I have personally been an advocate of the trade-down scenario. However, as I start to look at the needs of the teams below us, I am wondering who we would trade with. This discussion is more on who we could trade with rather than what we trade them for. Here is my evaluation of the situation: 2. New Orleans - It really depends on if they have Young and Lineart ranked significantly different. If it is Lineart, they would only trade with us if they thought we have a viable trade partner lined up. If they value Young much more (unlikely with Payton as their HC), then we might be able to convince them to trade up. I think they will want Lineart and that it will be hard to convince them we have a trade partner that wants to move up to #1 to get Lineart unless someone trades into the Jets spot (say Detroit for instance). 3. Tennessee - The Titans are in a good spot. They will get the "leftovers" of Lineart, Young, and Ferguson. They really cannot go wrong there. They could even take Bush, so why would they want to trade the farm to move up to #1? The only way that happens is if Chow convinces them they have to Lineart IMO. I just don't see that happening with all of the holes on their team. 4. NY Jets - They need a bit of everything. It is hard to believe how far the talent has dropped off on this team. They are leaning towards trading down, rather than trading up. Now if the right team traded into the Jets spot, however, I could see that new team (Detroit?) wanting to ensure themselves of Bush, Lineart, or Young. 5. Green Bay - They have their potential QB of the future in the fold. They really have a ton of needs and can fill those much easier without trading up. They are in the perfect position in the draft to add Ferguson, Williams, or Hawk. Why move? 6. San Fran/Oakland (coin flip) - I would like to see us add Young, Bush, Ferguson, Mario Williams, or AJ Hawk, so this is as low as I go (I expect Lineart to be drafted early). Oakland is always a wild card in the draft, so never count them out. They might want a Young or Lineart to lead the way or Bush to team with Jordan to give them that 1-2 punch. Not likely this would happen, but I scratch my head on Davis' decisions enough to expect the unexpected. The 49ers are not going up, but they might go down in the draft. If they trade down, their trade partner might be willing to trade up again, but would be a steep price to move up to here and then up to #1. That is as far as I am taking this. Feel free to discuss other teams and your take on the situation. The more I think about it, the less likely I think we find a trade partner.
