Marcell Dareus

School: Alabama
Position: DT
Bio: Awarded all-Conference an All-American honors last season after becoming a full-time starter and totaling 34/11/4.5 while breaking up four passes. Missed one game because of a suspension and another due to injury. Sophomore totals included 33/9/6.5, when he started four games.
Positive: Game-impacting defensive line prospect who can play a variety of positions up front. Athletic, fluid moving in all directions of the field, and quickly alters his angle of attack. Plays with great leverage and pad level, gets his hands up, and effectively uses them to protect himself. Displays an inside move, has the ability to pursue the action laterally, and has a strong lower body. Knocks blockers off the ball, runs over opponents, and viciously attacks ball carriers. Collapses the pocket and gets pressure up the field. Has better-than-average instincts and stays with assignments. Does more than pin his ears back and rush up the field and consistently makes positive plays.
Negative: Lacks elite first-step quickness. Has not always played with a great motor.
Analysis: Since breaking onto the scene in 2009, Dareus has been one of the nation's top impact players. He has the size and style to be used as a conventional defensive tackle or line up as a two-gap end in a 3-4 alignment. Dareus comes with great upside and should only get better if he learns to do the little things well and focuses on football.
