I'm sure this semtiment is not popluar on this board, but unless Quinn, Miller or Peterson is there at 7 I would perfer to trade down (in other words I am just not that high on Prince Amukamara).
Anyway, I think I figured out a way to collect a ton of draft picks at positions in which there is value (much like the patriot do). These are the picks we would start the draft with currently: 7,45,76,107,114,138,169,185,199,200
1) The first trade goes as such: SF trades pick #7 --> HOU for picks #11 & 73
SF- Value: Pick 7=1500, SF Total:1500..........HOU- Vaule: Pick 11=1250, 73=225, HOU Total:1475
Explination: Houston had the worst D in the NFL and needs CBs badly, so they move up and get Amukamara to go across from Kareem Jackson
2) SF trades pick #11 --> SD for picks #18 & 61
SF- Value: Pick 11=1250, SF Total:1250..........SD- Vaule: Pick 18=900, 61=292, SD Total:1192
Explination: San Deigo's biggest needs are on the D-Line, with replacing Jacques Cesaire at DE across from Castilo. Apperantly, the Chargers are very high on JJ Watt who seems to be rising quickly. The Chargers, rathers than risk losing the prospect to the 49ers, are willing to lose a late 2nd rounder to ensure they don’t miss their prospect (just like they did last year with Ryan Mathews)
3) SF trades pick #18 & 169 --> CHI for picks #29 & 62
SF- Value: Pick 18=900, 169=24.8 SF Total:924.8..........CHI- Vaule: Pick 29=640, 62=284, CHI Total:924
Explination: Chicago gave up the most sacks last year and thier O-Line was atrocious. They jump ahead in the draft to pick up a quality LT (Tyson Smith or Anthony Castonzo, whom ever is still there). They need to protect their star QB.
4) Lastly, SF trades pick #29 --> DAL for picks #40, 109 & 2012 3rd Rounder
SF- Value: Pick 29=640 SF Total:640..........DAL- Vaule: Pick 40=500, 109=76, CHI Total:576, Plus the 2012 3rd Rounder
Explination: Dallas also had a weak O-line this year, yet really only need a RT to keep Tony Romo healthy. Dallas likes big, maulling O-Lineman and Benjamin Ijalana is just that man. He looked great at the senior bowl and would fit in perfectly with Bid D's system.
Now that we have completeted all the trade our picks look like this: 40,45,61,62,73,76,107,109,114,138,185,199,200 as well as a Dallas' 2012 3rd Rounder.
With these picks I suggest we perform the following selections:
40: Locker/Kaepernick (whoever we like better/Haubaugh can mold better), QB
45: Kendrick Burney, CB
61: Ras-I Dowling, CB
62: Marvin Austin, DE
73: Greg Little, WR
76: Sione Fua, NT
107: Owen Marecic, FB
109: Will Rackley, OG/OT
114: Thomas Keiser
138: Traded to TB for Josh Johnson
185: Aldrick Robinson, WR
199: Wes Byrum, K
200:Jason Teague, FS/CB
Josh Johnson Played under Harbaugh at San Diego State and has good accuracy and is Mobile (also adds competition for Alex Smith if he is resigned and lets us cut Carr).
I think this lineup gives us a good opportunity to both win the division this year and get better in the future. It improves our D while both giving us more weapons on offense as well as giving us a QB for Harbaugh to mold for the future.
