traded our 2012 7th round pick for Seahawks 2013 4th round pick and Colts 2014 7th round pick
You have to remember that the 49ers wanted to sign Chris Harper off the Seattle practice squad. To do that they have to put Harper on their 53 man roster and that means someone on the 53 man squad has to be released or traded.
So, the question is, is it better to trade a guy off the 53 and get something for him or release him and get nothing.
I think if you look at these two transactions together, you see the 49ers trading a 2012 7th round pick for the Seahawks 2013 4th round pick and the Colts 2014 7th round pick.
From that perspective, its a good deal.
