Marcell Dareus on his way to destroying last year's stat line

ADVERTISEMENT

On the subject of breakout seasons, Buffalo Bills fans are
most likely to think of rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso.

But as Buffalo News reporter Mark Gaughan wrote for today's
paper, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus consistently has been showing elite
skills so far
.

The third overall pick of the 2011 draft was pretty good as
a rookie but took a step backward last year while dealing with the death of a
younger brother in a shooting
.

Dareus is on pace to obliterate his stats from last year,
when he finished with 26 tackles, five for losses and 5.5 sacks.

    Dareus does not receive the praise he deserves for his efforts. Is there anything that the defense can do to assist him . With a little help he may be on his way to the Pro Bowl.
