Career NFL statistics
Lee Ernest Suggs, Jr. (born August 11, 1980) is a former American football running back in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He played college football at Virginia Tech. He holds the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision records for most games scoring a touchdown in a single season (14 games in 2002), and most consecutive games scoring a touchdown (27 consecutive games, from Sept. 2, 2000 through Dec. 31, 2002; 57 touchdowns).
Suggs attended high school at William Fleming High School. During his 1998 senior year in high school, he rushed for 2,918 yards and 30 touchdowns, capping a prolific high school career and helping boost his ranking among running backs to fourth in the state and 19th in the nation, according to the SuperPrep scouting organization.
Suggs was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 18th pick in the fourth round and 115th overall of the 2003 NFL Draft. He was unable to play a full season due to several injuries as well as the acquisition of Reuben Droughns. On Monday, August 14, 2006, Suggs was traded to the New York Jets for defensive back Derrick Strait, but the trade was voided when Suggs failed his physical, and subsequently returned to the Browns. He was then subsequently cut by the Browns.
Suggs was claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins on September 3, 2006. He was released by the Dolphins on October 10, 2006.
Suggs is currently the quarterbacks coach for Division III Oberlin College. His coaching career began at Oberlin in 2008 as running backs coach.
In addition to coaching football at Oberlin College, in his spare time, Neal coaches football as well as track and field to aspiring athletes in North East Ohio.
