National Football Post’s Matt Bowen, who was with the Bills in 2006, has a defensive lineman going to Buffalo at third overall.
Bowen picks Nick Fairley for the Panthers at one followed by Da’Quan Bowers to Denver at two. Then he picks Marcell Dareus at three for the Bills. Here’s his line of thought on the pick.
Defensive coordinator George Edwards needs players—and that starts with Dareus up front. The DT can play as a DE in the 3-4 front or slide inside as a 3 technique in a 4-3 front. The Bills ranked dead last in the NFL vs. the run in 2010. Time to make some changes to their front seven if they want to compete in the AFC East. With Fairley off of the board, Dareus is the right pick at No.3.
