If we do take a DL that high then LeKevin Smith will be cut. I was all for taking a DL that high until they resigned Wright.
My guess is that no DL will be taken day 1 as there is just no room on the roster.
I'd say the exact opposite - my guess is a DL will be taken on the first day. Too many high round picks to pass on all the beef that is pretty much gone by day two. Smith is far from enough of a player to prevent the Pats from bringing in more youth and competition to a front three that has become a bit lackluster.

I still think BB has later round options at DE in this draft, but the 2010 draft has a couple of monster DL guys that could be #1 picks. Would they last until #32? Not sure about that.
Love the way you think Ochmed. I'm on board for DL early this year, it makes too much sense to give a prospect some time to learn the system, a very important position on a BB defense. I don't see Seymour being re-signed next year and we can't rely on studs falling in the draft next year to us, nor backups stepping in that have currently not shown the ability.
I think Wright is OK at end, but just as a rotational guy. Smith looked OK too.
Jackson will probably be long gone by 23. Hood doesn't seem to be a fit for 3-4.
Gilbert is a very interesting case though. On the one hand, 23 might be a little high for him. On the other hand, if we don't grab him at 23, it's possible he'll end up with one of our AFC rivals - Steelers, Colts, Dolphins. So I'd have to consider it very seriously. Gilbert should be an upgrade over Jarvis right away on 3rd downs and will be good insurance for Seymour in 2010.
If we go this route, I'd have to think Jarvis is fighting for his life in TC.
I seriously doubt Seymour is resigned after this season.
I think Gilbert would be the way to go in the first round, even if they trade down a few spots before taking him. Or even better...if they think he'll make it to #34 its a no brainer. This would free up a lot of cap space by allowing them to cut Jarvis Green, and give them a very capable replacement for Seymour in 2010.
Gilbert and Barwin (or vice versa) with the first 2 picks would be a great start to this draft.....
Q&A: Jarron Gilbert, DT, San Jose St.

NFL Draft Bible Q&A on location from the San Jose St. Pro Day with Jarron Gilbert.
Jarron Gilbert (along with Christopher Owens & Coye Francies) speak with Player Spotlight host Andrew Garda after a stellar Pro Day at San Jose St. on March 20th.
I’m here with Jarron Gilbert, who just had a pretty good Pro Day. Today you spent a lot of time with Rex Ryan–how did that go?
Gilbert: Oh, it went good. We just went through some drills–I think I did pretty good with him, picking things up. Just had a pretty good day out here.
You were the 2008 WAC Co-Defensive Player of the Year. That speaks to a great deal of consistency as well as production. What goes into your day to day workout routine that allows you to reach such a high-level of play?
Gilbert: Well, during the season I watched a whole lot of film and studied my opponents to a tee. I knew everything about them going into the week, so that really helped me during the season. And I had a lot of free time during the semester, I only took one unit during the semester and that was archery. I had already graduated so it gave me a lot of time to really study my opponent and a lot of confidence going into the game. So, it helped me out there on the field.
So film study…A lot of guys–the gym, the field–that’s their biggest focus, but it sounds like film study to you is as important as anything else in the game.
Gilbert: Yeah, film study and staying strong during the week, staying healthy. Getting in the training room and getting in the weight room and getting my body back to its peak for Saturday. That was the biggest thing for me.
What do you do that gives you that edge so you can get into the backfield and disrupt a play before it even really takes off?
Gilbert: I’m just quick off the ball. Quick with a good first step, and I get strong at the point of attack which allows me to get a lot of penetration. I came into the season pretty much a three year starter at end and moved inside, so coming inside I felt more athletic and quicker dealing with the guards then they’re used to. So being able to get off with speed really helped me out.

I can't see passing on a top DE (and giving him a year to develop) just because a monster defensive end MIGHT drop to us in next year's draft so that Belichick can start a rookie.
I wouldn't be shocked if we try to trade 47 for a 1st rounder next year. If the team does poorly a la SF, we could end up with a high pick. Or, more ammunition to trade up if said team has a decent season.
Gilbert at 34 at the earliest but that means you have to take Barwin at 23. Then Safety or OL 47/58 range. If we get a safety later, Chip Vaughn might be a good choice. Great size/speed combo. Assuming of course that Moore, Chung, Delmas are gone by then.
