Would you trade our 1 and 2 for DeCastro?

Probably no DeCastro in our future then, considering even this price might be too steep from our perspective.

If the cost is ONLY our 1st and 2nd? ... hmmm... maybe so.

Next year's second?

He needs to break the law quickly. He's got a month.
It would take next years first rounder + #30 to get within range of DeCastro.
They wouldn't be able to keep DeCastro and Iupati long term if DeCastro is really that good and I for one would rather have Iupati on the left than DeCastro on the right.

This, look what happened to NO. I'm still not a big proponent one spending high picks, much less multiple ones, on interior lineman. Them, S, and TEs you can always find later in the draft.

Definitely a fair point.

The Niner FO should blackmail DeCastro with a dead hooker...Godfather style!

They had the same 2 guards last year and did not win the Super Bowl. They also had to let the better of the two walk this year and are now in the same position as we are. Spending a top 20 pick on another interior lineman would weaken the rest of our roster long term.

As much as I like DeCastro....No. We can get a good RG in the later rounds to compete with Kilgore.

Somebody get a girl to say he raped her, quick. He doesn't actually have to do it....we just need it to happen a week before draft and then back out the day after.

roster turnover is part of the game. i, in no way am saying we should trade up to get decastro, but if they did manage to get him, he would be signed to a 4-5 year contract and iupati is signed for another 3 years so there would be a few seasons before the money issue would be a problem
It looks like the Niners will have to settle for the next best pair of offensive linemen in Konz and Zeitler from Wisconsin as their potential first selection. DeCastro will not make it past the Bears.

It can be done. Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks were picked up in the 4th and 5th rounds respectively.
