Vote for the most important Bills draft pick of the Nix/Whaley era

Now that Whaley has taken over, let's take a look back and see if we can figure out who the most important draft picks are from Nix onward.

What defines important? There's a lot of ways one could run with it (much like "most valuable"). Because all of these players are still pretty young, I think "important" defines a player on whom the team is placing a lot of responsibility and expectations. In other words, an "important" draft pick is less about projecting the possibility of success and more about the catastrophe of potential failure. Huzzah for failure.

For example, I'd be over the moon if Chris Gragg turned out to be the next Jason Witten (keep an eye out for Gragg, by the way), then after the fact he'd turn out to be a very important pick. But I don't think that defines him as an "important" pick as of right now.

This should be pretty easy. Just make a list of the ten most "important" picks, 10 to 1, and if enough people do it, we'll collect all the data and reverse the rankings to create point value (a "1" ranking = 10 points).

Feel free to explain your choices, too. It might be best to put explanations in a comment after your rankings. Also, if we start to get a lot of voting data, consider rec'ing the original post so it stays visible.
