I am 100% for Graham.
Williams should be considered for 1.12
Spiller will be considered a luxury b/c I'm afraid they won't trade Ronnie (although I think they should).
Dan Williams could be the pick b/c I doubt we land one of the premier NTs - (Wilfork, Hampton, Franklin) b/c they'll all be franchised or signed long term - but in the end, I think Tuna goes back to his bread-and-butter and drafts his next great LB in Brandon Graham.
I say dan but dont see it bc they don't go NT orund 1, they go NT late round bc a NT in the late round can do what a NT in the ealry RD can, bust for less money, succeed for lses money and what it takes to succeed is to hold double teams consistently.
I could see something like...
1.) Brandon Graham OLB
2.) Demaryius Thomas WR
3.) Cam Thomas NT
4.) EJ Edds ILB
Karlos Dansby ILB (I think we finally get a prized FA this year)
Ben Watson TE
Jason Ferguson NT
Jason Taylor OLB
Davone Bess WR
Anthony Fasano TE
Joey Porter (6th rounder)
Ted Ginn, Jr. (2011 undisclosed)
Gibril Wilson (cut)
Having Ben Watson and Anthony Fasano would give us a buffer if our young WRs (Demaryius, Hartline, Bess) struggled. Basically, Ben Watson could be a "weapon1" if Demaryius doesn't deliver as a WR1.
Sheffler over Watson.
We wont go into the next season without a veteran WR and a veteran FS. MARK MY WORDS.

Ben Watson???????? New England is getting rid of him due to his diminishing abilities? I'd stay with what we have at TE or a late draft pick.
