“I have no life,” he said. “Other than I love football.”
Ndamukong Suh still resents the fact that Big 12 rival Sam Bradford was picked ahead of him during the 2010 NFL draft.

He said his ability to recall these events is actually due to a process he’s “always revisiting.”
“It’s not like I’m just recalling it and that’s the only time you’ve ever done it from,” he said. “These are things that we as coaches always go back through. So, it’s kind of something that you’re always revisiting, especially when it’s relevant plays.”
