ESPN.com's NFL Nation collected anonymous player surveys from all 32 teams during the season, including the Miami Dolphins. The first of several results was posted on Thursday for the most feared player in the league.
Suh is an intimidating presence on Detroit's defense. He also has a mean streak, which included several instances in which he made questionable plays after the whistle. That impacted his reputation as a dirty player. Johnson is feared due to his playmaking ability.
Here are the top vote-getters for the NFL's most-feared player:
Ndamukong Suh: 61 (19 percent)
Calvin Johnson: 58 (18.1 percent)
J.J. Watt: 24 (7.5 percent)
Patrick Willis: 23 (7.2 percent)
Peyton Manning: 21 (6.6 percent)
James Harrison: 18 (5.6 percent)
Adrian Peterson: 16 (5 percent)
No Dolphins player made the cut.
