    Alot of people have Dareus rated as the #1 DT prospect, that is surprising. I think he'll be a solid 3-4 DE, but I see him as a mid 1st (10-15 range). But with 7 out of 10 teams in the Top 10 run a 3-4, he'll def go Top 10.

    I like guys like Nevis and Clayborn WAY more than Dareus and I can't fathom why anyone wouldn't.

    Yes, he did have a good day at the combine.
    But....if he got his reputation from these 2 plays thats not really saying much. Alabama had a top ranked defense, put Fairley or any of the other top ranked DT's in this draft, and I bet they make more plays, tackles, sacks, etc.

    "He's big and ties up inside running lanes, allowing others to rack up tackles. That's really ALL he's done "
    The NFL pays a lot of money for players to do just this!

    Yea I realize that, but for the money he'll be getting, I need more from him to warrant that kind of money from my favorite team.

    Most people don't have their brains in their arses. Dareus out weighs Nevis by 30 lbs and Clayborn was a non impact player at Iowa last year. A DE with only 3.5 sacks and 7 TKL? Are you kidding?

    Poor analysis as usual. No excuse me no analysis.

    Not an endorsement for the 3-4 then is it? The value oif Dareus as a prospect is that he can play 3-4 end, 3-4 NT and 4-3 DT. He can play anywhere you need a big guy who can move well. Everybody would like to have a guy like that.

    Then it's even worse. You have no idea what you're looking at.


    Nevis is as undersized as they get for DT. That's what you want? And, Clayborn was diagnosed with Erb's Palsy, his right arm is undersized.

    What about this?

    Dareus is a beast. He played the entire season on a high ankle sprain. During the National Championship season, he recorded 6 sacks as a back-up 3-4 end.

    Idk if you guys know this but the job of a 3-4 end isn't typically to get sacks.
