In his latest mock draft, Todd McShay of ESPN projects the Browns to select Alabama's Marcell Dareus with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Dareus is a 6-3, 309 pound defensive tackle who ranks second best at his position behind Auburn's Nick Fairley.
McShay, along with many other draft experts, anticipate the Browns to beef up a defensive line that recently lost Shaun Rodgers and Kenyon Coleman. Todd McShay offered his thoughts on the situation in a conference call yesterday afternoon.
"First off, let me point out that my last name has two capital letters -- which makes me exponentially better than you right off the bat." He later added these thoughts on Dareus, "He's strong, a lot stronger than people think ... has great awareness. He's not as big or athletic as Fairley, but he might be a more complete player when he's 100 percent. He can play the 3-4 or a 4-3 for teams going back and forth ... like Cleveland that want to do different things up front."
When someone pointed out Cleveland's desperate need for a game-changing wide receiver, McShay nodded solemnly, "The Browns have a lot of needs. You can look at a variety of position groups like the defensive line, the wide receiver core, the linebackers... Kiper and I were watching film on the Browns' receivers last week and noticed that often times, Robiskie and Massaquoi would line up on opposite sides of the line of scrimmage, run quick slants to the middle of the field, then see who could punch the other in the dick first instead of running their routes." After a quick chuckle, McShay added, "Although the entertainment value is high with their existing core, the production is sorely lacking."
McShay then redirected the conversation back to Dareus, "[He] has a little durability concern, and he had the two-game suspension," referring to the suspension Dareus earned for receiving improper benefits from an agent. "A few pro-scouts attended his pre-combine workouts and noticed that his girlfriend, who was also in attendance, was wearing an "I Heart Bieber" t-shirt -- so questions about his decision making ability have risen. I mean, if the guy is dating a Bieber fan, who's to say he won't take a gun into a nightclub and shoot himself in the leg?
"We also noticed him eating a few skittles after his workout, forcing many to question his commitment to fitness." McShay wrapped up the conference call with this, "All this to say, I'm obnoxiously and offensively overpaid for what I do, and although my work impacts nothing on draft day and will actually be proven completely useless by the team's actual selections, I'll continue to do this pointless process year in and year out. God forbid I actually do something that contributes to anything, ever."
