NDAMUKONG SUH. C. <p>Suh is a difficult player to work out. On the one hand he is the highest paid non-quarterback in the NFL and big things are therefore expected of him, on the other there is only so much one player can do while being blocked by one, two or sometimes three linemen. Suh’s gargantuan contract further highlighted his ability and offensive coordinators have reacted accordingly by using as many blockers to nullify his impact.</p> <p>The 320-pound defensive lineman recorded just 11 combined tackles in the first five games, which did not exactly live up to the billing. Suh has woken up since Campbell took the leash off the defense though, and has 21 combined tackles – three of which were for a loss in the win over the Eagles – and four sacks in the last four games. He has stepped up and filled the leading role left vacant by Cameron Wake, who tore his Achilles against the Patriots.</p> <p>Although Suh’s production will have to continue to increase to convince fans in Miami they are getting their money’s worth, if he were to somehow lead the team to the playoffs I’m sure the $114 million price tag would become a distant memory.</p>.
