Locks:**Locks: Stephen Gostkowski, Ryan Allen

Bubble: Danny Aiken

Long shot: Tyler Ott

BREAKDOWN: The Patriots kicking game is in good hands with Gostkowski and Allen. The former is one of the best in the business while the latter enjoyed a solid rookie season in 2013 after unseating the popular Zoltan Mesko. The only question here is who will be handling the snapping duties? Aiken had been rock solid his first two seasons but had some bouts with wildness last year, culminating with a horrendous snap over Allen's head in the playoffs. Perhaps Ott, a rookie out of Harvard, can offer a push this summer.
