Are the 49ers a likely trading down partner for the Bears?


After the trade of Alex Smith, the 49ers now have a reported 15 draft picks in 2013 including compensatory picks. The list of picks for the 49ers:

1. First round pick (31st overall): Own pick

2. Second round pick (34th overall): Pick from Kansas City in exchange for Alex Smith.

3. Second round pick (61st overall): Own pick

4. Third round pick (74th overall): Pick from Carolina in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The 49ers also acquired a sixth round pick in the 2012 Draft which was used to select Trenton Robinson.

5. Third round pick (94th overall): Own pick

6. Compensatory pick expected in the third or fourth round for the loss of Josh Morgan.

7. Fourth round pick: Own pick

8. Fifth round pick: The 49ers traded down from the third round to the fourth round during the 2012 Draft and gained this fifth round pick from Indianapolis.

9. Fifth round pick: Own pick

10. Sixth round pick: The 49ers traded down the fourth round in the 2012 Draft and gained this sixth round pick from Miami.

11. Sixth round pick: Own pick

12. Seventh round pick: Pick from Cincinnati in exchange for Taylor Mays.

13. Seventh round pick: Own pick

14. Compensatory pick expected in the seventh round.

15. Compensatory pick expected in the seventh round.

No way the 49ers will use all of those picks as they will most likely use them to trade up or use to trade for players like Darelle Revis. But for the sake of argument, let's pretend the niners would like our 20th pick (value 850). The niners 1st rounder (value 600), third rounder 74th overall (value 220), and fifth rounder (value 27.8) would be fair.

Take this a step further, I see possibly 1 qb taken in the 1st round (Geno Smith), most likely by Arizona. One of the teams that are clamoring for a qb may covet the Bears' 31st pick and be willing to trade more picks. I see Jacksonville as a team that will select a qb in the second round (33rd overall pick). Maybe the Jets or Bills would want to leapfrog past the Jags and take the second best qb out there before them? If the 31st pick is valued at 600, the jets could send the bears their second rounder 39 overall (value 510) and a 4th 103 overall (value 88).

This draft is supposedly deep in several areas, however, the top talent may be superstar worthy. Is it worth trading down, getting several possibly good players or 1 possible superstar (Cooper, etc.) at the 20th pick?

Be nice to me, this is my 1st post to this site!
