Top draft prospects often decline to work out at the NFL scouting combine, or go through only a couple of drills, reasoning that a bad performance can hurt them more than a good performance can help them.
Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is not taking that approach.
Len Pasquarelli of ESPN.com quotes Suh’s agent as saying he will participate in all of the workouts at the combine, which starts next week in Indianapolis.
“He’s in the best shape of his life and he wants to [demonstrate] that to people,” said agent Roosevelt Barnes. “There’s no reason [not to work out]. . . . He’s ready for it all.”
Suh and Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy are generally regarded as the two best prospects in this year’s draft.
