    Brandon Meriweather

    Of those you mentioned, possibly LeKevin Smith if they switch to a 4-3.

    Pierre Woods could as well. He had a great training camp this past season and could see an increased workload in '08.

    Agreed on Meriweather.

    But of those you listed, I think Chad Jackson is just waiting for his chance, and if he gets it I expect him to be good.

    I'd love to see Chad turn into a big time player.

    Only 22 years old, we'd be blessed for years to come!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Chad off the team.

    He complained loudly about lack of play.

    Merriweather could step up and start. Maybe David Thomas can be used as a pass catching weapon.

    The others are backups.

    With the seventh pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots select Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB from Ohio State ........
