Shock and awe.
While the No. 1 pick doesn’t seem to need justification, some would disagree.
The first defensive player to be named 2009 Associated Press College Player of the Year, Suh ripped through double-teams like rice paper on his way to a season that made every coach and analyst in the country stand up and take notice.
He finished his Cornhusker career with 215 TKL, 57 TFL, 24 SCK, 3 FF, 1 FR, 6 BK, 4 INT and 38 QBH.
If that stat line isn’t enough to impress, perhaps the wheelbarrow that Suh needed as he walked the award circuit would be.
Short of winning the Heisman and handing out participant trophies, Suh swiftly became the most decorated defensive players in college football history and easily the most in Nebraska history.
He was named a unanimous First-Team All-American (1 of 12).
Besides, how bad can a guy who donates $2.6 million to his alma mater before being drafted be?
