Brian Baldinger Heaps The Praise On Ndamukong Suh

Brian Baldinger wrote an article for NFL.com about how great Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was last season and how much promise he has going forward. Baldinger remarked on how quickly Suh transitioned from the college level to the pro level without seeing the level of his play drop off at all. As Baldinger says, usually it takes time for players to adjust from college to the NFL, but that wasn't the case for Suh, whose immediate dominance was compared to the way Haloti Ngata came into the NFL.

Baldinger went on to say that Suh is "a perfect fit for the 4-3 defense" because he plays the defensive tackle position so well. His sack numbers are impressive, but there's much more to his game than that.

Most people will look at Suh’s 10.0 sacks, which is great, because that’s a difficult number to achieve. But Suh is so much more — and so much better — than just sacks.  He plays the run and plays with violence. He chases plays down from behind. His recognition of plays is unbelievable considering most defensive linemen take a year to figure out the NFL game.

Perhaps the best line of all is this: "He really has no weaknesses in his game." Now that is a big-time compliment.
