ie...

If you give someone your 3rd rounder this year, you'll get their 2nd rounder next year.
Thank you sir

Re: The Trade Back

Jimmy Johnson, former Dallas Head Coach, and probably a better talent evaluator and GM than Coach traded down often and won three (3) Superbowls...

It's all relative...

We have the most prolific passing game in NFL history; a dynamic, diversified stable of running backs, and an effective offensive line scheme...

What we are missing is above-average, supporting cast, defensive talent that can slow the opposite and create a +2 turnover margin...

I will leave you with these teams that traded down and could probably choke them selves for it now:

Chargers traded away Eli Manning
Rams trade away Bettis
New England traded away Jerry Rice
Colts traded away Marshall Faulk
Seahawks traded away Dorsett
Falcons swapped with Chargers to Got Vick instead of Tomlinson
I'm interested in making us better at the expense of making the 49ers better.

I love this idea!!! Why because both teams have multiple first round picks and are talents starved. This is a no brainer that we pit both teams against each other for Austin services. Hell one of them might be interested enough to fork over both of the first rounders in there possession!!!

Re: The Trade Back

Impossible to answer. We have to wait & see what happens on Draft Day. What trades are made before us & who is gone.
Trading down is a definite option

Re: The Trade Back

This years draft is deep at several positions that we have needs. The level of talent is not very different in the 15-30 range and players at the top of the second round are very close in value to the bottom of the first. This is the type of draft where 2nd rd picks are valuable. I hope some team falls in love with a player and trades up. This draft is going to be crazy players in the top five could very easily fall.

+1. It will be very intriguing to see how this plays out and who lands where, trade down and what not etc.

Boy, draft day can't come soon enough.

Re: The Trade Back

Seems like everyone wants to trade down this year.
