Ndamukong Suh Voted AP NFL Defensive Rookie Of The Year

Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh picked up another award Friday, winning the Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.


Suh won 48 of the 50 votes, with New England cornerback Devin McCourty receiving the other two. Rams QB Sam Bradford won the offensive side of the award.


Suh was a stud on the Lions defensive line in his first year after being picked second overall in the 2010 NFL draft. Suh was voted to the Pro Bowl after finishing with 10 sacks and 49 tackles. He also had an interception and defended three passes.


Suh missed the Pro Bowl because he had shoulder surgery.
