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
11/23/15 - DT Ndamukong Suh had seven tackles against Dallas Sunday, which follows a season-best eight-tackle game against Philadelphia.
And considering on Sunday Suh was going against Dallas All Pro right guard Zack Martin, it might have been his best game of the season. Miami decided to move Suh around on Sunday, having him play his usual left defensive tackle as well as left defensive end and right defensive end.
11/15/15 - DT Ndamukong Suh didn't get off to a great start with the Dolphins after leaving Detroit to sign a free-agent contract with Miami, but he's come on the last three games and he was a force against the Eagles. He finished with eight tackles, a sack and three tackles for losses, plus the Eagles were called for holding twice against him. "When you get in games like this and it's a dog fight, your impact players, you need them to step up and make impact plays. And (Suh) stepped up."
11/09/15 - DT Ndamukong Suh had one of his best games of the season with three tackles, including a sack, and a quarterback hit. Suh might have been robbed of a second sack. He had Bills QB Tyrod Taylor in his grasp but, perhaps mindful of previous fines for rough play, opted not to fling him to the ground. Taylor got rid of the ball and it was ruled an incomplete pass. Suh protested the call to referees and said after the game it should have been a sack.
11/04/15 - DT Ndamukong Suh (19 tackles, two sacks) must be more disruptive against the run and pass with DE Cam Wake (Achilles) sidelined for the season. Suh has had a couple of disruptive games, but overall he's been docile relative to what he's showed in his previous five NFL seasons.
On a related note, it'll be interesting to see whether the Dolphins move Suh more frequently to have him next to RDE Olivier Vernon. One of the staples of the front four previously was having Suh and Wake on the same side.
10/31/15 - DT Ndamukong Suh ended with two tackles and one quarterback hit against New England, but he had a decent game overall. The problem is Suh wasn't an impact player, and that's been the case in probably five of the Dolphins' seven games this season.
