    My Binky, without question, is Calvin Pryor. A little unrealistic, but what a scary defensive backfield the Patriots would have then. He slipped a little after the Combine and Pete Prisco has him going to the Patriots at 29 in his latest mock so this is somewhat realistic. I can only hope.

    Aaron Donald is also a binky, but not realistic for the Patriots at 29.

    Would like to move down a bit but we Have not drafted OL in last 2 drafts. Joel Botonio. Most project him as a OG, but can play most positions. Line could need major overhaul next year. Gives him a chance to learn. Also it is realistic

    Both Dominique Easley and Deone Bucannon.

    Sadly realizing I don't have one. :( It used to be Ryan Shazier, but I'm no longer convinced he counts as "realistic."

    Somewhat obsessed with Bitonio and Stephon Tuitt, both of whom are big, physical, and perhaps most importantly... versatile.

    Botonio is fine binky, if we are forced to pick at 29 (no Mosley or Shazier). I'd also add Beckham.

    Stephon Tuitt or Deone Bucannon. If the Pats were to come away with both in this draft I would consider it a good draft.

    I agree, patchick. I'd be more than satisfied with a guy like Shazier at 29, but I do not think it's realistic anymore. I actually don't see Shazier getting past the early to mid 20s at worst.

    I'm guessing that it's going to be a relatively "safe" pick in the trenches myself. That seems to make the most sense, I think.

    I keep coming up with one of two contradictory options if they stay at 29: either "safe" with a DT or OL, or a swing at the fences with a high-ceiling WR.

    2015 #1.

    Lots of guys I like, no-one I love (in our range) so I would love to trade our #1 for a later pick (generally it's a #2 but I'd do a #3 depending on the team) and a 2015 #1 and hope to get lucky with where that falls.

    Not sure I have a name for this otherwise. I would be fine saying Easley but the double ACL worries me (although Frank Gore had the same issue coming into the league).

    Any LB who will excel at coverage. Shazier,Tripp,C.Jones or Pierre-Louis. I think there is a realistic chance at all of them.

    I'm starting to think he will be there with all the WR hoopla going around.

    In that case, I'd like to go on the record saying that Marqise Lee, Cody Latimer, Kelvin Benjamin and Allen Robinson are all future All-Pros and nobody should pass up that opportunity. :)

    Shazier and Pryor are 2 of my favorite players in this draft (along with Donald who we have no shot at)! I truly believe both will be gone at #29 but if either are there, I'd pounce. More realistically I wouldn't be mad if we draft any of the following @ #29: Ebron, Clinton-Dix, Ealy, Easley and even Ward.

    I would be in hog heaven if Pryor fell to us. He's exactly what the Pats need paired across from McCourty. He gives you FS coverage skills and the ability to hit like a Mack truck. He can play centerfield, deep, or in the box. After him, I would say Easley and/or Jordan Matthews in the 2nd. I particularly think Matthews would be an absolute monster in this offense.
