Trade Back?


Does anyone think they trade back to possibly pick up a second round pick?

A TB would most likely net us a 3rd round pick possibly another late round pick

To trade back means someone really wants to trade up. We are not at the most ideal spot for a team that wants to move up.

We should sticky the trade back threads.

1. Your team must have no one on their board left thats rated higher than their pick.
2. You must have a dance partner.

Hope that helps.

49ers 2nd 1st round pick and late 2nd round pick actually equal within a few points of our 1st. Our best bet is someone who wants a WR as Austin and Patterson are projected to go right after us.

re: Trade Back?


So we get one true starting OLB in FA and you guys think we should trade back? No way, I think they get the best OLB available and invest in the position for the future.

Reasoning:

1) Butler has a dynamite 2 years with us. When free agency hits in 2015, he commands top tier salary. We either let him walk or we pay him. Considerations of this example: Graham (if franchise tagged next year) is up for Free Agency and probably concerned about getting a long-term deal. We'll have to pay potentially two franchise players the same year, could get tight due to the back-loading of current contracts.

2) Butler doesn't live up to the hype, and he sucks. We spend the greater part of 2 years never being able to lock down the most important position in the 3-4.

If we get a OLB in this year's draft, we'll be better positioned for the future in both of those two examples. Yes, I know we have a lot of good players projecting to the OLB position. But they will be taking a huge risk by not picking up a true pass rushing OLB when there are so many available in this year's draft.

Exactly. Butler probably wont be a long term solution. He is more of a bandaid right now. We need to use this time to start grooming a OLB

While I agree with this, we have a lot of holes to fill on our defense, as well as a few on O. We need some playmakers on rookie contracts and trading back would net us these. A late first and late second could be a starter and a solid backup/situational starter.

Gallette and Wilson could be ready to go at that point. Plus there is talk about that Southern Miss LB and our interest in him. Not sure where he is projected though.

Unless it is with either Minnasota or San francisco I don't see the benifit of trading back.

Best way to improve a defense is to get to the QB. In a 3-4, that's the OLB position. The draft is a bit of a toss-up, regardless of when you get to pick - but I'd rather them go for more of the "sure thing" at that spot. Again, yes, we have holes in the defense that I'd like to see repaired. But a strong pass rush is a bad secondary's best friend. I think the Lewis signing was a good investment in the secondary as well.

quote:

as well as a few on O


LT: Greatest need imo. I'm hoping we still pick up someone in Free Agency for this hole. Wouldn't mind 3rd or 4th being used for this as well.

WR: They still drafted Toon last year. I still think he was a good pick and will likely work out. But Payton is a genius at finding diamonds in the rough on offense.

Backup QB: Liability not to shore up this position. If Brees goes down it's pretty much a bumpy road for us no matter what.

I bet we trade up and give a lot to get a left tackle

Correct...
If a player is available that a
16-32 team wants 15 is not that bad a place to trade up to. Not top ten money and still enough quality to be worth something to the right team. JMO

I think we stand pat and take BPA, especially if one of the big three OLB/LT are there. Our OLBs are all unproven so i don't see them passing up an elite prospect if they are still on the board at 15.

Austin is big reason why. RT @MarcSesslerNFL: 49ers, Dolphins, Vikings looking to trade up in the draft? LINK

NFL draft buzz: 49ers, Dolphins looking to trade up?

Game changers, like Tavon Austin, could tempt teams such as the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and pick-rich San Francisco 49ers, to trade up in next month's draft, Daniel Jeremiah says.
