Inside The Bills

Dareus built like a tree

Alabama DL Marcell Dareus weighed in at 319 pounds making him five pounds bigger than Buffalo’s Torell Troup, but looking at him you’d be convinced that it’s equally distributed between his upper and lower body.

At 6’3 1/2″ Dareus is thick from head to toe. When asked to characterize himself he said he’s a “nice guy.” That might sound like a turn off to NFL talent evaluators who want some nastiness up front, that is until you hear Dareus explain himself.

“I’m a real nice guy,” he said. “Everybody I tackle I pretty much help them up. Then I tell them, ‘I’m coming after you on the next play.’ I like to have fun playing the game.”

Here’s a shot of Dareus here at the combine. The man’s thighs look like they’re about 32 inches around, which would be equivalent to my waist.
