All eyes will be on Lions' DT Suh at camp

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will undoubtedly be one of the most watched Lions in training camp. The second overall pick in the draft comes in with huge expectations.

During OTAs and minicamp he didn’t seem to do anything to make the Lions think they had made the wrong decision.

After just a couple OTA sessions, coach Jim Schwartz laughed when asked if Suh had shown improvement. He was so good to begin with, there wasn’t much to improve on.

Still he has to get used to the defensive scheme which is different from what he played at Nebraska. He’s smart which is another reason he was the second overall pick, so Schwartz expects he’ll be fully acclimated when training camp starts.

He’s so big and takes up so much room on the defensive line, Suh is hard not to watch.

Suh has said all along he plans to be at camp from the start. We'll see.

For some players, training camp is a way to get on the 54-man roster. For Suh, it’s to get used to the NFL where he is expected to shine. It's critical he is there from Day One.
