SB Nation New York 2011 Mock Draft: With The Second Pick, Denver Selects ...

Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama.

The Denver Broncos have a new, defensive-minded, head coach in John Fox. They are going against the NFL grain and converting from the 3-4 defense to the 4-3. The Broncos have lots of needs on the defensive side of the ball, side the defense absolutely won't work without stout defensive tackles.

In its most recent mock draft SB Nation also has Dareus going to the Broncos here. SB Nation says "this pick represents a convergence of safe pick, need pick and talent pick all in one."

Draft Countdown says Dareus is "capable of wreaking havoc in the backfield from multiple positions."

Fox and the Broncos need the right players to re-structure this defense. When thinking about this pick, don't forget that Fox spent time as the New York Giants defensive coordinator, and the Giants are a team that places extraordinary emphasis on solidifying the defensive line. Dareus seems like the right player for Denver to start with.
