Detroit Lion’s nose tackle Ndamukong Suh is entering his third year in the NFL after being chosen 1st overall by the team. After a veteran exodus on the defensive side this offseason, the team is expecting Suh to take more of a leadership role.
Chris McCosky recently wrote about the team’s desire to see Suh as a leader and why he might not be the leader they desire.
I would caution against expecting Suh to be a leader like Vanden Bosch or Williams. I would caution against trying to force Suh into being something he’s not. He’s not going to be that rah-rah type guy. He’s not going to preside over a team meeting. He’s not going to be the guy who invites his teammates over to his place for a cookout.
“No, he’s a quiet guy, you know how Suh is,” Tulloch said. “But I will say this, he’s very dominant. I can’t get mad at him. He can be as quiet as he wants. He’s probably the most dominant defensive tackle I’ve ever been around.”
