Lions Still Trying to Get Suh and Best in Camp on Time

The Lions remain hopeful and are still trying to do their best to get first-round draft picks Ndamukong Suh and Jahvid Best in camp on time:

The Lions are still working to sign first-round draft picks Ndamukong Suh (No. 2 overall) and Jahvid Best (No. 30) in time for the opening of training camp this week, but Suh runs a greater risk of falling behind if he misses time in camp. Best is a running back, and the Lions have used him in many roles from receiver to punt returner. But Best’s position is not considered as technically difficult as Suh’s defensive tackle position. “I think the running back can afford to miss more time than the defensive lineman can because the running back position is probably – from a technical standpoint – one of the easiest to come in and play,” said Gil Brandt, Dallas’ vice president of player personnel in 1960-89. “In the case of Suh, every day that he misses – and not only Suh’s case, but Best’s case also – every day that they miss sets them back.”
