    San Fran should get a good player with the new pick, but I dont know if I like the trade. They need all the help they can get and could still get good players in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. I guess all they really gave up was a 3rd round pick though.

    What if San Fran calls us and says they want to trade the #6 and #22 for our #1?

    The way everything has been going, that could land us Vince Young maybe or at worse AJ Hawk.

    Well, if it were me, I'd hang up the phone. But, as I have said in the past, I am biased.

    It would land us someone other than Vince Young, I would be shocked if we drafted him anywhere(even though I love him)

    but anway it would take alot more than just that, 6 might be a little lower than we want to trade down.

    The more I think about it, I am willing to bet that is what will happen. Trade down with the Niners. That way they can reunite Alex Smith & Reggie Bush. Reggie would probaly be more than happy to stay in California too. I hate it. But it makes sense.

    It would put the Texans in position to have to pass on VY at 6, people are going to mad if they pass him up for Reggie Bush, imagine the uproar if the pass him up at 6 for someone like Vernon Davis (which would be a better pick than VY)

    So here is a thought. Im reminded of the jerome mathis pick. We went to see him, but it was widely reported we were scouting another player, a cornerback named Bartell. We went to the proday of the player we were going to select, but disguised it. What if the player we really want is

    Michael Huff.

    Fills a need at safety, is about the spot he is predicted to go at....it makes sense.
    We went to the UT pro-day...presumeably to look at Vince....but maybe we've all been played?

    You'd be happy if the Texans drafted all UT players wouldn't you?

    Not hardly. I prefer domonique byrd as a TE over david thomas, was advocating carlos rogers last year over derrick johnson. it was just a theory.....calm it down.

    That would be crazy to do... that is not even close to equal value for the #1 overall... they would have to throw in more picks that they have, which are all late rounders.

    They get Reggie, we get Vernon Davis, Huff, or Young at best. For sure Hawk, Ferguson, Wililams, Bush and either Leinart or Young are gone at that point.

    Huff sounds intriguing if we could get more picks from them... plus my bro is a Lions fan and he wants Huff so it would be fun to take him for that reason alone.... gotta love spite.

    Oh yes! I think that the Niners should try to get Bush somehow. I think Matteo would have been happier there too if he had only come out last year.

    after the top 5 or 6 prospects it shows the quality of depth in this draft rds. #2 & #3. the middle to the end of the 1st rd. seems very equal in terms of talent without a huge dropoff thru the 2nd rd. even the beginning of 3rd. :twocents:

    Consider the "Sweet 6":

    RB Bush
    LB Hawk
    TE Davis
    DE Williams
    OT Ferguson
    QB Young

    One of these guys is there at 6, mathematical certainty. Add in a Matt Leinart above 6 and you get your choice of any two.

    If I was the 49ers I draft V. Davis to help out Smith, and then BPA at #22.

    The all knowing Jimmy Johnson pick chart nailed this trade.

    Niners get #22 (780 points)
    Broncos get #37 (530 points) + #68 (250 points)
