I know that it's out of the question considering our budget and what the team is already spending on Zach Miller, but I would love to take a run at Dennis Pitta, who is a RFA right now. I do understand that we have options in the draft and that the TE position is excellent in the first three rounds, but I think Pitta would excel as another option for Russell Wilson.
I think that our O-Line is loaded, so to those who are talking about tackles and guards, I respectfully submit that those are luxury picks. If everyone stays away from Jake Long, he could be an upgrade if we shift him to RT and let Giacomini back him up, but I'm sure that someone will take a chance on him even with his injury history because he is excellent when healthy.
I like the DT talent quite a bit in the draft, so after hopefully re-signing Jason Jones, I would focus on DE. What will Michael Bennett cost? Probably too much, but he's a high-motor guy that I liked when he was in camp with us as a rookie. Still, I would love to see him signed.
I also would like to take a run at Reggie Bush, cost permitting. He would be a nice change-of-pace back that could, along with Turbin, spell Lynch, and we could split him wide as well (and of course, if Leon Washington ever goes down, he is a fantastic option as a PR/KR).
However, this is more my wish list. I imagine that Schneider will re-sign Branch and Jones and then he will sit tight and not do too much to bring higher-profile players in, though the team may scour Cameroon for six-foot-four soccer defenders that they'll convert to WLB.
