A recent study by the Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research determined that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is the least-appealing player in the NFL. According to the poll, Suh appeals to only 19 percent of those asked.

Suh, whose Lions host the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday, has developed a sour reputation because of his questionable on-field antics.

It has been nearly a year since Suh greatly damaged his reputation as a dirty player by stepping on an opposing players' face last Thanksgiving. The No. 2 overall pick's appeal percentage is far below who Forbes labeled as "diva" receivers such as Randy Moss and Santonio Holmes. They received 24 percent and 28 percent ratings, respectively.

Pittsburgh Steelers' safety Troy Polumalu was rated as the most likable NFL player with a 63 percent appeal rating. Offensive players trended toward the top of the list, as Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers all came in at 58 percent or higher.
