Because we have Kaepernick and we aren't looking for a starting QB. If we were then by all means I'll throw out a 2nd and 3rd to move up to secure him. Hard to justify a 2nd and a 3rd or even a 2nd on a QB when we will likely need a few CB's, a WR and a SS in the first 3 rounds. If Whitner and/or Brown were re-signed then I would think about using an early pick on a QB.
So let's see... we essentially need 1 WR... 1 CB... and 1 SS early on... and even the WR need is debatable. We would still have this if we traded a 3rd rd pick for a QB in the early 2nd...
rd 1 - CB/S (#30)
rd 2 - QB (say #56 + #93 for #43)
rd 2 - S/CB (#61)
rd 3 - WR (#77)
... and this still leaves us with 8 or 9 picks left. Probably have two 4ths there should we get the comp pick, right?
Is this trade up keeping us from addressing our needs?
