    This would make sense if they intend to draft Pitts (or another WR).

    He's 32 but still playing at a high level. Ridley showed he can be WR1. Makes sense for them to get some draft capital for him and free up money to pay Ridley down the line.

    Except you know he's going to end up in the NFC West. It always seems to happen.

    I keep seeing the Niners don't know who they are taking at #3. I really find that hard to believe.

    Do you trade away all those 1st round picks in the the hope you might like one of the guys who are available at #3? You only trade up when you know who you want surely.

    You don't trade up then decide. What if you don;t like any of the options?

    It’s possible that they liked 3 QBs, or 4, or all 5, so were comfortable trading up bc they knew they would get someone they liked but are having difficulty splitting hairs to determine which they select if given a choice.

    Its possible I guess. Seems unlikely though no? What are the odds you like multiple guys enough to spend three 1sts on them?

    Probably the same odds as three QBs going in the top three picks.

    If they are totally out on Garopolo - and they are, I don't think they had to know which of the 3 available rookie QB's they were making the trade for at that time as long as they thought any of the three had a reasonable chance of succeeding. Doesn't seem far fetched to me.

    I think they believe their team is pretty complete, and that QB and injuries are the only things holding them back. I tend to agree with this unfortunately, so I am not really surprised by the trade even if it only gives them a 50/50 chance of improving, because the status quo was not working.

    CBS has their new mock and they now have us taking Zaven Collins. they have Waddle to the Giants ahead of Smith, said that the rumor around the NFL is several teams are shying away from Smith because of his measured weight. They had him going 14 to Detroit in a trade, and called it a steal to get him there.

    last week they had us taking Waddle.

    THey still have SF taking Mac Jones but the guy said the buzz is it's Lance or Fields but they were not buying the buzz. Fields fell in their mock I think he went 8th.

    I think this an average they have so many guys on CBS doing mocks
