The 49ers have a lot of draft picks in the draft. Somehow, the have more draft picks than available roster spots. Even if one of our coveted guys was available, would you be ok with entertaining the idea of trading back all the way to the end of the first round?
Based on point values of draft picks heres what I came up with
Lions First round pick (5)
Round 1 (31)
Round 2 (34)
Round 2 (61)
Round 3 (76)
Round 6 (167)
Heres my plan for the first 3 rounds including our picks:
31- Tank Carradine, DE Florida St.
34- Menilik Watson, OT Florida St.
36- Larry Warford, OG Kentucky
61- Terrance Williams, WR Baylor
67- Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB Auburn
76- Barett Jones, OG/C Alabama
While this may seem unheard of (for both sides), I think this is entirely pausible. San Fran is trying to get rid of draft picks, which leads speculation of them trading up. For the lions, maybe we take this chance to stock up on big talent in the first 3 rounds. In my opinion, the best value in the draft typically occurs at the top of the second round because of first round talent falling.
