Lions’ Suh voted as last person NFL players want to fight

Surprise, surprise: The NFL’s most feared player is also the one who’d draw the least confrontation.

In an ESPN Confidential survey, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was voted the last person in the league that NFL players would want to get into a fistfight with.

Suh received 18 percent of the vote from 82 players polled. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt finished second, with 11 percent. 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis (eight percent) and Panthers running back Mike Tolbert (six percent) also made the cut.

The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh has shown to be an absolute physical specimen, comprised of equal parts power and athleticism. His attributes have helped him become one of the most dominant big men in the game, capable of rushing the passer and stuffing the run.

And let’s not forget about his mean streak …

Suh’s (possibly intimidated) peers made the right call.
