No. 2 Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (2005-2009)
Say, you know this guy, right? We’re not going to belabor the existence of Suh on this list after we’ve written thousands of words about him in the last two years. The numbers - 215 tackles, 57 tackles for loss, 24 sacks, 15 pass breakups, 4 interceptions, 2 defensive touchdowns - speak for themselves. The awards - Lombardi, Nagurski, Outland, Bednarik - do, too. The standout plays. The performance vs. Texas in the Big 12 Championship. His mere presence, which opened up Jared Crick and Ty Steinkuhler, in different years, for monster seasons.
The ink isn’t dry on Suh’s career at NU. But you know he’s worthy of No. 2 on our list. We know it. Nebraska football knows it. Suuuuuuuuuh!
