Now that Scott is taking an "extended leave of absence" all of you draft gurus I can guarantee you there will be no trades for the 49ers. This draft will run on auto pilot unless someone offers the 49ers a HUGE windfall of picks for a spot. Expect the 49ers to not wheel and deal.
I didn't really expect any trades anyway. The only scenario I thought we might make a trade is if we didn't get a tackle at 13, and decided to let someone move up to 17 so we could move down to the bottom of the first and pick up Rodger Saffold.

you would expect nothing good to happen even if we still had McCloughan.
I would rather have Scot M. than no GM weeks before the draft. Do you see any other team in the league making moves like this weeks before the draft? We are the envy of the league. Our moves are like no other organization.

That was friggin awesome!
I can see why someone would think no trades, but I think there could be some aggressive moving up for us. If Mike and Co. see a prospect slipping, they will have the stones (and firepower) to go get them. We have lots of average bodies that fills our depth chart, but we should be shooting for quality over quantity. We don't need 8 draft picks this year. I say, move up (not in the top 10, please) and get the targets we want.

So update those "Trade" mocks gents!
I disagree. The Carolina trade only happened cause they called us and everyone wondered what took Scotty so long to pull the trigger. There stands a pretty good chance we won't initiate a trade. But if someone like Carolina comes calling......
