Ndamukong Suh Still Does Not Consider Himself Among The Best Defensive Tackles

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is not the best player at his position, according to his own analysis. Suh made a Thursday morning appearance on KTAR in Phoenix in which he discussed the matter and just how far he has to go to consider himself among the best at his position.

"I think I have a lot of work ahead of myself to even be considered in that group, but I'm definitely not going to hold myself down in any means in terms of having an opportunity to be up there with some of the greats," Suh said. "One of them that I definitely consider a top defensive tackle is Haloti Ngata. He's consistently doing it year-in and year-out and I look to kind of follow in those footsteps."

As far as getting better, Suh noted the importance of helping his teammates.

"There's a lot of things that I can improve," Suh said. "There's other ways from stats to helping my other teammates produce that I can get better at. Being able to go in and watch film when I was back in Detroit early last week, I saw some mistakes that I had and I look forward to correcting them."

Suh is in Phoenix this week serving as the Grand Marshal for the Subway Fresh Fit 500, part of the NASCAR Sprint Series.
