    My previous projection for a trade with San Fran was our mid first for their late first, late second, and late fourth.

    However, now it looks like they will be the proud owners of K.C.'s 34th overall pick in early round 2 as a result of the pending Alex Smith trade. If they wanted to move up to our pick in the mid first, instead of giving up those three picks above, might they prefer to give up their late first and K.C.'s early second in exchange for our mid first and our mid third?

    1.17 = 950
    3.79 = 195
    Total = 1145

    1.31 = 600
    2.34 = 560
    Total = 1160

    We could do a lot with 3 picks in the top 50 (SF's late 1st rounder, KC's early 2nd rounder, and our mid 2nd rounder).

    If we wanted to go defense-heavy with these picks, we could draft the heir apparent to Larry Foote, James Harrison, and Troy Polamalu with ILB Kevin Minter, OLB Alex Okafor, and S Eric Reid (possibly the type of thing Dee Dub might like)

    If we wanted to provide Ben with some new weapons to play with on offense (with Heath on the shelf and Wallace/Mendenhall elsewhere), we could go with TE Tyler Eifert, WR DeAndre Hopkins, and RB Giovani Bernard (possibly the type of thing Oviedo might like).

    Or maybe they just throw us all off by not taking the positions most of us are projecting, with something like CB Johnthan Banks, NT Jesse Williams, and OT Menelik Watson (possibly the type of thing Chadman might like).

    What do you folks think about the possibilities that such a trade might provide?
