Bills DL Marcell Dareus received all rookie honors this week.

Dareus was named to the National Football Post All-Rookie Team. Here’s what they wrote about Dareus’ first season in  the NFL.

Marcell Dareus – Buffalo
Dareus started off the season playing as a 5-technique defensive end in Buffalo’s 3-4 scheme. When nose tackle Kyle Williams went down with an injury, Dareus was moved inside to play on the nose. He played more than 75 percent of the defensive snaps and put up some good numbers for an inside guy. He finished with 43 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He is best as a run stuffer, but 5.5 sacks is an excellent number for a rookie inside player. He was a great pickup for the Bills.
