Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been pretty steady in the eyes of the NFL Network.
The network revealed Nos. 31 to 40 in its top 100 players for 2014 on Wednesday night, and Suh checked in at No. 40 — exactly where he was in the network’s rankings entering the 2013, and two spots removed from his 2012 rankings, when he was No. 38.
He was No. 51 in 2011.
Suh is coming off a season in which he had 49 tackles (second most in his career) and 5˝ sacks. He is the fourth Lions player to make the rankings so far, joining quarterback Matthew Stafford (No. 100), running back Reggie Bush (No. 85), and linebacker DeAndre Levy (No. 59).
The NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2014 airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
