Dareus brings more than talent

Bills top pick Marcell Dareus, who signed his rookie contract Friday to report to camp on time, is going to bring a whole lot more to Buffalo’s defense than just playmaking talent.

According to Bill GM Buddy Nix and coaches on the defensive side of the ball, Dareus will be bringing a certain swagger and attitude to that side of the ball.

“He’s got a unique swagger to him because he’s very respectful and very unassuming, but he’s got that edge to him too,” said Bills defensive line coach Giff Smith. “When it comes time he’s going to perform. Kyle (Williams) has that edge and Dwan (Edwards) has it, but with Marcell it’s a little bit different. He might be a little more vocal and obviously once you produce on the field it adds more to it, but he’s going to bring an edge to our defense.”
