Dareus ues great technique against run blocks and shows the ability to shed blocks easily and bring down the ballcarrier. Marcell is the best run-stopping defensive tackle in this years draft. He’s able to maintain position against offensive tackles run block, explodes to the outside to tackle the runningback before he can turn the corner and get past the line of scrimmage and is a smart and instinctive player who consistently reads and reacts to plays and does not get fooled by fakes or misdirection plays. He has the instincts and awareness to succeed at the next level. He has the talent to be a disruptive passrusher and shows the ability to beat one on one pass blocks. Does a good job of getting his hands up to disrupt passing lanes and playing with his knees bent at all time, which helps him to consistently wrap up and tackle the ballcarrier as well as position himself for blocks. Dareus is highly consistent carrying out his assignment in every area, whether it involves making plays or tying up blockers. He has the skill & potential to be a top 10 pick and will be a starter in the NFL as a rookie due to the talent to be productive in any defensive scheme.
