Jerry Reese likes two DTs at combine

NFL notes: Jerry Reese bullish on two DTs

FROM NEWS SERVICE REPORTS

INDIANAPOLIS — Ndamukong Suh brought unprecedented glamour to interior defensive linemen as a senior at Nebraska, then as the defensive rookie of the year for the Detroit Lions.

Auburn’s Nick Fairley and Alabama’s Marcell Dareus hope to follow in his success.

NFL decision makers say game-changing defensive tackles are hard to find, but Fairley and Dareus are versatile and bear enough similarities to Suh that both are expected to be chosen early in April’s NFL Draft.

"It’s hard to find guys who can play the run and push a pocket up the middle and get in the quarterback’s face," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said Saturday at the NFL combine. "Those guys jump out at me right away."

Fairley and Dareus will compete with Clemson end Da’Quan Bowers to be the top defensive lineman picked.

The Browns have the sixth overall pick, and coach Pat Shurmur is impressed with the two defensive tackles.

"They’re obviously two very fine players, and guys that would be a good fit," he said.

Suh is unique, and Reese said it would be unfair to expect anyone to duplicate him.

"Ndamukong Suh, those kind of guys — those guys are rare talents," said the Giants’ GM, who has the 19th pick. "You don’t see a lot of those guys. You might not see another guy with that skill set for another 10 years."

This further shows to me that DT is very much on the Giants radar.

It looks like Cofield isn't coming back.

We won't get a shot at Fariley, but depending on how things shake up, Dareus may be end up in a position we can trade up to get.

Very nice quote on what catches his eye. Not very surprising but nice quote.
