I could easily see them picking a WR at 30, like Randle or if a guy like Michael Floyd were to dropI could see the 9ers picking that WR. There is a lot of depth at DT and DE so if teams wanted a guy like that they could have one. Atleast 3 QBs are going to go in the first, and then there are 4 or 5 1st round calibre CBs. Teams always draft OLine too. So you don't know. But if the WR we want isn't there we could just trade back for another 2nd and 3rd or something anyway. I wouldn't mind doing that and getting a CB like Norman and 1 of the WRs in the 2nd.
If we dont have anyone on our board rated as a 1st round pick then I agree Baalke should trade out of the spot for a team looking to grab the last top tier player at X position (like we did with Staley), or maybe a QB needy team wants to jump ahead to grab Tannehill, who knows.
But your right in the wrong way about not knowing what will happen and who could be there when we pick because there is still so much to play out. But all we have as fans is the information currently available... and currently if the top 3 are gone by our pick there is less value at WR then at other positions based on the current projections. Randle only cracks the 1st round if he blows up the combine, Floyd only falls if he gets busted, hell Jeffry could show up with a 6-pack and run high 4.4's low 4.5's and be taken before Wright, Floyd, or Randle... no one knows.
What we know right now is Ashlon's fat, Blackmon & Wright are fighting to be the 1st WR picked, Floyd is still #3 and has seperated himself the rest of the pack and the rest are fighting to be picked after those three. It could all change with one 40 time, an injury during a workout, positive drug test or dui within the next couple months but that info isnt available yet, and until then everyone is gonna have a different equally valid opinion... (unless you dont want Fleener at 30 cause then your just plain wrong,
