Ndamukong Suh isn't just the best tackle in this year's draft, he's the best tackle in the history of college football. This isn't just my opinion though, and I wouldn't expect you to just take my opinion. So I've compiled a scoring system to grade each DT who has been nominated for the Heisman award in the past five years plus Gerald McCoy (just to show how McCoy stacks up).
DTs who were nominated for the Heisman include Steve Entman in '91, Warren Sapp in '94, Glenn Dorsey in 2007, and Ndamukong Suh in 2009.
Scoring goes as follows:
Tackle = 1 point
Tackle For Loss = 2 points
Sack = 2 points
Forced Fumble = 3 points
INT = 3 points
Pass Broken Up = 1 point
QB Hurry = 1 point
Blocked Kicks = 3 points
Fumble Recovery = 3 points
Entman in '91 scored 112 points and was fourth place finisher in the Heisman.
Gerald McCoy in 2009 scored 93 Points and was not in Heisman discussion.
Glen Dorsey in 2007 scored 116 points and was the ninth place finisher.
Warren Sapp scored 160 points in '94 and finished sixth in Heisman voting .
Ndamukong Suh scored 201 points and finished fourth in Heisman voting.
This is a no-brainer...
