2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
Dareus notched 11.0 total sacks the last two seasons, while not being known for his pass-rushing skills, and is a disruptive force.
Expected draft placement
Dareus has the potential to be special in the NFL. His skill set is best used as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 system, but 3-4 teams will consider him as a five-technique end.
With a high first-round grade, Dareus could draw attention from the Carolina Panthers (No. 1), Denver Broncos (No. 2), Buffalo Bills (No. 3), Cleveland Browns (No. 6), San Francisco 49ers (No. 7), Dallas Cowboys (No. 9) and Washington Redskins (No. 10). The Panthers, Broncos and Bills seem like the most likely landing spots at this time.
