They have an excellent front office. They have an excellent head coach. They have a very good, deep roster filled with pro-bowl caliber players. They have one of the best defenses in the league and one of the brightest young stars at QB. They just traded away an extraneous piece to clear 8+ million in cap space and pick up another draft pick, giving them 15 picks this year, 5 in the first 90. 49ers 2013 picks 1. First round: Own pick 2. Second round: from Kansas City in Alex Smith trade 3. Second round: Own pick 4. Third round: Own pick 5. Third round: From Carolina in trade-back during 2012 draft 6. Third round: Likely compensatory selection 7. Fourth round: Own pick 8. Fifth round: Own pick 9. Fifth round: From Indianapolis in trade-back during 2012 draft 10. Sixth round: Own pick 11. Sixth round: From Miami in trade-back during 2012 draft 12. Seventh round: Own pick 13. Seventh round: From Cincinnati for Taylor Mays 14. Seventh round: Likely compensatory selection 15. Seventh round: Likely compensatory selection They don't have a lot of room for rookies, meaning they'll likely trade some picks for future picks (a la Belichick), or to trade up to get superior players in this draft. But there's one other thought: they need a shutdown corner. The Jets have one in Darrelle Revis. The Jets also have a lot of holes. What if the 49ers traded the 2nd rounder they got from KC, and two third rounders, and a fourth rounder, for Revis (or something along those lines)? Then they trade their second, third, and a fifth to move into the first round again, giving them two first rounders plus Revis, and still leaving them with a fifth rounder, two sixth rounders, and four seventh rounders to pick up camp filler, a better kicker, and/or trade for picks in 2014? The best team in the NFC would add a stud CB and two first round picks, have plenty of ammo left over to fill in the holes, and even be able to move some currency forward for next year. I mean, holy smokes they could be frighteningly good.
