The 49ers already have received calls from other teams willing to swap picks. Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/2012/04/19/4425576/49ers-gm-goes-with-his-gut-in.html#storylink=cpy

mmmmm
I just dont think Randle is a first round prospect anymore. I see him as a 2nd rounder but will probably go early.

Negatory... the overaction about this quote is pretty amazing. Every team has "one player" in mind with their first pick... it's called Plan A, or "in a perfect draft," if he gets drafted they move on to Plan B. If you wanna believe everything he is saying you gotta add in "we think he will be there when we pick." That takes away Fleener who is being dubbed as the next Tony G..

The notion about this quote having a "trade rape" effect is also bogus, just like in free agency they also assigned values to players in the draft and wont go over that value.
As much as we're hoping it's Stephen Hill or Coby Fleener, what if it's Alshon Jeffery

He wouldn't be my first choice either, but if he was the pick with Fleener and Hill off the board, I'll accept that.

I can see why dont get me wrong. I am a big SEC/Bama fan so I like to see alot of guys from the conference go in the draft. The guy has lazy written all over him to me though. I could be wrong and hope I am. I dont want to downplay anyone and I would hate for people to do it to me if I were preparing for the draft to be put a label upon.

That's assuming that's who HE wants. Just because YOU want him doesn't mean that's who HE is talking about.
This tells me they will not trade up or down from 30:

"We certainly have more than one person (in mind). But there is one in particular that we feel will be there. And if he is, we'll be prepared to make the pick."


I get from this that they have some more preferable prospects that may be taken earlier that they would pick if those drop

"have more than one person (in mind)"

but they will also be very happy with picking another of their options that probably won't get picked

"But there is one in particular that we feel will be there."
