Buffalo Bills 3rd overall picks, 3 days from the 2016 NFL draft

Marcell Dareus was Buffalo's third overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

The 2016 NFL draft is three days away. Who have the Buffalo Bills drafted at pick 3?

Buffalo has drafted two players at pick 3. Here’s a look at the former Bills draft picks.

Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama (2011)

The Buffalo Bills knew that the Carolina Panthers were going to select Cam Newton with the first pick in the 2011 NFL draft. Von Miller and Marcell Dareus were the next two prospects who were expected to go off the board. Sure enough, the Bills landed Dareus.

The defensive tackle came onto the scene and recorded 5.5 sacks in each of his first two seasons. In his third season, Dareus’ production took off. He set a career high with 46 total tackles and 7.5 sacks. At the end of the 2013 season, Dareus was named to his first Pro Bowl.

Mr. Big Stuff came back in 2014 and wreaked havoc in opposing backfields. The defensive tackle was a force in run defense and set a new career high with 10 sacks. He was named to his second Pro Bowl and was also named a First-Team All-Pro.

In September 2015, Dareus signed a six-year extension worth over $96 million.

Last year, Dareus’ production fell off in Rex Ryan’s first season at the helm. He registered 38 total tackles and two sacks. Although his sack totals were a career-low, Dareus was still dominant in run defense.

In five seasons, Dareus has recorded 253 total tackles, 30.5 sacks, 12 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Dareus is a defensive cornerstone of the Bills and his best years are ahead of him.

Ken Rice, OT, Auburn (1961)

In his first season with the Bills, Rice was named an AFL All-Star. He missed the 1962 season but played 14 games with Buffalo in 1963. He played 28 total games with the Bills.

After his stint in Buffalo, Rice spent two seasons with the Raiders and two seasons with the Dolphins. Rice retired in 1967.
