Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has a reputation around the NFL for massive hits on quarterbacks and occasionally aggressive behavior on the field. That likely explains why, in a recent ESPN poll of 82 NFL players, Suh was voted the "last guy in the league you would ever want to get into a fistfight with." 

Suh received 18 percent of the vote. Coming in second was Houston Texans All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, with 11 percent of the vote. San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis and Carolina Panthers running back Mike Tolbert rounded out the top four of the list.

Last year Suh started all 16 games, recorded 5.5 sacks and was named to the All-Pro first team. A year ago, he was voted the "most feared" player in the NFL in a separate ESPN poll
