Suh Wouldn’t Have Minded Playing in Seattle

When asked by one of the attendees of his youth football camp which team he hoped would select him in the 2010 NFL Draft, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh admitted that remaining in the Pacific Northwest would have been fine with him, reports Mike Brudenell of the Detroit Free Press.

“That’s a tough question — an excellent question,” said Suh, who grew up in Portland, Oregon. “I’d have liked to be close to my family, so the Seattle (Seahawks) would have been good. But I’m very happy to be where I’m at. I’m definitely glad the Lions took me, and the other teams are going to pay for it.”

The Lions used the second overall pick on Suh, who earned Pro Bowl, All-Pro, and NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors after posting 67 tackles, 10 quarterback sacks, and an interception last season.

Seattle had the sixth overall pick, which they used on Oklahoma State left tackle Russell Okung.
