Crazy Trading Draft

A lot of people have talked about trading down.  I would like to preface this post by stating that I am vehemently against trading down the 7th pick.  This year's top 10 is phenomenal and you don't pass on a future probowl player to stock up on future average players in the second. 

That said, if you're going to do something, you might as well do it right.  The following is a strategy to get a lot of good players to address as many issues as possible this year.  I didn't include future years because who knows how the CBA is going to work out and that just gets too complicated.  The math works out on the draft value point chart, remember this was just for fun.

Trade #7 and #107 to Detroit for #13 and #39 pick

Detroit's top need happens to be corner as well.  They've fallen in love with Prince and don't want Dallas to get him at #9, so they've got to trade up to get the player they want. 

 

Trade #13 to KC for #21 and #55 pick

Kansas City needs a #1 receiver and Julio Jones is somehow still availabe at #13!  Draft gurus can't believe he's fallen this far.  KC trades up to make sure the Rams can't get him. 

  

Trade #21 to Bills for #34 and pick #68
Bills desperately need talent, two first round picks would make sure they filled some serious holes for years to come. 

 

Trade #114, #169 and #185 to Carolina for #97

Carolina desperately needs depth.  So they decide to stock up on late round picks and hope to find a couple diamonds in the rough. 

 

 

Result of Trades - 49ers have the following picks: #34, #39, #45, #55, #68, #76, #97, #138, two 7th round picks and however many (if any) compensatory picks. 

 

49ers draft:

#34 Aaron Williams (CB),

#39 Christian Ponder (QB),

#45 Davon House (CB),

#55 Leonard Hankerson (WR),

#68 Colin Kaepernick (QB),

#76 DeMarco Murray (RB),

#97 Brooks Reed (OLB),

#138 Owen Marecic (FB). 

Pick up a Guard or Tackle in the 7th round along with a kicker and you’d have a solid draft.
