ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have selected
Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus with the No. 3 pick in the
NFL draft, going with a big body to plug a porous defense.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 308 pounds, Dareus is a versatile lineman
who proved capable of pressuring the quarterback as well as
stopping the run. Dareus was the defensive MVP in helping the
Crimson Tide defeat Texas in the 2010 national championship game.

He joins a Bills defense that took much of the blame for the
team's 4-12 finish. The unit particularly struggled against the
run. Buffalo allowed 200 yards rushing eight times last year, and
2,714 overall - the second-highest total in team history.
