NFL Draft 2011 Round 1 #3 Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Darreus says-

Dareus is one of this class’ finest prospects. Possesses the athleticism and explosiveness to be consistently disruptive against the run and pass. Hands that don’t stop, sheds blockers quickly, and frequently uses the swim move to get to the quarterback. Also has great power to push the pocket and stand his ground adequately when run at. Blessed with great feet and outstanding lateral quickness. Comfortable playing in space and likely capable of dropping into coverage. Only question is his endurance and stamina. Played in a rotation early and dealt with injuries as a junior. Dareus will likely be a top-five pick, maybe even go No. 1 overall.

This draft should be interesting, but would be more interesting if teams could trade players for picks. Hopefully the teams will improve upon their ability to get value for their draft position. There have been some real busts over the years, Leaf and Russell, just to name two. Over the past 15 years or so, Pittsburgh has gotten the most value for its picks and Detroit has gotten the least.
