Appreciate the effort, but I always am skeptical of the "multiple trade" mocks. The Niners have EIGHT picks this year plus another comp pick coming. They don't need to trade down for more picks. Also passing on Trent Williams for a luxury pick in Spiller does not float my boat from the start.
Niners have pulled off multiple trade on draft day before and so have many teams, it's nothing new. And with the comp pick it brings us to 9 picks, in my mock i have us gettin 10 picks. It's not an issue of more picks, it's a thing about getting more picks in the first two rounds. Many 1st round talent guys got pushed back by so many underclassmen declaring for the draft.
While you're right. All these trades are possible. You have to remember who our GM is. It would take New Orleans and New England's GM calling and making the offer. Scotty and going to negotiate s**t! With that said. New England's GM would take him to the cleaners. no way that would be his offer. Someone may be able to negotiate that from him, but not Scotty.
Good point, krizay. The Niners of the Bill Walsh era pulled off those kinds of trades. Scott Pioli and the new Patriots GM have pulled off those types of trades. Ozzie Newsome with the Ravens can pull off that type of trade. Except for the trade last year to get the Panthers # 1 pick this year, McCloughan hasn't been big on trading down to get more picks. I still think the Niners should stand pat unless someone presents them with a big opportunity like last year.
