2. Marcell Dareus
Back in 2011, the Buffalo Bills drafted Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus third overall. Dareus entered the league with a ton of excitement after winning the MVP award in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game for the Tide as they knocked off Texas.
Dareus was a disruptive force for the Bills, capable of shutting down the run game while also generating pressure on the quarterback. He ended up making the Pro Bowl in back-to-back seasons for Buffalo in 2013 and 2014 where he had 17.5 sacks in that stretch.
In 2015, he was given a six-year contract extension worth $95.1 million. However, his suspensions by the league and decline in numbers led to him being traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Oddly enough, the pick Buffalo received for Dareus led to the selection of Wyatt Teller — who is now the projected starting right guard for the Browns.
Now a free agent, the 30-year-old Dareus has yet to find his new home. While he’s not the player he once was, he continued to be a solid run-stuffer for the Jaguars over the past two seasons and would make a lot of sense as a one-year stop gap — and since Billings contract will roll over to 2021, that’s all they will need out of Dareus.
