I was once a normal kid
Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
For us, we are looking for rookies to step in at T, CB, and a few other positions. They are building for a run this year before Aldon Smith, Iupati, and Kaepernick put them in salary cap hell. This is their year.
We are building for the future. Getting seven rookies with a chance to make an impact will keep us out of salary cap hell. Next year, we'll challenge for the Conference. This year, its just to make the playoffs.
Think of our offense like North Korea. You can have the weapons, but if you can't utilize them, you're just a fat head on a wall.

If they offered anything near your prediction, hell yeah I'd be happy if that landed in our laps. I don't see San Fran making that big of a jump for a planner like that, though. He obviously has the potential to be a fantastic playmaker in the NFL, but he's still a gamble like most home run hitters are. Then again, they have had a little arms race with Seattle and the Seahawks just got a shiny new Percy Harvin
So because I don't know I should accept any wild-ass theory for what's technically possible? Sorry, no sale.
The 49ers didn't get to be as good as they are being stupid, and they'd be stupid to throw away an extra third rounder when everyone at the top of the draft is desperate to trade down and is more than likely willing to accept fair market value for the picks or less.
Love these hypotheticals, though. One player away, needing to spend an extra third rounder or they can't get their savior, making assumptions about us being GMs. Funny stuff.
