I would rather trade the low 1st and pick up a high second and third, then maybe trade a 3rd and 4th for a second. 3 second round picks. A tall WR posession, a Speedy returner and BPA
No, you didn't give up 3 quality players. You would have given up 3 players that also could bust or just be average. Pro Bowl players come from all rounds, and so do players that don't pan out.
People still get so hung up on round and pick #. None of that matters once players get in the NFL - Players like Frank Gore, Terell Owens, and Tom Brady should show that. If Harbaugh was convinced that Blackmon was the answer and going to be a star, I'd have no problem with giving up 3 picks to get him.
