Still though, this draft is filled with players in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds with talent. That is where this draft shines, so who would want to get rid of one of those picks for someone who isn't a special 1st round talent, especially at a position that isn't highly sought after as first round picks.


You're not understanding the point...it's not what you think of the draft...it's what that team does.

SF is stacked with picks and few holes...they can afford to burn a few in a trade up for a guy they covet.


Very true. I can see SF make a trade up like that to get someone they covet. Don't they have like 13 picks?


Yeah really their biggest need is arguably an elite reciever type to go with Crabtree

Well, while this WR class is nice, there arent any truly special talents IMO. Ive heard some argue Tavon Austin, Patterson and even Hopkins, but while they are great, none of them are cant miss guys, or guys that will definitely be special in this league.

The 49ers will definitely be wheeling and dealing. I expect them to make a few trades that get them some extra picks next year, too.
