Originally posted by nickbradley: First, Russell Okung would slip to the Chiefs at #5 -- with the Skins taking Trent Williams. We then package the #17 and #49 to get the #5 and take Okung; this is the same trade that the browns accepted in 2009 (#17 and #52 for #5).
Next, we would trade the #13 to the Patriots for the #22 and #53. At #22, we take Iupati or Pouncey. With the #53, we take the best defensive back available -- there is a lot of value at DB in that area of the draft.
So, we end up with a franchise Left Tackle, a mauler of an interior lineman, and a great DB prospect. Okung, Iupati, and Kareem Jackson!
The trade from 2009 was #5 for #17 + #52 + Abram Elam (who started all 16 games at SS) + Kenyon Coleman (who started 13 games) + developmental QB Brett Ratliff. So not the same trade at all, KC won't do it for those exact terms, I'd bet you on that too.
Kareem Jackson has shot up draft boards and will be a top 40 pick and possibly even a 1st rounder, he in all likelihood won't be around at 52, would have to look more at Patrick Robinson, Brandon Ghee, Chris Cook or Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

That Pats HAVE to trade up; they have 13 or so draft picks -- can't bring that many guys into camp. The Pats could trade up for Dez Bryant, Rolando McClain, or any of the rush LBs.
No they can trade picks away for 2011 choices as well or for proven players on draft day. There hand is not forced into trading up in round 1, they could trade up in other rounds to secure players they truly desire. They have 1-1st, 3-2nd's, 1-4th, 1-6th (+1 comp in the 6th), 2-7ths (+3 comps in the 7th).
OK Then make it the #13 and #49, maybe throw in a 4th.
First, push the pause button on your Playstation controller and give Madden a rest.
Second, delete the bookmark on your browser for the draft value calculator page.
Third, before you post yet ANOTHER multiple trade scenario for the Niners, think WHY would any other team make any of these trades? WHO would the Patriots or Eagles or anyone else be targeting to make these trades?
Fourth, ask yourself a question. Would the Niners be able to get all the players they want and need by staying RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE? Is it possible? Of course, it is.
