40-Yard Dash:

Strengths:
  • Incredible speed and athleticism for a big man

  • Excellent size and power
  • Has the strength to hold the point of attack
  • Solid run stuffer with the quickness to rush the passer


  • Quick off the snap and good burst off the line

  • Very quick hands
  • Good leg drive
  • solid work ethic

Weaknesses:

Bottom Line on Marcell Dareus:

Marcell Dareus is another guy in a long list of potential first-round picks who is best suited for either the five-technique defensive end spot in a 3-4 system or the three-technique tackle in a 4-3 set. Dareus could also play nose tackle in either defense.

Projection: Dareus's versatility, athletic ability, and overall talent is very attractive to NFL scouts, and there's no reason to believe he won't be selected in the top half of the first round. He could perhaps go as early as top five with good pre-draft workouts.
