The San Francisco 49ers acknowledged they are looking to trade down. It’s not breaking news considering general manager John Lynch told the media the team was open for business with the pick.
That comment did not suggest desperation, but since then, we’ve seen all sorts of rumors about the pick. The latest is that the 49ers are high on North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, and will be look at using the No. 2 pick on him.
All the rumors have made for a fairly obvious smoke-screen, although Lynch has said these are all assumptions, and nothing has left the building. Whatever the case, there’s a lot of smoke out there. Someone put together a photoshop that just about summed this situation up best, and I thought I’d share it.
