Is Marcell Dareus all that good?


So I have been hearing a lot lately about Marcell Dareus and him being possible Denver's pick at #2 or possibly the Panther's pick as #1. I guess I look at the guy and ask myself is he really as good as Suh or any other top five Defensive tackle in years past. Now I am not saying that if Denver were to pick him I wouldn't be okay with that but I am wondering why is he ranked so highly? From what I can tell his stats are not really all that impressive with 71 total tackles over 3 years and 33 games (2.15 Tackles a game). He has had 6.5 sacks two years ago and 4.5 sacks this past year which is not that bad but it is nothing to right home about. He is a big bodied versatile DT that seems to be able to help anchor the line but may never be all that fantastic. To me that doesn't seem like it would be worth a top five pick. Also I was reading Wes Bunting's scout report and there was an issue brought up that I have not heard reiterated anywhere else that Dareus might be for a lack over a better phrase 'mentally slow'. I believe Bunting does thinks he may have issues with a complex playbook. During the combine he said the incorrect word when being interviewed by the media. I want to believe in this guy because he very well might end up being as Bronco but could some please sell me on this guy?
