Something else to look forward to in the WAYYYYYY to long off season.
agreed, there is no way we wont field at least 2-3 different offers for him. I believe if the team is desperate enough, we could get a 2nd rounder tops, but idealistic value is a 3rd round pick.
If you look at the trade charts, I have a dream that is similar to the niners getting a third round pick for Alex. KC trades the niners the 33rd pick in the draft, the Ninerrs trade Alex Smith plus the Carolina third round pick, or pick 77, or worst case scenario the niners pick 64.
Niners then have
Pick 32- last pick of the day
Pick 33, first pick of day 2- if lots of players on board they like might be able to trade down a few spots or pick uip BPA.
Pick 64- assuming this is not in the trade
Pick from Carolina - traded to KC along with AS.
3 picks, 2 in the top 33, 3 in top 64, not bad. A GMS dream.
