So far, we have added a starting RT(wagner), a rotation DT(Spence), a rotation DE(Washington and a depth CB (Hayden). There is at least one splash signing that I would like to see: Terrelle Pryor. He has more size than any WR on our roster. After watching Marvin Jones and Golden Tate both disappear for stretches, I think shaking up that group would be beneficial.

I could also see us signing another LB such as Zach Brown or Mike Morgan. I would love to see Zach Brown get a crack at our MLB or SLB position

Who would you like to see?

Pryor just signed with wash 1 yr 8 mil deal...

Terrelle Pryor's 1 year deal is really only a $6M commitment. The other $2M are available via incentives. $3M signing bonus

There are a lot of decent third receiver options. Stevie Johnson, Vincent Jackson, Anquan Boldin, Kamar Aiken, Cordarrelle Patterson, Brian Quick, Cecil Shorts, Kendall Wright, etc. Not all of them are home-run signings, but most should be quite serviceable as a fourth or fifth option in our receiving game.

I'd prefer to retain Boldin.

I agree, and I also hope we draft one in the first 3/4 rounds to add to the mix.

Boldin was a really nice addition last year. Who are some big bodied WR we could get in the middle rounds that would fit the mold of Boldin?

I'm a little surprised at this especially because the Browns have so much money and diddly at the rest of their WR corp.

I'd like to see us sign Jared Cook, just so it's one less thing we have to spend a draft pick on. I want all defense (and Samaje Perine) for the draft.

QB: Matthew Stafford/Jake Rudock
FB: Michael Burton
RB: Ameer Abdullah/Theo Riddick/Samaje Perine
TE: Eric Ebron/Jared Cook
WR: Golden Tate/
LT: Taylor Decker/
LG: Graham Glasgow/Joe Dahl
C: Travis Swanson/Graham Glasgow
RG: Laken Tomlinson/Joe Dahl
RT: Ricky Wagner/
WR: Marvin Jones/

I just want someone who can catch a pass. i think Ebron and Cook are passing options, and I think Riddick works better as a pass catcher out of the backfield. I think Jared Abbrederis has a decent shot at making the roster.

You want someone who can catch a pass so you want to sign a TE with inconsistent hands? That makes no sense to me...the Lions have enough problems with drops as it is...signing Cook would only make that problem even worse.

As I said in another thread...I also want the draft to be mostly defense and want a defensive player in the 1st round (since I doubt any of the top D-lineman fall I'm hoping for a solid LB to be there, specifically either Reddick or McMillan) but if the Lions really want to add a TE I'd rather them just take of the 3 excellent TE prospects available in this draft then sign an inconsistent one trick pony like cook...Howard is likely to be gone but Njoku and Engram will probably still be there, heck we could probably even trade down a good 5 spots or so and still get one of them.

(and yes I realize Engram is more of a WR/TE tweener than a pure TE but I'd still rather have him than Cook)
