Timmy Jernigan plans to play like Ndamukong Suh in the NFL

The league office doesn’t always like the way Ndamukong Suh plays. But one draft prospect says he loves the way Suh plays, and plans to emulate it in the NFL.

Former Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan said today that Suh is the player he most looks up to.

I love Ndamukong Suh,” Jernigan said. “I love the way he plays the game, his mindset, the mentality, the nastiness he plays with. The guy’s lethal. You can tell that with the way he plays. That’s the way you have to play this position especially on that level. If you don’t play the game with an attitude, you really won’t make it too long playing inside.”

Jernigan is viewed by some observers as the best defensive tackle in this year’s draft. If he can play the game like Suh, he’ll be one of the best defensive tackles in the league. Especially if he can manage Suh’s impact without Suh’s penalties.

    This is my guy. I hope the Bears don’t get him.

    Little Timmy Jernigan thinks he can play with the big boys huh? We’ll see

    Ok as long you don’t play slow and fat like packer fans.

    Hes right. But thats easier said than done. Especially considering you gotta be willing to pay a certain price to play old school defense in this league. Literally.

    Welcome to Chicago, we need your attitude and run stuffing ability.

    DT or Safety? The Bears biggest question. Timmy could be the guy.

    If the Giants 0-line wasn’t such a disgusting train wreck I’d really like this guy at #12.

    Whoever gets Jernigan will get the steal of the early first round. Many will be fooled by his selflessness in college to play his role in that scheme to think he is not as good as he is. This guy really can do it all. He was the heart and soul of that FSU defense since it was garbage at the end of the Bowden era over any other lineman that they had, and they had a few good ones drafted recently.

    Good for him, a kid who gets it.

    Be mean, be passionate but don’t be stupid, 15 yarders do not help you win.

  13. johnelwayishorsefaced says: Feb 22, 2014 4:52 PM

    Queue the idiotic comments like “so he plans on stomping people” or whatever. Get some new material jackwagons

  14. officialgame says: Feb 22, 2014 5:17 PM

    Got to love his attitude. Nothing wrong with arriving at the scene in a bad mood wanting to inflect pain.

  15. seatownballers says: Feb 22, 2014 5:38 PM

    I like him. I bet he really helps a team

  16. kev86 says: Feb 22, 2014 5:48 PM

    What would Sapp say if drafted by Bucs?

  17. kerzondax says: Feb 22, 2014 6:34 PM

    He plans on being a bust?

  18. ohiobears says: Feb 22, 2014 6:51 PM

    I sure hope he goes to Chicago

  19. gochargersgo says: Feb 22, 2014 7:00 PM

    Matt Schaub is thankful he doesn’t start anymore!!!

  20. chat1776 says: Feb 22, 2014 7:02 PM

    ———————————————————————————————————————————— or as long as he doesn’t run around with a blonde wigg on and wearing 3 different colored brett favre jersey’s. (jets, packers, and vikings) viking’s fans are the only fan base that can hate an opposing rival player for 15 years and love him even after he fails to win them a superbowl. lmao

    Jernigan and Nix are overrated and a waste of money. They are aren’t going to be in shape come the fourth quarter of a big game they’ll be asking for their back-up to play for them. Just watch the last two national title games.

  23. ariani1985 says: Feb 22, 2014 7:34 PM

    If he is stuck in green Bay his whole life he will eat himself.

  24. canetic says: Feb 22, 2014 7:35 PM

    Didn’t Jernigan miss most of the Championship game gasping for breath on the sideline?

  25. wabbitslayer says: Feb 22, 2014 7:59 PM

    This is good news, now his agent can go ahead and negotiate all the fines upfront.

  26. lks311 says: Feb 22, 2014 8:15 PM

    Ndamukong Suh. The player every other team’s fans hate…and would love to have on their team.

  27. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Feb 22, 2014 8:35 PM

    Whooooooooooooooooooo !

  28. fnc111 says: Feb 22, 2014 8:42 PM

    canetic,

    Yes. It was embarrassing watching him become a spectator during the title game. Same with Nix the year before.

  29. bearshaterseverywhere says: Feb 22, 2014 8:59 PM

    I don’t care for him, but Sherman said it right. If you want use Suh as your comparison to sell yourself, you better back that up or the fan base of the team you get drafted by will tear you up….

  30. usdcoyotesfan says: Feb 23, 2014 1:37 AM

    Then get used to being light in the wallet.

  31. therealraider says: Feb 23, 2014 4:19 AM

    Any man that goes by “Timmy” isn’t in Ndamukong Suh’s category.
