3. Ndamukong Suh

When Ndamukong Suh was first released by the Miami Dolphins this offseason, Los Angeles seemed like a long shot at landing the defensive superstar, mainly because of the hefty price tag that would come as a result of him coming on board. As Rams fans know, the team was able to convince Suh to join the defense on a one-year deal, and if all goes according to plan, this defensive line is going to cause all sorts of problems for opposing quarterbacks.

Los Angeles was already considered a dangerous defensive line from the presence of Donald, but seeing him team up with Suh is going to take this unit to a whole new level in 2018. There’s a reason why Suh has been considered one of the most feared defensive players in the NFL over the years when looking at some of the problems he’s caused on defense for opponents, and what’s going to be even more exciting is seeing him work with Wade Phillips, one of the best at what he does, throughout the 2018 season.

Who knows, if all goes smoothly for Suh during his first year in Los Angeles, maybe it will lead to an even better deal down the road. But for now, the main focus for Suh is on starting the new season off right with a strong performance on Monday in Oakland.
