New England already has the 33rd pick via Carolina (idiots), so let's call it a straight-up $17 and #33 for #7 -- dead even in the value chart.
If New England wants to make a play for Amukamura or Quinn at #7, and Harbaugh has identified a QB of the future in the second round (I'm looking at you, Ponder/Stanzi/Devlin) -- then we should execute. New England is gunning for a CB, a pass-rusher and (possibly) a running back. They would only execute this trade if they had confidence in getting Mark Ingram in the late-first round. It would be a win-win.
A dream draft would be to pull this trade off and still get Jake Locker at #17, get CB Jimmy Smith at #33, then take OLB Jeremy Beal at at #45.
That would be an NFL draft on scale with Bill Walsh circa 1986.
