Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh -- The Lions found their franchise quarterback last year in Matthew Stafford, the No. 1 overall pick. They found the lynchpin of their defense this year in Suh, the No. 2 overall pick. After years of making poor picks in the top 10, the Lions seem to have nailed it for the second straight draft, landing the most dominant player in college football. With two other new acquisitions -- Williams and end Kyle Vanden Bosch -- Suh turns the defensive line from a weakness into a strength.
A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 1/2 -- Ndamukong Suh, DT, 6-4, 307, Nebraska: Widely considered the best player in the draft, Suh can stop the run and rush the passer. The Lions added a difference-maker in the middle of a defense that has ranked last three years in a row. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Ndamukong Suh News
09/19/16 - DT Ndamukong Suh was a man at New England on Sunday, amassing a game-high 12 tackles. Suh, frequently double-teamed, was so good that New England chose to run away from him the entire fourth quarter when it was trying to run the ball to kill the clock. The Patriots had 11 running plays in the fourth quarter and each one either went up the middle or to the offense's left side.
09/14/16 - DT Ndamukong Suh said he thought the defensive line did OK against Seattle but not great. "I think it is way too early to predict anything," Suh said when asked if the defensive line proved anything. "In my opinion, we did a lot of good things. I think we didn't close out the game like we wanted to, especially up front when we had the opportunity to (do so) in the two-minute, four-minute drive. At the end of the day, it's a long, long season. We have a lot more things to prove and get done."
09/12/16 - DT Ndamukong Suh (four tackles, including one for loss, 1.0 sack, one pass defended) did a good job controlling the line of scrimmage. Suh was Miami's most effective defensive lineman and might have been its most effective defensive player.
09/07/16 - DT Ndamukong Suh said the key for Miami's defense this week is respecting, but not fearing, Seattle's offense. "(Quarterback) Russell Wilson, he has great feet," Suh said. "He can run the ball and be a threat in that respect - so just be aware of it. I would never be scared of it or anything of that nature, but just be aware of it and cognizant and just go out there and play your game."
08/14/16 - DE Ndamukong Suh didn't play against the New York Giants as coach Adam Gase opted to give him a day of rest. Suh practiced full speed Sunday. Gase said he expects starters on both sides of the ball to play a significant amount of time Friday at Dallas.
