After last week's episode of NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2012," Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was featured in a preview for the next installment of the series. At the time, I didn't think he'd actually be revealed as being ranked somewhere between 31st and 40th on the list (the spots being revealed this week) simply because going into this series, the expectation was for him to not be ranked at all.
As it turns out, Suh will indeed be featured on this week's show, according to Tim Twentyman.
Expect Ndamukong Suh to be revealed on NFL Network’s The Top 100 Players of 2012 on Wednesday at 8 p.m. He's ranked between #40-31— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) June 4, 2012
Last year, Suh was ranked 51st in this series. After having a down season statistically and dealing with a suspension, most people (myself included) figured he'd drop. After not being revealed in the first 50 spots, it seemed that Suh had dropped out of the top 100 altogether. Instead, he actually moved up, lending credence to the notion that although his numbers weren't as good, Suh's play was still quite strong in 2011.
