I'll play pretend and say he'll trade it for a 1st round next year to one of the big loser teams, like the Jags, Jets, Bills, Browns.
What do you think we could get for our first rounder this year? Could we possibly get a first next year and a 3rd round this year? That would be ideal IMO since this draft is deeper rather than top heavy..
I don't know why, but I have a feeling Baalke will pull the ultimate surprise of the draft and select the Honey Badger at 31. While I rather get him with one of our 3rd rounders, I will still support the move, because I think the kid will be a pro bowler damn near ever season; if he keeps his head on straight.

John Jenkins with one of the first two picks would probably suprise alot of people, some not so much.
He better be starting day one if we pick him with one of the first two selections.
IMO he would easily be the starting NT, But you cant really make statements like that with this FO. AJ Jenkins and LMJ were our first two picks last year after all.
Thats comparing apples to oranges when talking about first round receiver in '12 against possible 1st round NT in '13. The need is huge on the DL and if the FO does indeed select J. Jenkins in the first 34 picks, then I will HAVE to assume that the coaches believe they will be able to plug him in from day one and start. Especially because I believe he would be a slight reach in those slots.
Hopefully noone was counting on AJJ to climb our depth chart and see much of the field early last year.
