Big Trade-Down Scenario

I think we'd have to give them picks to take Roman.

In all seriousness, if we were to trade up, Cleveland is the most likely trade partner along with KC. I doubt Al Davis or Seattle will trade with us, and I think Washington will want a king's ransom for the #4 pick, because they will value the #1 consensus OT quite highly now that they have McNabb.

EDIT: I wanted to add that another reason Cleveland may trade down is because rumor has it they're infatuated with Jared Odrick, but 7th overall is too high to take him, so they want to move down to get value for him.

Roman is not a 49er, not ours to trade.

I wouldn't hate this, but my problem with it is that we get a lot of good talent, but not much elite talent. Having two mid first round picks gives us the opportunity to pick two game changers. The players we would get after Iupati are all good players, but none are game changers.

Get real . . . neither is Iupati. Best is closer to being a game changer than Iupati, a guard.

But I agree with your concept. With the higher picks we have a better chance to flesh out the team with some real game changers. But I'm not sure that the team has the wherewithall to be able to identify those. We haven't done great in the past, but you have to be willing to roll the dice. Question is . . . will the Niners?

If Iupati turns into what some people think he will, he will be a gamechanger. Steve Hutchinson and Alan Faneca are about as valuable to their teams as most good left tackles are to their's. But ya, I'm a die-hard Cal fan so I've seen every game Best has played in. As a college RB, he was a stud, but he couldn't stay on the field in college. I don't think he'll stay healthy in the NFL plus I don't think he can get it done between the tackles.
I'm all for trading down if there is not an OT at 13 but not this. This is way to much. trade 13 down to huston at 20 plus there second, or something like that.

He has done it 3 times in the past. But there is little to no chance we make a 6 pick swap so...
in this deep of a draft

those 11 or 12 picks = gold

Means you could possibly restock your franchise in one draft (drafting wisely and coaching those players of course)
Wow, wild scenario!
our 2 1st round picks are worth more than an extra pick in the top 53. We only need some ieces to finish up our roster to be a SB contender. RT or LT, KR/PR and we can make a push for the sb. We should much rather have 1 or 2 impact players right away rather than a few 2nd round picks that may not contribute at all.
