2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Marcell Dareus

  • Strength, size and speed teams look for
  • Bull rusher up the middle
  • Collapses the pocket
  • Handles double teams
  • Able to shed blockers
  • Reacts well to snap with quick first step
  • Extremely versatile, position and scheme
  • Agile and moves well laterally
  • Anchor to disrupt the run and occupy blockers
  • Disciplined when it comes to containment

  • Limited starting experience
  • Arm length
  • Needs to prove he can hold up in feature role
  • Not going to make many tackles on his own
  • Tendency to get too upright
  • Suspended for taking benefits from an agent

    Summary: Marcell Dareus might wind up being the best defensive lineman in a draft crop littered with top talent. Coming out of Nick Saban's 3-4 defense, he is ready for the NFL although he only started four games in 2009 and was suspended for two in 2010 so he is light on experience. His family life has been hard and teams will have to be sure he is still motivated to work hard after getting paid. Assuming he clears that hurdle, teams can either use him as a 3-4 end or possibly a nose tackle.
