INDIANAPOLIS -- University of Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus held his news conference with the media today at the NFL Scouting Combine and struck an impressive form.
Dareus measured in at 6-foot-3 1/2 and 319 pounds. He is built like a tree trunk. His body is reminscent of that of former Bills and current Vikings star Pat Williams, who goes about 340. Dareus doesn't have Big Pat's paunch but his body is thick from head to toe. Impressive. Dareus, of course, has a lot more talent coming out of college than Williams. Dareus figures to be a top-five pick in the NFL Draft.
"At ‘Bama we played a little four-man, three-man, we did a lot of rotating," Dareus said. "I think I’ll adapt to it (the NFL) pretty well. I’ve played 3-tech, defensive end, nose, a little bit of everything."
