The mock drafts are flying all over the place. The National Football Post on the heels of the NFL combine have Buffalo scooping up one of the more impressive offensive linemen at the combine.
NFP has Carolina taking Cam Newton first overall, followed by Nick Fairley to Denver. So with the third pick they have Buffalo taking Marcell Dareus.
Dareus has been looked upon as a safe pick that high on the board, and he came across well in his interview with the media. And his physique is rare. Squarely built and super thick from head to toe, the guys is an instant answer for an ailing run defense, something Buffalo has.
Seeing Newton going first overall in this mock isn’t a big surprise. Talk of Newton possibly being the first overall pick really gained some traction at the NFL combine, especially after it was reported that Panthers head coach Ron Rivera met with Newton twice. Once during the first night of informal interviews and then the close door personal interview.
