Trading out of the first round

I think we are in a position now where that may be more beneficial for us at least this year. The only position on the field we may need a rookie to step up in is Oline and I think there is quality lineman outside the first round. We are in a great position of moving out of the first round this year and getting a first round pick for next year. Two first round picks is never a bad thing considering we are probably going to have a low pick next year.
Really depends on whoiis available when we pick and where we'd trade back to.

If we could trade back into the top 10 in the 2nd round and get an additional 3rd or a high 4th, then maybe.

This...There are a lot of variables. I trust Baalke and Harbaugh with make a good decision.

Most logic trade partner: Carolina. In need of a CB, they could trade up with us to get Gilmore and we get their 2nd and 3rd. They leave day one with two needs filled, NT and CB. We walk away with the 9th pick of the 2nd and 3rd. Plus, we don't play them. Only way I wouldn't do this is if Fleener, Konz, Wright, or first round calibur players that would instantly impact us are still there.

I think Miami - who are in desperate need of a QB - can trade up from their 2nd round pick to our pick + give us their 1st round pick in next year's draft. It depends on how much they like Weeden and if they are able to land Tannehill or not.

Personally, I like this year's draft - and so I'd prefer keeping the pick but if a team like Miami comes up - it will be tough to say no because we could potentially land a top 10 pick year.

Right. If there is nobody there at 30 we like, we need to trade back, but noy so far back that we can't draft someone we have our eye on.

I'm not sure why we'd want to trade out of the pick. It's not like we need the extra players or have a void of tallent on the team that we neeed to fill with several 2nd or 3rd rd guys. Now if a team makes an offer we can't refuse, then sure; otherwise take BPA for need. Receiver, Guard, RB, etc...
I'd say it's possible...especially if it gives Baalke a good shot at one of the top OG's and a RB like Doug Martin.
There are three potential trade down possibilities in the second round. Cleveland, Miami and Buffalo all have multiple picks in either the 3rd or 4th round and they all have needs for WR's. The Niners should be able to trade back to the #42 pick at worst and get at least one additional pick from these three trading partners.

Philly appears to be the only NFC team that would be a logical choice as a trading partner. They have two 2nd's, a 3rd, and a bunch of 6th round picks.
