2010 NFL Draft: Lions Select Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh with the Second Pick

The Detroit Lions just made it official: Ndamukong Suh is the second overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft and the newest member of the Lions.  Suh, a defensive tackle from Nebraska, was the most dominant defensive player in college football in 2009 and is yet another new face that will help bolster Detroit's defensive line.  He joins fellow Nebraska Cornhusker Kyle Vanden Bosch and former Cleveland Brown Corey Williams as offseason additions that will hopefully help the Lions' defensive line become one of the best in the league.

With the second overall pick out of the way, the Lions are done for today barring a trade.  They will go back on the clock tomorrow with the 34th overall pick, but again, that is only if there isn't a trade.  Since you should always expect the unexpected with the draft, I'm not closing the book on this being the Lions' only pick just because you never know what can happen.

Welcome to Detroit, Ndamukong Suh.  As Rich Eisen said, Ford Field is ready to become the "House of Spears."
