Niners willing to trade Aubrayo Franklin for a 1st round pick

Member Milestone: This is post number 1,600 for 49ersalldaway126.
I know it's tempting but I wouldn't do this i'd rather keep him. To go to playoff we need a good D and we won't have a good D if we don't have a NT if we get a first round pick we have to use one on a NT either Dan Williams in 1st or Cody later. Honestly none will play like Franklin did last year.it would be different if we have a proven NT on outlr team or I'd we can require even a decent one in FA then I wouldn't mind doing this and packaging 2 picks to
get berry and use our other one on an OT but if we can't get a proven NT then my answer has to be no

Why Not try...and be easy on me for this one..but why not try Aubrayo Franklin for Donovan Mcnabb?

than use our 13th pick on Williams OT , 16th Pick on Odrick! and 2nd rounder on Gilyard. We just solidifed the QB, OLINE, DLINE, ANd our returning needs in 2 rounds? what say you?

You think McNabb can play Nose Tackle? Worth a try if you say so maybe?

No, we waited for a NT for long enough.

I don't know if I buy the theory, but the Tag being applied doesn't stop a trade. In fact, the tag would HAVE to be applied in order for the 49ers to prevent Franklin from becoming a free agent and being able to get anything in return.

IE....without the tag the Niners couldn't trade him, so tagging him is a must.

Yeah, I didn't think about that until after I pressed the send button. Oh well.

I just dont understand trading a key player without having a relatively proven back up plan. If we trade him and our first round goes through a NORMAL learning curve that could destroy our whole season.
Who would trade a 1st rounder for a 29 year old Aubrayo Franklin?
If we had three 1st round picks:

CJ Spiller
Bryan Bulaga
Dan Williams

I'd be happy with that.
I think if we do this it opens the door for us to trade up for Suh or McCoy that wouldn't be bad!
we put the franchise tag on him....
Trade Franklin for a 1st round pick use that pick to get McNabb from the eagles and we still have 2 1st round picks!

No way, not with McCluless doing the draft. Franklin is the real deal at the nose tackle position, why would you trade him?
