Ndamukong Suh: Detroit Lions Select Suh #2 Overall in 2010 NFL Draft

The Detroit Lions selected our much beloved Ndamukong Suh as the second overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft last night, going one pick after Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford went to the St. Louis Rams. Gerald McCoy was selected as third, going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, followed by yet another Big 12 player, Trent Williams of Oklahoma.

It was the first time since 1967 that the first four players came from the same conference. It sounds great for the Big 12, but I've never been an advocate of using the NFL as a measure of success in college football. On the other hand, if this happened to the SEC, they'd be screaming about it all over the place, having parties and starting riots, so start the "Big 12" chants already. 

Suh will join Huskers defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, center Dominic Raiola and safety Daniel Bullocks on a team that's been.... pretty horrid throughout it's existence. As Brian Christopherson points out, they're 33-111 over the last nine seasons and went 0-16 in 2008. One could hope that things turn around for them but that leads to bittersweet if you happen to already be a fan of Minnesota, Green Bay or Chicago. Suh will wear #90 for the Lions as #93 is already taken - by Vanden Bosch. 

I am glad he went to the Detroit Lions as the NFL Norris division contains the set of teams that I've watched throughout my life. Despite the fact that he'll be going up against my Packers, at least I'll get to see him play quite a bit, and that begs the question - how many Nebraska football fans just became Detroit Lions fans????

Another question that begs to be asked - does Brett Favre's career end on September 26th????
