    David Harris, LB, Michigan. Not in the 1st round, but I think this guy is a Patriots player all around.

    LB is my top season priority, regardless of how much I stress the importance of a deep WR.

    But I have a feeling that LB will be well addressed in free agency or in trades.

    No doubt an LB or LBs will be taken in the draft - I'm just not sure they will be counted on for 2007 strategy

    I dont know specific players but I think the top priority is LB (depending on what happens in free agency - whether they can get Thomas or somebody else comparable) or Cornerback.

    Having Na-Polian, still clouded by his SuperBowl fluke, draft someone who he thinks will be a stud but turns out to be a big bust and sets back the Colts franchise for years.

    A defensive player who can start from day one and a WR for Brady. Thats all we're all asking for.

    Be it the draft or FA they need more team speed on defense especially at ILB and SS.

    3 starters and 2 quality backups will be a awesome draft .

    I am not high getting a WR as most are as last year it took the team a while a find 3 stable guys so i see them work on jabbar,reche a little more with troy/thomas/watson in the slot as our primary set.

    which ofcourse means our second group kite,bam and cj will now get a chance to get intergrated into the the system this preseason and season.It is not possible to get in a rhythm with 5 new WR overnight, you do it in steps.so i see step 2 this season.

    I love "The Poz". I think he has great heart and character and would be a big impact player. With that said, I would rather sign A. Thomas and Jarret Johnson. I think that is very possible and affordable.

    At least one of: Anthony Spencer, Patrick Willis, David Harris. Preferably two. And a DB with one of the first rounders.

    I want a non-DL defensive player with one of the first rounders, and with the other as well, though if we go for an offensive player then I'd pick a RT.

    Like most of us, I'm perennially hoping for linebackers--but realistically, FA looks like the place to restock at LB this year. Meanwhile safety and WR look like stronger positions in the draft. WR is always a huge gamble in round 1, looks good in 2-4. So in round 1 give me a knockout safety, or a corner only if a guy like Darrelle Revis slides to 24.

    Over on the draft board, you'll also notice a growing fixation on RB/FB/HB Brian Leonard.
