These are guys I think we might have a shot at.  I have listed them in the order I would Like them.  I would be happy with any of these, but in the order I have them.  
1.  Cris Williams
2.  Brandon Albert
3.  Jonathan Stewart
4.  Quentin Groces
5.  Jerod Mayo
6.  Kentwan Balmer
7.  Kenny Phillips

Williams and Albert are probably gone and Mayo, Balmer And Phiilips we could trade down and get.  

Rnd 2 I like these guys:
1.  Cliff Avril
2.  Anthony Collins
3.  Duane Brown
4.  Kendall Langford

Probably can get Langford in the 3rd.

Emp, you still have Groves rated #4 even after having heart surgery? I am not being a smartass, I know nothing about the procedure he had. I really liked Groves prior to this so your input would be appreciated.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports Auburn DE/OLB Quentin Groves underwent surgery to treat Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome in his heart on March 27.

Groves had a rapid heartbeat. Anytime a heart needs to be repaired it's concerning, but Schefter says teams still project Groves as a first-round pick. Groves sent a letter to all 32 clubs informing them about the procedure. Still, this is something teams will have to weigh on draft day. -Rotoworld

This does suck as I thought he would be worthy of the 23rd pick if there is a run on OL.

It's likely that the "surgery" that Scheffter is talking about was actually a heart cath procedure that is much less invasive. A cardiologist threads a catheter up into the heart. The cardiologist then  uses a radiofrequency burst to destroy heart tissue that is conducting electrical impulses that are causing abnormal heart rythm. I had a similiar procedure about 10 years ago to treat a similiar, albeit less serious, problem.

However, WPW is no joke. While it's possible that it can be fixed, or minimized with drugs, this makes him DND IMHO.  Too great a risk that he will have recurrence, and have to be taken off the field. There is even a chance he could just drop dead of a sudden heart attack.  

Feel bad for the dude.
