Summary

Dareus was one of the players most impacted by the arrival of Rex Ryan, and it wasn't particularly positive. After averaging 7 sacks/year during his first four years in the league, he averaged under 3 per year under Ryan. The new 4-3 front figures to give him more opportunities to shoot gaps and create havoc behind the line of scrimmage. There are off field concerns, however, given that he served a 4-game suspension last year for violating the league's drug policy. While the surrounding talent has dropped, Dareus is in the second year of a contract that pays him an average of $16MM/year and should return to elite status as long as he stays out of off-field trouble.
