For many players, making the NFL Network’s Top 100 list just once in their careers is considered an honor. But to crack the Top 100 rankings in consecutive seasons, let alone in each of the eight years since it was first released, is a unique distinction reserved for only the league’s best.
Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is among that group, as one of just 11 players to hold the eight-year streak. He became the third Rams player named to the list this year — joining left tackle Andrew Whitworth (No. 87) and cornerback Marcus Peters (No. 79) at No. 61 overall.
Since entering the league as the second overall pick in the 2010 draft, the Nebraska product has been one of the NFL’s most dominant defensive forces. Through eight seasons, Suh has amassed 51.5 career sacks, five Pro Bowl appearances, and three First-Team All Pro designations.
He came to Los Angeles this offseason as a free agent, signing a one-year deal with the franchise. And in 2018, he will join defensive tackles Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers to form what is expected to be one of the most formidable defensive fronts in the league.
The NFL Network will continue to air its “Top 100 Players of 2018” series every week, leading up to the final 10 athletes on Monday, June 25. Episodes will air live on NFL Network every Monday at 5 p.m. PT.
