Edit: As an example, this year the 49ers got a 4th for Josh Morgan, WR who went to the Redskins. He got 5 years 5.75m a year average and only 7.3m guaranteed. I think Barwin will be in that range and net us a 4th if we don't sign anyone else of significance.
I don't expect it this year but 2014 I want to see home trade ups to get better players. So a comp 4th would allow us to trade our regular up.
