Before the NFL draft, Suh signed with Maximum Sports Management and agent Roosevelt Barnes. This caused moderate concern for many teams who were hoping to draft him, as this was the same agent who represented [[Michael Crabtree]]. Crabtree was the longest [[2009 NFL Draft]] first round contract hold out, waiting over six weeks into the NFL season before signing with the [[San Francisco 49ers]]. Crabtree had even threatened to re-enter the [[2010 NFL Draft]].
