One of the themes to the 2011 NFL Draft - at least here at Buffalo Rumblings - was the fact that each and every Buffalo Bills pick was so well-received by the fans that spent time with us over draft weekend. We've covered five separate drafts here, starting in 2007 with the likes of Marshawn Lynch and Trent Edwards, and this is by far the best mood we've seen Bills fans in after a draft.
Even the least popular picks this weekend - which, unsurprisingly (and perhaps unfairly), were the three defensive backs - had approval from at least three out of every five Bills fans. Meanwhile, you'll be hard-pressed to find a draft pick that's ever been as universally accepted as Marcell Dareus was. After the jump, you'll find all nine Bills draft picks ranked by approval rating from over the weekend - with fourth-round pick Chris Hairston making a surprise stop at No. 2 overall.
