The thing is...the 7th rounders are mostly throwaway's, plus 3 of those 13 picks are compensatory picks...ie...they can't be traded whatsoever. I also managed to pick up a couple additional picks in the 2014 draft where the 49ers will already have 10+ picks once again, this idea that you keep trading picks back, regardless of the situation at hand doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. If your a team is building up, that is fine, if you're a major Superbowl contender with actual needs, you fill those needs and build up your depth now.
With the trades I've made, this would be the 49ers situation in 2014
1st rounder, 2nd rounder, KC 2nd or 3rd rounder, 3rd rounder, 3rd round comp pick for Goldson, 4th rounder, 4th round comp pick for Walker, 5th rounder from Jets, 5th rounder from Dallas, 5th rounder, 5th round comp pick for RJF, 6th rounder, 7th rounder.
That is 13 picks in 2014.
