If the Niners wanted to set themselves up to take a run at Luck next season I could see them entertaining the idea of trading away our second pick again. It would give us a second first round pick in 2012 and possibly the ammunition to be used to jump up and get him.
I know it's a huge guessing game with lots of unknowns but you have to think they'll atleast talk about it.
Finally, with a looming hold out on the horizon this might be the best year to forgo some players for the following season.
I think the Niners could take a run at a veteran in the league this year and forgo the QB talent available. Maybe Orton or McNabb, who knows.
