Oh this is TOO easy to predict

Postby nsulham » Thu Apr 15, 2004 10:58 am

From Fanball.com:

The 49ers are not hiding the fact that they are in rebuilding mode and looking for as many draft picks as possible. The team is also frank about needing a wide receiver, and since the 2004 draft class runs deep at that position, the 49ers are looking to trade down. "Philosophically, [head coach] Dennis [Erickson] and I both feel that, over the next two years, we would like to try to accumulate as many picks as we can," general manager Terry Donahue told the San Francisco Chronicle. "So we would both be inclined... if we had an opportunity to trade back...to do that because it would accumulate picks, and I think that's important for us right now." Donahue said that there are "five or six" receivers that they like in the draft. Currently the 49ers hold the 16th selection in the first round and one extra pick in the sixth


So let's see. SF has the 16th pick and is looking to move down. Denver has the 17th pick and could very well be looking at Stephen Jackson with that pick. NE also wants Jackson but is at #21.

17 is higher than 21 but 16 is higher than 17. :-?

Mark it: If Jackson is still there at 16, NE is movin on up to the east side and taking him.

I would tend to agree, especially with all of NE's draft choices this year. San Fran could easily accomodate them.

It just bothers me that every year my Niners draft a wide receiver when they perennially have some of the best in the game...This year we probably do need help though.

Not to mention, NE has draft picks to burn... I'm sure they'd be happy to toss a pair of picks to San Fran for a shot at Jackson...

If that happens, which of the Jones' do you all see Denver taking?

I could see them taking Greg Jones and putting him into a role similar to Mike Alstott...

Yes, we most definitely do need help this year at WR....Actually we need help at pretty much every position.....Its going to be a very long season

To paraphrase Donahue:

"Hey Bill! If you want Stephen Jackson we'll gladly take one of those extra picks off your hands."

I'm guessing a late 2nd and 3rd along with one of their 1sts or both 1sts will be involved. It seems a steep price, but if NE really wants Jackson, they can afford to splurge for him.

Wouldn't it also be great if Denver made their move for someone other than a RB. Highly unlikely, but their coaching staff showed they can be clandestine when necessary last year.

Noooooooo, not Hamhock!!!!!!!!!!!!

Denver could go TE if Winslow is there or even Linebacker which is a need! Which could still leave Kevin Jones for Dallas. A lot depends on Detriot and whether they take Winslow, Jackson or trade down to someone who really wants Jackson or Winslow or another player. Detroit would then take Perry or another RB at 36th pick. Too many scenarios and rumors to count, ain't it great!

Here's to the end of the Hamrick Hell! ;-D

With all the cap room and lack of movement this off-season, you have to think Parcells has to have something up his sleeve
