Losing a dominant player like Ndamukong Suh hurts and after that it seems like Detroit just gave the rest of their defensive line away.

The team did make a smart move by trading for former Pro-Bowler, Haloti Ngata and adding Tyrunn Walker was an okay move but nobody knows what Walker can do.

A constant name that has been thrown around is defensive tackle Jordan Phillips out of Oklahoma. Phillips is a big guy, 6’5 329 lbs and could serve as another run stuffer next to Ngata and help slow down some of the power backs in the NFC North.

Other names that have been thrown out are Malcom Brown out of Texas and Eddie Goldman out of Florida State.
