San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said his team had a specific player in mind with the 34th choice in the 2013 NFL draft.Perhaps the team will get that player with the 40th choice instead.The 49ers traded the 34th pick to Tennessee for the 40th and 216th choices, plus a 2014 third-rounder. Adding a third-round pick in 2014 continues to set up the 49ers for the future. Losing six spots in the second round was no problem for a 49ers team with few holes in its roster.
