TRADE UP? The Raiders are open for business at #5, but do the 49ers pull the trigger?

That's a 1st, three 2nd rd picks and two 3rd rd picks to get to #5. Maybe Baalke could cut a deal and save us next year's 2nd rounder but I still don't think it would be worth it.

I could see packaging a 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounder to move up but anything beyond that in a draft this deep with soo much talent in rounds 2 and 3 would be a waste. If Evans drops to 10 or later we might have a shot at him.

That value chart is outdated and really meaningless now. Every year is different and with the depth of this draft those picks mean a lot more than normal.
No way. There's too much potential with the picks we'd have to give up. Baalke would basically have to give up half of our picks or more just to snag a single player.

That is a ton to mortgage, plus the fact it would immediately put pressure on that player to perform....

Probably not the best case scenario, but damn it would be exciting.
Dude, look at if from an economical standpoint

The opportunity cost of us trading up that high is too high for the benefit we could obtain at staying at pick 30
no thanks
Every year the same ... Lets trade up for a key player (Offensive Player who catches/carries ball). No need for QB or RB so this year "sexy" pick is moving up to pick a WR. You see this same them throughout the site. Really after picking AJ just two years ago. You think we will package multi-picks and risk another failed round 1 WR?????? I think a failed prospect later would mute some of the criticism (SF FO can't judge WRs)

Two failed round 1 WRs in 3 years (plus we packaged a bunch of picks) Baalke would need to find a new line of work.

^^^^^ I don't think these guys make fear-based decisions. If they have a chance to take an impact receiver in the first, that's all that's going to matter. AJ Jenkins is old news.
throw in LMJ to keep a third

It would be huge pressure. Even if the player was pretty good it would be seen as a bad move. He would have to be a pro bowler or better and god help us if he's just a solid player. a 1st, three 2nds and two 3rds for a pretty good player? That would be a bust. Plus the #5 pick is a big cap hit. It would pretty much guarantee we had to cut Crabtree loose. There is no rookie cap benefit for the very top picks in the draft.
