Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is excited about the possibilities of lining up next to first-round draft pick Nick Fairley for years to come, but he’s tempering his excitement with a dose of reality: They haven’t done anything yet.
Suh talked about Fairley in a promotional appearance today and said he’s expecting a big rookie season.
“It’s going to be exciting to be able to have a guy like that come out and be really a truly impact guy from the first couple days of him getting on the field,” Suh said.
But Suh then pointed out that all the Lions have right now is a defensive line depth chart that looks impressive.
“I think on paper we have one of the strongest defensive lines across the board,” Suh said. “It’s going to be exciting with that, but we’ve got to go out there and prove it. It may look good on paper, but you definitely want to get out there and make some noise.”
