Needless to say, this is by far the most excited I have been as a Bills fan in quite a while. Paul Posluszny is the perfect fit for the Buffalo Bills - he comes at a position of HUGE need, he is the hardest worker you'll find, he's smart, tough and has the skills to fit in our defensive scheme. Best of all, he's a leader - with all of our departures on the defensive side of the ball this year, his leadership qualities will be of most value to the Bills out of the gate.

In order to move up to select Posluszny, the Bills swapped the #43 and #74 picks for the rights to the #34 pick. This is a pretty steep price to pay in my opinion, but I also believe that the value Posluszny represents easily outweighs the price paid. Great move by our front office.

Seriously, I am absolutely thrilled right now to be a Bills fan! GREAT job by Marv to realize that the 'backers would slide and get TWO first-round talents!
