Vernon Davis: 1) cap room, 2) emotional immaturity (though much improved), 3) not on the same wave length as CK. Chemistry is important and he has never been a prototypical TE. Despite the "close locker-room appearance, I believe there was a real schism between Crabtree and Smith, Davis and Kaepernick. Davis finally saw the writing on the wall and jumped on the CK bandwagon but how real is this and will they get over themselves?
If they were able to take an Eifert or Ertz and a second tier guy (Escobar or Kelce) then VD would be expendable and the young TEs could learn and grow with Kaepernick.
But if Davis is now on board with CK and is OK with Crabtree being the main man...then a trade would be very doubtful.
Who would you be trading up to get? Offense? Defense? I honestly do not see a reason to trade up unless they really think there is a game breaker within reach--Austin? Milliner? Vaccaro? Lotulelei? Just don't see these guys as being that much better than the guys at 31 and 34. It would be more likely that they would trade some lower picks for another 2nd round selection.
