I didn’t see this anywhere, so I thought I’d start my annual binky thread, an annual tradition. I have A LOT this year, but will only list a few. Usually dominated by offense, our defense really needs fixing, so there will be a bunch of defenders amongst my binkies. Though I think we will have needs at RB and TE possibly. On defense: I really like DE Harold Landry from Boston College, I think he’d be a perfect fit for the Pats adding much needed pass rush. I’ve seen him listed as a 1st round pick, and I think with a good combine, he jumps further up, though I’d love to see him fall to 31, not that Belichick would take him. Malik Jefferson LB Texas, he was a dominant defender every time I watched him. Sam Hubbard DE Ohio State, I love this guy, he has an incredible motor and great tenacity. Poona Ford DT Texas, a true run stopper. Taven Bryan DL Florida, his nickname is JJ Watt, enough said. Marquis Haynes DE Ole Miss, really good pass rusher, it’s what we need. Kentavious Street DE NC State, really impressed when I watched him. On offense: We are probably going to lose Dion Lewis, so there are 2 RBs that would be perfect to replace him. They are great runners, but also good receivers and blockers and have special teams experience (as returners). Possibly my favorite player in the draft, Sony Michel. He can do it all, reminds me of Tevin Coleman of the Falcons. Great speed and good size, very shifty, and has great hands. Perfect replacement for Lewis, but I’m afraid he’s gonna tear it up at the combine and be unreachable. Was hoping we’d grab him in the 2nd round. Another back who can do it all, Rashaad Penny, SD State. Would be a perfect pick to replace Lewis. TE wise, if Gronk and Bennett retire, and even if they don’t, Pats need to draft Gronk’s replacement soon (and TE depth). My favorite is Dallas Goedert South Dakota State. He’s the most Gronk like TE I’ve seen in years, so similar in playing style. Jordin Akins TE UCF, very talented, underrated TE. Mike Gesicki TE Penn State, love this guy, can be dominant at times. Another I like is Tyler Conklin Central Michigan. Have a bunch of other RBs and a slew of WRs I like, but will lost them on another post.
