There is no question in my mind that the Niners should attempt to trade down in round 1 with either or both of their picks. I dont see a great OT that will be sitting there around 11 and think we can move down and get an additional 2nd rd pick.
I think if we stay at #11 and a guy like Joe Haden is there we should take him. A talent like that at a position of need would be hard to pass on in my opinion. I just dont see Trent Williams being worthy of that high of a pick. There is no doubt, however, that the Niners do need to get an OT with one of their first 2 picks in the draft.
Maybe we should trade back into the 2nd or 3rd for more picks, with one of the high picks? If there's not an OT that's worth taking by our 1st pick, why not? We could trade the higher one and keep the one later on, get a 2nd and 3rd or whatever, and get 2 extra players OLineman, and see who sticks. Sebastian Volmer on the Pats was a 2nd rounder and he's their starting LT at the moment.
