Tim Graham had Reed finishing No. 2.
The final results looked like this:
I’d say No. 11 is pretty good for a guy coming off his first year in the league. Suh made a big impression last year, but he’s still got a lot to prove if he wants to remain in the company of the athletes on this list. Do you think Suh deserved to be rated this high? Or do you think he has more to prove in the NFL?
