If you want the truth it is because your idea is stupid.
How many teams continually trade their next years first rounders? There are two the Raiders and the Redskins and how successful have they been implementing this fool proof strategy.
You are trading two future players for one future player that may or may not even be any good in the NFL.
If trading away future first rounders is good strategy you would see more teams doing it. I wonder how Carolina and their fans feel about trading away their first rounder this year.
You are always going to have holes and needs to fill. Injuries, age, FA it is part of the game. Picking 4 times in the top 50 doesn't guarantee the west or a dynasty playoff run any more than picking 3 times in the top 50.
If there is a play maker the 49ers felt like they had to have and their wasn't any other way for them to get him except for giving up their first and second then they might do it, but to come out and say we need to make this trade without even knowing who would be available and how it would cause us to win the west is just wrong, and that is why everyone thinks your idea is bad and no one is on board with it.
