If you're a Detroit Lions fan, there is excitement about the organization going in a positive direction.

The past few drafts show there is a change in direction as the franchise looks to climb out from the bottom of the league.

In the 2010 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions took what seemed to be the likely selection in Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle out of Nebraska.

Suh showed his dominance in his senior season of college and was highly regarded as one of the best players in college football.

However, Suh isn't expected to sign anytime with the Lions anytime soon.

According to the Grand Island Independent (a Nebraska newspaper), sources say Suh isn't expected to sign until sometime during training camp.

However, Suh is not expected to hold out and has stated he plans on participating in all the upcoming workouts.

The biggest red flag is his agent, Eugene Parker, who is the agent for Michael Crabtree.

Last year, Crabtree held out until the middle of the season, where he then agreed to a deal.
