Between now and whenever the 2011 NFL season actually begins, you can expect at least 1 million – and more likely 2 or even 3 million – stories about rookies intimating that they have a chip on their shoulder and about how they have something to prove and yada yda yada because so many teams passed on them in the draft.
M. Dareus (US Presswire)
Normally, it’s best to treat these stories the same way you might treat a panhandler in Times Square: pretend not hear. But we’ll make an exception for Marcell Dareus, only because he was drafted so high that when he gripes about teams that passed on him, he can’t help but get specific.

That’s what the No. 3 overall pick did in a recent appearance on Michael Irvin’s radio show on WQAM in Miami. Irvin asked Dareus if he should have been the first overall pick.

Dareus replied “yes” with no hesitation. Then he elaborated. “If I ever get a chance to play Carolina I’m going to make them pay for passing up on me,” he said. “Denver I’ll get a chance to play them in the regular season (this year) and I’m going to make it hell for them every time I play against them.”

That wasn’t all.

“I worked my butt off to the point where I’m not going to give you a reason not to pick me,” he said. “You’re not going to look at me and be like, ‘Well he’s good, but…” That ‘but’ word is never going to come up when you mention my name. My sole focus was for me not to give you a reason to not pick me and you still don’t? Okay, I understand you have needs somewhere else, but if you need somebody to control your front and be a commander across the front and not let anything happen? I work my butt off to do that, and you pass me up still? Okay, I’ve got something for you.”

So, in conclusion, Marcell Dareus has confirmed that he intends to play hard against the Broncos this year and against the Panthers in 2013.

Actually, Marcell, when I hear mention of you the "butt" word DOES come up...

Does Dareus realize that the Panthers passed over everybody not named Cam Newton?  Perhaps Dareus is just mad because an Auburn Tiger went #1 overall.  In all seriousness, Ron Rivera, a Super Bowl winning player and a great defensive minded coordinator turned coach decided to NOT pick Dareus #1.  Perhaps Rivera saw Dareus as being a foolish pick at #1.

Who is Marcell Dareus? Is he a DT, DE,LB or DB? I already know he is brash and arrogant rookie. Dareus should pipe down because according to many articles on cnnis and bleacher report Dareus will be one of the biggest busts from 2011.

So he's going to play hard against Carolina every four years and Denver every other year or so...it'll be just like the other players the Bills typically get. They'll play hard for oh, a game or two and realize...they're on the Bills so what's the point? At best, they'll finish somewhere between 6-10 and 7-9, finish third or last in the Division and get a mid-round draft pick OR they finish with a bottom 5 record, last in the division and get a top 5 draft pick at worst.

Same story, same players, same ownership, same everything...haven't made the playoffs in 12 years; last time they did, Marcel Dareus was what...in 2nd grade? Doug Flutie was being benched for Rob Johnson and the World Trade Center was promintely displayed in the southern Manhattan skyline.

Good for you Marcel...good for you big guy! Go Bills!

I'm not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed that the Broncos didn't take Dareus with their first pick, but I think there should be no regrets for anybody involved in drafting Von Miller first. Seriously, I can't believe this guy has such an ego that he considers it a chip on his shoulder that he was only selected top 3 instead of top 2. Dareus, look at the facts. 1) Carolina would have loved you but a good defense can only do so much when the offense is nonexistent.  2) Trust me, Denver would have loved to have drafted you for the d-line but the Broncos had more holes to fill on defense than they could count. You're a dominant pass rusher who would have been a great asset, but Denver made the right decision taking Von Miller.  He offers a very good pass rush but offers some versatility in being able to provide some coverage too.  The Broncos look forward to your challenge, and if you want to make it hell for them you're gonna have to get through Ryan Clady first.
