Poll: Which Bills Rookie Will Push To Start?

There's a general consensus coming out of the 2011 NFL Draft that the Buffalo Bills, in focusing their efforts on upgrading its defensive depth chart, selected several players that could push for starting jobs. Chief among them, of course, is defensive end Marcell Dareus, the third overall pick out of Alabama. As it's possible that he'll sign a contract similar to the deal that Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy signed a year ago (five years, $63.42 million, $35 million guaranteed), most assume Dareus will be in the starting lineup on opening day.

The real question, then, is which of Buffalo's other six new defenders has the best chance at starting on opening day. Buddy Nix made it very clear that he expects cornerback Aaron Williams and inside linebacker Kelvin Sheppard to compete for playing time, and depending on what happens on the free agent market, it wouldn't be surprising to see strong safety Da'Norris Searcy and inside linebacker Chris White do likewise. Our question for you: which of those four players do you believe has the best opportunity to start?
