The Ziggy interest was bare speculation, but Cole cited a GM source about us moving to 13 or 14. Doesn't mean it will happen, obviously, but it's more than writer speculation at least.
Yeah, and I think it's just a GM playing the guessing game or its a ploy for leverage. If there was any validity to it, I think there would be a name attached to the rumor by the GM. Saying they want to trade up to 13 or 14, when no one even knows who will even be at those spots, seems entirely too vague, and screams someone announcing "someone better jump ahead of us, cause the 49ers, and all their picks, could be looking at your guy!"
My guess is its the Panthers, who I don't believe are the lock for Sheldon Richardson as everyone seems to believe, are trying to coax the Saints or Giants or someone in trading up with them, so they can drop down a few spots, get a couple picks, and get the guy who they really want.
