ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Ndamukong Suh says he wants to lead the Detroit Lions with his actions and mouth.
Suh seems to be doing that, going to the front of the line for drills and shouting words of encouragement to his fellow defensive linemen.
In Suh's first three seasons, he deferred leadership roles to veterans Kyle Vanden Bosch, Corey Williams and Cliff Avril. Those three defensive linemen are gone, leaving Suh with a chance to lead.
Detroit defensive end Willie Young has seen Suh take advantage of the opportunity during this week's minicamp.
Suh says his path to leadership at Nebraska followed a similar path. He spoke up rarely in his first two years before becoming a vocal leader as a junior and senior for the Cornhuskers.
