First Round TE traded... can this be VD's Future?

According to Espn the Browns traded their #6 Overall pick in the 2004 draft, Kellen Winslow to the Bucs. Obviously they did not see enough production from their starting TE to keep him around for another year. This brings to mind another high draft pick at the TE position who has not met expectations from his team or fans. Let's remember Winslow only played 2 games his rookie and sophomore seasons so they have played the same amount of years. To compare stats:

                                    KELLEN WINSLOW                                  VERNON DAVIS

                                               6 yrs                                                            4yrs

                      (played 2 games from 2004-2005)

Games:                                      44                                                             37

Receptions:                             219                                                          103

Yards:                                    2,459                                                       1,132

Touchdowns:                             11                                                             9

 

With Delanie Walker as a back up and potential starter can VD be seen as trading bait in 2010 if he has decent numbers in the 2009 or 2010 season as his contract expires? All eyes will be on VD this year, if his production does not improve look for history to repeat itself and the niners be rewarded with a couple of draft picks for the 2010 or 2011 draft.
