    9/28/2010- vs. Arkansas

    1st Qtr:

    14:52- Blows through the G and rushes toward Mallett. Quick and disruptive.
    10:18- Very disruptive even in this play where he was double teamed. He's very quick.
    6:05- Leveled and pushed way back in this play.
    3:01- Double teamed, keeps driving and collapses the pocket helmet even gets blown off.
    2:25- The kind of guy who will simply cause hurried throws through his disruption.
    2:19- Not a great job wrapping... the RB blew through him.

    I only watched a bit of Dareus and was very impressed. He's a relentless pocket collapser with great motor, push, and strength. Hes very nimble and quick for a man his size. He looks plenty big enough to handle the NT role in a 3-4.

    He is a 5 technique all the way.

    Here's the thing.

    If you think he can play NT, drafting him means we wasted our 2nd rounder on Troup, and that we want Kyle Williams to potentially get benched. I'm not sure I would say that.

    If you think he's a 3-4 DE. Id offer this, Stroud and Dwan Edwards may be two of our best players on the whole defense. Yes, you can never have enough good D linemen... but should we spend our top pick, a very high pick, on this guy and potentially bench one of our top players on defense?

    I'm not saying we shouldn't, only that it may not be as big of a need as other areas.

    With that high of a pick, it's about most bang for the buck.

    I like Dareus's tenacity and motor better than Troup's. I think he may have better success shedding blocks which is probably our number one issue with our run defense. We should really place an emphasis on getting guys that can get off blocks in this draft. Marcel could be that type of player.

    All we need Troup to do is eat blocks, shedding is a bonus. K Williams sheds pretty damn well. We need our 5 techs to be a balance of the two, or at least one of the 5 techs should be.

    I think Dareus has a edge just playing in the SEC game after game compared to Troup playing in Conference USA...I just think Troup will be that much better next year going into 2011.....Dareus is a better player no doubt.......

    Of course Dareus has the edge. I don't care what any scout say's, the competion level you play every week makes a difference. dareus can step right in. We are still waiting on Troup and Carrington and one of the big reasons is the huge step up in talent.
