Prince Amukamara Gets NFL Combine Advice From Ndamukong Suh

The Detroit Lions have added a few former Nebraska Cornhuskers to their roster in the last year. Kyle Vanden Bosch signed with the Lions during free agency, joining Dominic Raiola as the former Cornhuskers on the roster. In April, the Lions drafted Ndamukong Suh, who became the third former Nebraska player to join the team. Finally, defensive end Barry Turner, a rookie who played with Suh at Nebraska, was claimed off waivers last December by the Lions.

If things work out, it's possible the Lions could add yet another former Nebraska player (and former teammate of Suh), as cornerback Prince Amukamara is someone they might target if he's available come pick No. 13. If it were up to Amukamara, he would probably prefer to go somewhere in the top ten, but it wouldn't be a bad consolation prize to end up in Detroit with Suh.

Regardless of what happens, Amukamara wants to get his stock to rise in the coming weeks to not only end up in the top ten, but perhaps move up a few spots as well. That is why he got some advice from Suh about how to plan for the NFL Combine, which gets started with check-ins today in Indianapolis.

Suh went through all of the drills last year at the combine despite the fact that his stock was already about as high as it gets. His thinking was that he had nothing to hide, so he went ahead and showed off his talents and athleticism to scouts from around the league. The decision proved to be a good one, as he did in fact have nothing to hide, and his advice to Amukamara is to do the same thing. As a result, Amukamara plans on going through all of the drills and not skipping particular ones like some players. His attitude is that he isn't unsure about any of the drills, so he might as well go through all of them just like Suh did. Considering how well things worked out for Suh, I'd say that's pretty good advice.
