Believe it or not, the NFL draft is exactly one month away.

The Patriots will make their first selection on Thursday, April 25 when they pick No. 32 overall (unless of course they trade down, or up, which is always possible). Over the last few weeks Patriots executives and scouts have traveled the country to visit a bunch of different pro days to get an up close and personal look at prospects.

Next up is top 30 visits, which should begin in the next week or so.

Here's who the experts have the Patriots selecting at No. 32 overall in version 4.0 of our mock draft roundup (click here to see the previous version).
