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

Why would the 49ers with two first round picks look to trade Franklin away for another first-rounder who would come with a first rounder contract?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the Niners have to resign Vernon Davis and Patrick Willis next season? How many Brinks trucks are the Yorks going to back up anyway?

I don't get it.

This has crossed my mind as well...

No thanks. How long have we been looking for a NT? I'd rather keep what we have, and not risk trading in a central piece of last year's success for potential.

Because we need to think past next year.

The tag is a one year deal and if we can't get his agent to do a reasonable LT deal, than we're probably better off in the long run trading him than letting him walk next year for nothing.

We're not thinking long term right now and I'm glad for that. Next year we have a legit shot at being good. I'd rather have Franklin on board then another 1st rounder anyway. People think 1st round picks are gold. An established player, even at Franklin's age, is still better to have.
I just dont think its wise to trade a guy Willis want on the team especially when hes about to be a free agent!!
Oh... and can someone change the title of this thread??? Very misleading....

Hmm...

Trade Aubrayo for a first, trade two firsts for #3-#5, get Eric Berry + OT at 13? I'd do it.

No and No. I'm not gonna take a safety that high, not gonna give up a proven player that plays a VERY difficult position for a "what if".

Technically he still could get traded, but I don't think he will either.

THIS!! Seriously, we finally get a NT for out 3-4...one that could have made the ProBowl at that.........F'a 1st round pick... what if we end up with another Balmer.

I'm not slamming Balmer....but I'm happy with Franklin.

The pats traded Matt Cassel after he was franchised last summer. The tag doesn't affect anything.
At Fanklins age? Many great 3-4 NTs can play into there late 30s

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?

lol im one of those alex supporters so i have to say no but to be honest i doubt any team would trade an NT for a QB im sure they can trade him for the rams or another team theat needs a qb for a pretty high draft pick

Say we do move back and we go out and get Peppers!

Peppers wants to be a 3-4 OLB.
do any of next years contenders need a NT?? That would be the only way they would trade a 1st. Why would we want a 25-32 1st round pick? We'd get another flunky like Balmer. He's the Kwame Harris of "D".
