Lions' Suh so good, he doesn't need to improve

It seems there is not much room for improvement for Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh as he moves from college to the NFL.

It appears he’s already there.

“He’s doing well. He started off doing well. There wasn’t a whole lot of room for any improvement. He’s a pretty good player. We just need to keep him on track,’’ coach Jim Schwartz said.

Suh, the second overall pick, does have to adjust to the Lions’ defensive scheme which is different from Nebraska’s.

“It’s much more of an attack scheme than he was used to in college where he was used to reading blocks. When the lights go on sometimes he has a tendency to go back to that. By the time we get to the minicamp session I would assume he’s got most of that old technique behind him,’’ Schwartz added.

Now all the Lions have to do is sign him. Suh said from the day he was drafted he has no plans to be a holdout and he has made that clear to his agent.

Wow. I'm going to add to this drivel. Suh needs to add 10 to 15 more pounds. Maybe against college kids he was a great player, but this is the NFL. To say Suh has no room for improvement is nonsense.
I think he will be the starting DT when the season opens up, and I think that was what Schwartz was commenting on.
So, if a player is starting for the Lions, they don't need to improve?

Think about that.

10 to 15 pounds the lions dont play a 3-4. He needs to maintain his wait he is a linear rusher now. And that was Schwartz saying little room for improvement he has all the intangibles like Schwartz said they need to keep him on track thats about it. He''ll do the rest
