Golden Nuggets: 49ers will have a hard time trading back

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday, April 18th 2017

Good morning! Fooch flashed the Pat-signal and I arrived to give you the Nuggets on my non-designated day because you, the readers deserve to see me more than one day a week in Nugget-land, and Fooch offered me a Grand Mac if I’d do it and pry myself away from my Nintendo Switch and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you haven’t had one of those burgers, it’s like a Big Mac, but it’s even bigger. So if you are familiar with the awesomeness of the Big Mac (and haven’t watched Supersize Me or read Fast Food Nation to kill your craving of it) the Grand Mac is like the ultimate in McDonald’s burger. Is it the worst thing for you? Probably. Considering I just finished the Insanity workout, I can eat junk and survive.

Doesn’t look like the 49ers are going to trade back. That second round pick just isn’t juicy enough, or at least as juicy as the Grand Mac I’m promised. Besides Myles Garret, who apparently isn’t worth throwing real estate at Cleveland for, there isn’t any reason to trade up to the 2nd pick. It also doesn’t help you when you’ve got a ton of holes and teams behind you are looking to trade back for a cheaper price. And of course, to make matters worse, everyone’s trying to get rid of their early round pick. Remember last year when everyone was trying to get into the top five for the hopes of either Goff (ewww) or Carson Wentz? Yeah, you don’t hear much about any players this year. Goff and Wentz had their detractors last year, for sure, but you just don’t have anyone as dedicated top-5 picks. They are all over the place. Good luck trading out of that.

And yes, for those of you new to the program: welcome to the late offseason. This is the time where Pat talks about food and video games (his other two pastimes) on Niners Nation. Football can’t come back soon enough.
