For me, the five names that I want to hear are:
1. Connor Barwin
2. Jerron Gilbert
3. Louis Delmas
4. Alphonso Smith
5. Sammie Lee Hill
also in the mix-Jasper Brinkley, Brian Robiske, Jason Phillips, Eric Wood, Max Unger
Who are yours?
Since everyone so far other than yourself has listed exclusively day 1 prospects, I'm going to do a variation on your OP and list 5 day 1 prospects and 5 day 2 prospects.
1. Connor Barwin, OLB.
2. William Beatty, OT.
3. Louis Delmas, S. He could be the next Troy Polamalu, especially if he can add 10 more lbs.
4. Robert Ayers, DE/LB.
5. Hakeem Nicks, WR.
Sean Smith, Alex Mack, Eric Wood and Jarron Gilbert all deserve honorable mention.
I should mention that B.J. Raji is my absolute favorite prospect, but I'm not including him because I'm assuming he is out of reach for the Pats.
1. Mike Wallace, WR.
2. Sammie Lee Hill, DT.
3. Jason Phillips, ILB.
4. Trevor Canfield, OG.
5. Devin Moore, RB.
Chris Baker would be high on my list as well except for character issues. Joe Burnett deserves honorable mention.
