Why Not Henry Melton?

He's expected to be franchise tagged, but with our plethora of picks, why don't we work out a trade for Bears DT Henry Melton? He's 26, ferocious, and fills potentially our biggest need. Teams can trade the rights to a franchise tagged player if they sign the tender. There's a speculative article on just this very trade happening between the 49ers and Bears.

Typically, a current year draft pick is worth a future year draft pick plus an additional round, i.e. a 2nd this year is worth a first next year. As a result, we could ship #31 and #61 to Chicago for Henry Melton.

This would be an amazing deal and we would still have pick #34 to take a safety or wide receiver.
