2011 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills Take Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama, at No. 3
Buffalo Bills Bolster Their Defense Early In The 2011 NFL Draft
With the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Buffalo Bills take a defensive tackle that that is best described as massive, agile and powerful.
Marcell Dareus out of Alabama makes a lot of sense at the No. 3 pick for the Bills because he is a versatile pass-rusher that can work in either the 3-4 or 4-3 scheme in the NFL.
Earning defensive MVP honors in the 2009 BCS National Championship game, Dareus has seen his draft stock skyrocket in recent weeks due to an impressive pro day when he displayed his run-blocking abilities.
Versatile enough to play anywhere on the defensive line, Dareus is one of the top lineman in the draft and is a safe pick for the flexible Bills’ defense.
Leading the 2010 Alabama squad with 6.5 sacks, Dareus is nothing less than a top-five pick and is taken here at No. 3.
