All this talk about moving up for Alex Smith

I heard Vic Carucci on WWL Monday night and he made a comment about the 49ers trade-down dilemma that has me thinking we stay put at 16. He said scouts are telling him there\'s not a whole lot of difference between 1 through 20 in this draft. Trading away No.1 may be difficult since there are no Eli\'s or Gallery\'s in this draft.
I say we stay put. Looking at most mocks it appears outside of Derrick Johnson, the rest of the defensive players all look about even. A quality player will be there at 16. I just hope the BPA at 16 isn\'t a stinkin DE.

Hence, the talk of moving up for Derrick Johnson.

I agree staying put is safe bet here... trading back isn\'t a bad idea either... there isn\'t the top notch -difference makers- in this draft.

I think it would cost too much for us to do it. And Loomis is probably a bit gunshy after 2003.

I say leave the trade-ups to the pro\'s. Lets stay put and see who slips. We seem to do quite well with that strategy.

And there are those that think DJ may last to mid-1st round. (I\'m not one of them).

I agree with that.

Now that\'s funny. I agree with that too though. Just explaining why the talk was there for doing it.
