49ers as a Potential Trade-Down Partner for Packers?

49ers as a Potential Trade-Down Partner for Packers?

The San Francisco 49ers, complete with two year's worth of draft capital, may be looking at the Green Bay Packers as a potential trade parter in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft.

According to Bill Huber of Packer Report, the 49ers are talking with both the Packers and Dallas Cowboys about—as Huber assumes—the possibility of moving up in the first round.

San Francisco currently holds the No. 31 and 34 picks, along with 12 others. Their 14 picks are an NFL-high in this draft. The Packers are situated at No. 26 overall. Dallas is at No. 18.

The 49ers will have the opportunity to be as aggressive moving up as any team in this week's draft. If the 49ers have a target they don't think will last to No. 31, the Packers could be presented a golden opportunity to move back a few spots and pick up another selection or two later in the draft.

If they could ge pick 31 and 34 that would be great

According to one online draft chart, Packers #26 is worth 700 points. SF #31 worth 600, SF #34 worth 560. Could pick up SF 3rd round pick (#93) worth 128. Pack would then have #31/34, #55, #88, #93.

The 31 and 34 would more then likely be what Dallas would get for trading in their division. I would be happy with the 31 and 61 picks. The one thing I would like TT do that he has yet to is get a future pick.

I would love to see this happen. 18 may be a pivotal point in this draft for GB. If Dallas stays and makes their pick, it will look good for GB. I love the NFL draft, with all it's intrigues and drama.

It stresses me out.

I love it. It is my favorite time of the sports year, outside of the NFL regular season of course. We used to hold big draft parties, with lots of grilled meat and beer. This year we're doing a smaller version, but still grilled meat and beer.

Evan's picture

No, I love it too. But I'm always a nervous wreck during the draft.

I could spend the day watching Thomas the Train if there was meat and beer.

You sound like a guy that doesn't perform well under pressure, judging by nerves during a draft. I relish pressure and perform best when under it.

Evan's picture

Ha. You sure do enjoy drawing hard conclusions from the tiniest shreds of evidence.

They might be looking at similar positions. Could be tough. But if we could move back 5 and pick up a 4th or move back 8 and pick up a 2nd or 3rd, that would be great.

Yeah if we move back and have 2 second rs picks and 2 third rd picks that would be great

Perfect scenario.

A 26 pick isn't worth that much.

Thompson won't trade w SF a team we're chasing unless he gets a sweetheart deal. Get 31 and 61 and he would do it IMO.

Packers' #26 pick worth 700 points according to online draft value charts (which may not be officially what teams use but is probably in the ballpark). SF #31 worth 600, #34 worth 560. SF also has #93 worth 128. Thus Packers #26 equals approximately SF #31 plus #93. That trade would give GB #31, #55, #88, and #93 (2 picks each in rounds 2 and 3).

Before you make that trade you might want to consider the history of the 26th overall pick for the Packers and the pick itself.

Im not sure I want to mess with that mojo! Do you?

That article makes 26 sound due for a bust to me. Everything averages out eventually. If they can get value in a trade down, in this draft, I say take it.

hump's picture

players 25 to 90 are virtually equal in this draft,there all pretty much 2nd rd value,so if we can get 4 picks instead of 3, its pretty much the equivilant of getting a free 2nd rd pick. so comn ted,work your magic,cuz you sure as hell fumbled in free agency! give us a zach ertz,barret jones,marcus lattimore, and stedman bailey with the 1st 4 picks and just kick everybodys ass with our offense like we did 2 yrs ago!!! and hope like hell that mike neal stays healthy and jerron mcmillian has an epiphany!!!! defense can win championships but so can over the top offenses SEE: 80'S AND EARLY 90'S 49ERS 99 RAMS AND 2000'S PATRIOTS,thats the only way that we can salvage another superbowl win, with thompsons refusal to address defensive needs via reasonable priced free agents!!!
