Sal Paolantonio of ESPNews has reported that 5 teams have contacted the New Orleans Saints and are interested in moving up in the NFL Draft.

The San Francisco 49ers were mentioned as one of the teams that are showing interested in moving to the No. 2 spot to grab running back Reggie Bush. It is unknown how much the 49ers would be willing to part with to obtain the former USC star.

This all started when the Houston Texans announced that they have agreed to terms with North Carolina State defensive lineman Mario Williams and will draft him instead of Bush.

According to Bush's agent, the Saints have already said that they will select Bush with the second pick in the draft.

ESPNews has also reported that the 49ers are calling around in an attempt to move up and guarantee to be in position to draft Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk or Maryland tight end Vernon Davis should a deal with the Saints fall through.

Will 2021 mark a return to form for 49ers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu?

On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures.

For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.
