Atlanta wants to trade up to grab a CB early
Whether we get the 13th overall pick from TB or not I would look to trade our 9th to Atlanta for their 1 (30th) (2) 60th and (4) 127th in 2013 and their 2nd and 3rd in 2014. According to the trade value charts and based on where you can project Atlanta will pick next year (25-32) the value would be even.
If we get the 13th overall pick from TB I would look to move back in a trade with SF. According to the draft value chart their (1) 31st, (2) 61st, (3) 74th and (4) 128th would be near a perfect match. It is widely known that the 49ers need to package picks together b/c they have a ton of picks and this would be one way they could move them.
If the TB deal goes through as a 1, 3 and 5 this year and we make those trades we could have these picks:
1 (30) LSU S Eric Reid
1 (31) Alabama RT DJ Fluker
2 (39) FSU QB EJ Manuel
2 (60) Syracuse OG Justin Pugh
2 (61) LSU OLB Sam Montgomery
3 (72) UCLA HB Jonathan Franklin
3 (73) UCONN CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson
3 (74) W. VA WR Steadman Bailey
4 (106) CIN TE Travis Kelce
4 (127) ORE ILB Kiko Alonso
4 (128) Rice TE Vance McDonald
5 (141) Illinois OG Hugh Thornton
5 (147) FSU OLB Brandon Jenkins
6 (178) Georgia CB Sanders Commings
7 (215) Stony Brook HB Miguel Maysonet
Plus an extra 2nd and 3rd round pick in 2014
This would give us 11 picks in the first 5 rounds. Now obviously I know that this is merely a pipe dream and the chances of this happening are slim to none but all it takes is a couple of phone calls. The compensation I'm proposing is dead on so there is no disputing that. It's really just a matter of Atlanta and the 49ers targeting players at the 9th and 13th picks.
We know Atlanta is targeting a CB and at 9 there is a good chance no CB's will be off the board so that is a perfect scenario for them.
San Francisco needs interior linemen to play in their 3-4 set. They have an unproven NT in Ian Williams and Justin Smith and Ray McDonald are getting old. They also need some safety help after losing Goldson to TB. A guy like Vaccaro would most likely still be available at 13 as well. Some of the other guys they could target at 13 are: DT Star Lotulelei, DT Sheldon Richardson or DE Margus Hunt. The first 2 of which will definitely be off the board by 31, Hunt may be there but his stock is rising.
This would give the Jets, a team lacking young talent, a ton of young players who can contribute right away and in the future. This is a franchise changing draft if all of those trades go through.
