    I'm ready to give Hill a roster spot. He contributed some and is developing. However is anyone ready to give spots to two of Klecko, Wright and Thomas without competition?

    NOSE TACKLE
    I don't we should look until the second. Gabe Watson and John McCargo fit the bill there, or Oshiniwo in the 4th.

    DEFENSIVE END
    There is no need, except for tweeners. I would give up Klecko's 7th DL roster spot to a tweener. I agree with others that tweeners belong in the linebacker discussion.

    VERY true...a backup for Wilfork is needed. He needs a bit of time for a change of pace guy...a quick compact NT...so it is a real change. I remember the Hamilton/Bishop days in mid late 70s. One was quick the other just beat the heck out of you. Wilfork will be even better with a solid backup who can play. Too bad Kelly was cut; although he was a bit away from game time.
