Tedy Bruschi is the only player certain to play full-time there with Mike Vrabel and Thomas having the versatility to move over and the gutsy veteran isn't quite what he once was. There are options there. Veteran Edgerton Hartwell has had preliminary talks with the team, is willing to come in on a one-year deal and has the size and 3-4 experience to make it work, so long as he stays healthy. Hartwell (still just 28) could provide at least an early-down stopgap, if a rookie's drafted somewhere. That rookie, in fact, could well be Ole Miss' Patrick Willis with the 24th pick. But whoever it may be, if there is someone, would probably need to be eased into a very difficult position for a young player to take on." If this were to happen, my offseason would be pretty much complete.
