Buffalo "Thrilled" Denver Passed on Dareus

Well, the brass at One Bills Drive is certainly happy with their selection of Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus with the #3 pick in the NFL Draft.

“It’s like Christmas, opening presents,” Buffalo GM Buddy Nix said. “We really didn’t think he’d be there, but we’re excited about having him.”

Nix said Dareus “is about as close as it gets” to a safe draft pick in the NFL.

Buffalo currently envisions Dareus as a defensive end in the 3-4 alignment, but love his versatility. That’ll be important, because I think Buffalo will flip from 3-4 to 4-3 (and 3-4 over) quite a bit this coming season.
