I would love to have de'anthony Thomas. Having a weapon like that would be awesome.

As a die hard Duck fan and someone that has watched every game of Kenjon's career at Oregon.. I agree with JSeahawk.

Don't get me wrong, Kenjon was an awesome back in college but too often I'd be frustrated with how he tried to bounce every run outside (have fun trying that in the league) or just fall down before he was hit to take as little damage as possible. Towards the end of the year, coincidentally, he REALLY reminded me of Shawn Alexander towards the end of his career in Seattle. Shying away from contact and just frustrating to watch.

I also share the opinion of most that DAT would be an awesome get for Seattle.. Having a guy like DAT that could catch balls out of the slot like a Wes Welker (but actually sure handed) and run after the catch like Percy Harvin would be an awesome tool for Russell Wilson. Colt is also going to be an absolute beast in the league. TE's always seem to be underutilized in Oregon's offense (Ed Dickson) and I think Colt is the best one to every come through the program. Check the links below for demonstrations of Colt's abilities.

And my personal fav, Colt as the "real Bane"

Anyways, I do believe Seattle needs to draft another RB because we all know they don't have the longest shelf life and lets face it.. Marshawn's been in the league for a few years. With that said, I like the following in this years draft..

-Le'Veon Bell
-Eddie Lacy
-Marcus Lattimore (really doesn't have THAT much wear and tear, some injury concerns but if you think he'll be able to make a full return you might get the most talented back in this draft)
-Stepfan Taylor (Lots of carry's but an absolute work horse)
