2011 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 3
Walter Nolen‘s athleticism, ability to rush the passer from the interior or as a big defensive end all while having the size of a nose tackle reminds us of Marcell Dareus. Both were highly disruptive at the high school level. Dareus totaled 20 sacks as a senior at Birmingham (Ala.) Huffman in the 2008 cycle. Nolen racked up 31 tackles for loss and 14 sacks as a senior. Dareus had unique movement skills – he ran a 4.93 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine at 319 pounds. Nolen ran an electronically-timed 4.99 40 prior to his junior season at 302 pounds.
