For some reason I think he'll be back (wishful thinking?) but, assuming he does... Who starts at TE next yr??? Personally, Jared Cook is free this offseason and I think he could make a starturn with Matty pulling the trigger..
Might be too much of a knucklehead but Finley?? What if the NotreDame TE fell to our pick?? Thoughts.....

he said he was 95% sure. Which i think if we win the superbowl that would be icing on the cake. I just hope he can return every now and then and teach our young TE somethin

I'd like Jared Cook as part of a 2 headed monster TE duo with Zach Ertz. Most of the things that Cook doesn't do particularly well (block, redzone threat, truck fools) are things that Ertz can do well. Both of them need to show better route running ability though. Hopefully Roddy, Robiskie, and Scelfo can polish them up in that area (assuming we land them).

Give me that TE (Eifert?) from Notre Dame if Gonzo retires. That boy can ball.

He'll be taken too early unless we trade up.

Maybe. Only a few teams need a TE late in the first. Bears would be a strong possibility.

I could see either the Bears, Packers, or Seahawks taking him.
He's just too darn good for teams not to take him. Unless the Raiders or some other team jack up the draft again, I don't see him slipping.

in the first? Don't see it. We have zach miller, we need a WR, Olineman and Pass Rusher a lot more.

Really you need receiving threats for Wilson, and let's face it, Miller isn't a big receiving threat (although he's being used as a blocker first). It just all depends really on who's available and their prospect rankings. My point was since Seattle needs a receiving threat, which Eifert is, he could fill that need.
