what about both? we could trade 2014 1st for a 2nd. then trade our 3rds for 2nds next year, for example. Would leave us with no 1st next year, but 4 2nds. If it allowed us to target a specific player for this year, why not?
This is what the San Diego Chargers did. It is insane!!! why would you do that?? It makes zero sense, especially when next years draft has more talent. Now if next years draft had less talent and this draft was deep, it might make sense.

but what would you guys say if we traded our #1 next year, for a 2nd round pick this year?
I know it sounds greedy, and a borderline shoot from the hip kind of move , but this is a very deep draft , we could easily shore things up with the picks we have now, but an additional 2nd rounder would be a nice luxury, maybe we could even grab another QB to groom for down the road, another quality pass rusher, a big physical corner, an explosive tight end to team with Davis ....we have a chance to build a serious ass kicking machine, and after losing the superbowl , we are in win now mode, everyone will be aiming to beat us down, and we could be deep at every single position and have the players to do a lot of things others team could only dream of doing
just an idea ...whats your opinion??? ...no flamethrowers please
If someone fell that they really loved, on top of the selections they already made in the 31-34 range, why not?
I know everyone seems to think that this is a bad way to build a team long term, especially when we have so many picks otherwise. But, consider last years team (year before). We were the best team in the NFL when we lost to the Giants. Only the resurgence of Kaep leads people to think that our window is big. But you never know what each year will bring. Hell, Willis could be struck by a meteor and then what do you do?
You make moves to win while your window is here. I'm not worried about rolling over picks every year so that we have 20 picks in 2018.... we want to win now, we have the players to win now, if someone falls and is worth it, Baalke should make the move
Oh No. The other way around. We want to stockpile picks. With an abundance of picks, we can target certain "49ers" and even trade down more and trade 'out' more bevause of having so many picks to rely on.
I don't like the late round trade ups too much like the Kilgore deal. We lost two picks and its a crapshoot with late rounders. The goid thing is that Baalke hits on those late rounders sometimes.
But the value will/should always be to mirror last years draft: trade down and trade 'out'
I'm pretty much never a fan of doing that. The only time I'd be cool with it is if we were desperate for a franchise QB, which we clearly aren't.
Why would we want to move up in a deep draft that isn't great at the top? We have 7 picks in the first 4 rounds. That's 7 picks at spots that have a good chance for impact players.
I wouldn't mind moving up once or twice to grab someone we really like that has slipped, but only using this years picks (& maybe including late future picks). With our plethora of picks, I'd be much more inclined to not use'em if there isn't someone we love at the spot and start hoarding for next year. We should aim to have more/higher picks than everyone every year.
