Marcell Dareus has been overlooked at times with the emergence of Nick Fairley this past year. I think Dareus is the better prospect however. He is much more polished and while the productivity isn’t there as it is with Fairley, I think Dareus is a much safer pick. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a high ceiling, but I don’t see the bust potential in him as I do with Fairley.
