Ndamukong Suh (/ɨnˈdɑːməkɨn ˈsuː/ in-DOM-ə-kin SOO, born January 6, 1987) is an American football defensive tackle for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Detroit Lions second overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at Nebraska, where he earned All-American honors.
As a college senior, Suh became one of the most decorated players in college football history. He won numerous awards including the Associated Press College Football Player of the Year Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Chuck Bednarik Award, Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy, and was recognized as a unanimous All-American.
Suh has been criticized for his aggressive style of play and has been fined a total of $420,669 by the NFL for seven player-safety violations, and suspended once (for two games), resulting in the loss of $165,294 in pay. Despite issues with sportsmanship, Suh is often considered one of the most dominant defensive tackles in the NFL.
