i did search sammy watkins and didn't see any thread when i did it unless i spelled his name wrong
There are 4 threads on him including a trade up thread already. http://www.49erswebzone.com/forum/nfl-draft/176755-trade-get-sammy-watkins/
I'm not a big fan of the search feature it's not that reliable but in this case found the threads. I think you have to be dead on, its picky.
As for trading up for him it would be similar to the Falcons trade up for Julio Jones. Would it be worth it for us? Only way I would consider it is if either we planned on not re-signing Crabtree or not re-signing Boldin. Just doesn't make sense if Crabtree is around long term and Boldin will be around 2-3 more years. We don't use our #3 enough to have all 3 of those guys unless it was just 1 year until Crabtree or Boldin left. It might put us over the top but in these long run it might hurt us because we could probably get 4 or so quality players for the price of one Watkins. I don't know, we don't throw the ball that much anyways. I guess it depends on what we give up. If we can stick to our 1st plus 2nds and 3rds this year then maybe but if we start talking a 1st and/or 2nd next year then no way. I wouldn't hate it especially if they don't plan on or think they can re-sign Crabtree long term (say Boldin is back) but I'm not necessarily for it either. Normally I'd say no just get a WR or CB in the 1st, the other in the 2nd... maybe a SS or C and build for the future. That being said maybe it is time to go big or go home. Get us a piece that can put us over the top. I'm sick of being so close and not getting #6. Maybe Watkins is that guy but even if we get him Roman probably wouldn't use him anyways and it might not put us over the top. That all being said I just don't see it happening anyways. It's not Baalke's style.
