It can be argued that Suh was the best player in the draft, but he doesn't get a QB premium and he wasn't the No. 1 pick. If Suh's representatives don't agree to slotting their client, we could be looking out a significant holdout. The Lions would be insane to give Suh more than Bradford.
Now that is a dick move. Suh should put an end to that request. 6 years, $72m with 45 guaranteed is more than any football player deserves.
