The National Football Post has put together its latest mock draft and if things fall this way I know I’d be pretty pleased.
After sending Cam Newton to Carolina with the top pick, they have Denver taking Von Miller second overall. At three they’ve got the Bills taking DL Marcell Dareus with the following reasoning.
Dareus gives the Bills get the upgrade they need along the defensive front for a unit that ranked 32nd vs. the run in 2010.
Dareus teamed with Kyle Williams and Dwan Edwards looks like a very formidable front three for the Bills. Dareus also can push the pocket and is not just a run plugger. He also offers versatility at 319 pounds as he could kick inside and give Williams a break at the nose.
I’d be satisfied if the Bills got Von Miller, but I’d be thrilled if they landed Dareus. Most mocks have Dareus going second overall to Denver.
