What do the 9ers need to give up to draft Fleener?

OK i am on the Fleener Steamer and there is no way in hell that he is on the board when we pick at #30. But i want this guy on our team more then any wide receiver, more then any offensive line man, more then any defensive back. This guy will be a great. With that said, what is a fair trade to move up in the draft? I'm not even sure if another team would make a trade, but it's nice to dream...

I say swap 1st rd picks, this years 3rd and next years 1st for the next big Fleen. (<<< i felt wrong typing that)

I personally believe we will make it back to the NFC championship game, so next years first wont be a high pick anyways.

EDIT - Keep in my mind this is what i would give up to get Fleener. Whether its crazy or irrational or whatever. I don't see much value in next years 1st or this years 3rd given that team needs are very minimal and i am betting that this year will be a great year. I do see Fleener as a luxury. If the team stays the course, we can afford luxury. Thats just my opinion on a player i see to be a game changer.

I think he'll be there at 30
-____- Fleener costs 2 1st rounds and a 3rd?? We might as well throw in our 2013 1st rounder and go for Luck/Griffin
If he's not there then we trade or draft someone else.

That would be one very low first round (if the niners are as good in 2012) and a third. If we swap picks in the first we still get a first rd pick.

I see that. but your saying fleener is as valuable as the 1st we pick him with, then giving another first, and then a 3rd round pick, (3rd round where we picked up guys like Frank Gore and Kendall hunter).

No Thanks, you need your coffee bro lol
my bad.

He'll be there at 30, if he isn't who cares, he is a luxury for us, we would be better of getting a guard, wr or BPA.

OK so we got a great back and a good backup in the third round. But how good were they when we needed a 3rd down conversion? How important is having a guy you know can pick up a first down. I really think Fleener could step in day 1 and make a difference. He knows the offense.
We picked up Kendall Hunter in the 4th round.
gots to get me some fleener weiner

I have written in other threads that Fleener would be a game-changer in the 49er offense. I won't repeat my argument here, only to say that rule changes to protect defenseless receivers make a tall receiver like Fleener an essential part of any truly good receiving corp.

That having been said, I do not believe he is worth spending more than a 3rd to move up to get him. The need for a RG/Center is just as great as a tall receiver, hence, BPA is the best route to travel.

However, in a draft that has a lot of talent on the top end, I would not be surprised if Baalke gives up some mid-round choices to move up for a player they feel will be an impact guy. This team does not have a glaring needs hence an impact guy would be worth sacrificing some "depth" choices if it is the right guy. As much as I like Fleener, I am not certain he is worth giving up what the OP suggests.
Fleener is so overrated it is starting to get ridiculous. One of the beat writers recently stated he was the best receiver in the draft and was worth a top ten draft pick. He can't block and he is strictly a straight line speed guy. Not worth trading anything for. He is a role player at best in the NFL.
If we trade up it better be for Michael Floyd.
