2011 NFL Draft: Who Are Your Top Three For Buffalo?

A week ago today, I posted a Top 34 big board for the 2011 NFL Draft that was chock-full of one caveat: I still had two weeks in which I could change my mind. One of those weeks have passed, and quite frankly, I'm sort of surprised that my opinion hasn't shifted in that time frame.

Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus, Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller and LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson are the first three guys I'd like to see the Buffalo Bills take in just a hair over a week. Dareus, Miller and Peterson are listed in my order of preference. I expected to talk myself into a slightly different scenario over the last week, but haven't so far. Now, I'm not sure if I should expect that trend to continue, or if I'll have a new guy at No. 1 next week.

I'm posting this because I'm curious if anyone else here is experiencing the same thing. The Bills themselves, for the record, won't make their top three list until hours before the draft on April 28 - so if they reserve the right to flip-flop, so do we. Is anyone else expecting their opinions to change by next Thursday? Or, like me, are you surprised at the comfort level you've found in your opinions of the prospects at the top of the draft class?
